What causes severe chest pain spreading to breastbone?

Hi, whilst exercising I developed a bad chest pain that spread from breastbone area across to my left shoulder, my shoulder blade and then progressively down my arm. I could barely lift my arm afterwards for about 20 minutes. I am 28, 150lbs any and 5.6 I had pre-eclampsia during my first pregnancy and suffered very high blood pressure for 3 days before admition to the point of severe chest pain. I have regular palpitations, mostly when led in bed at night. Should I be getting this looked into?

Hi,

It is due to muscular pain and you can take analgesics like Tramadol or Diclofenac for pain relief. It has got no relation with your eclampsia. If symptoms persist, you can consult an orthopaedician and get evaluated.
