What causes throbbing pain in the middle of chest?

I have a pulsing/throbing pain in my upper right chest. It started out of the blue and has been happening 38 hours. Tylonal and Advil make it better. Sometimes it hurts to take a deep breath. Today the pain is slight but has migrated to the middle of my chest about 4 finger withs below my collar bone. I have been diagnosed with gurd. Also I had a full heart work up about 2 1/2 months ago. All was normal. Heart rate, blood pressure and pulse are all normal.

Hello dear Greetings
Regarding your experience with pain at the right side of your chest radiating to the middle following relief from advil and tylonal I am suggesting strongly that you have developed a Costochondritis (inflammation of the rib joint)


In view of this please continue with your prescribed medication and add neurobion and neurogesic cream

I hope this helps Regards
