It could be a muscular pain as in case of costochondritis. As of now, you can use analgesics/anti-inflammatory combination like aceclofenac/serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief. If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hi there I m a 29 year old female and generally in good health. Now and again I get a tightness across my chest more or less my breast bone. Sometimes it feels like it s muscular as I wear a heavy uniform at work. However I m my own worst enemy and tend to get anxiety and believe I have to keep taking deep breaths to get rid of this! Is this anxiety? I ve an appointment soon to see my gp. I supose my diet won t help either! Thanks.

Hi, my daughter who has just turned 16 has complained about having chest pain while playing soccer today and asked us to take her to the Doctors - like her heart is really straining and about to explode. Also feeling nauseous. Symptoms did improve when she stopped playing. However she now says this has been happening for a couple of months now. She is also having trouble regulating her body temperature and seems to be too hot or too cold - sleeps with nine blankets on her bed and always has cold hands and feet. I am going to make an appoitnment with our GP but would appreciate your thoughts. In December she did get horribly drunk on her Father s Rakia - very high alcohol content. We came home to find her barely/not breathing, her Father had to do CPR while we waited for an ambulance. When they arrived one of the ambulance drivers also rubbed her chest to stimulate her heart. She was given an all clear from the hosipital later that night but I am worried that this may have caused some damage. Thanks
