What Causes Dull Pain Below My Right Collar Bone?

Hello and Merry Christmas. the last few days, I ve been having a dull pain below my right collar bone. It comes and goes, but i feel a few times a day. I can only describe the pain as if you have a menstrual cramp, but it s just not in my abdomen. Also, the last few days, I ve been waking up as if i have something heavy on my chest. I m not having a hard time breathing though nor do I feel any pain in my chest, nor numbness or tingling anywhere. I m aware that heart attack are normally related to left arms, shoulders, chest, etc.

Hello,

Your symptoms are not typical of any cardiac disorders. In my opinion this situation could be related to a musculo-skeletal pain or local inflammation (chostrocondritis). Anyway, before coming to this conclusion, I would recommend performing some tests:
- A resting ECG
- A chest X-ray study
- Complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation. In the meantime, I would recommend taking ibuprofen for the pain. Local warm packs can help too.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
