What does vibrating sensation in the chest on the left side indicate?

I am having vibrations in what appears to be my left chest muscle. I Play much golf and swing really hard .I am a left handed player. After hitting about 150- 200 balls, I feel a tenderness in my left chest area and get these weird vibrations. They are not related to my heart beat which remains normal during vibration episodes. It appears that I have torn muscles but not sure. What do you think

Hello,

Continuous use of particular muscles in short successive period can lead to muscle fatigue. It may represent as muscle twitching (you describe it as vibration). Make sure you are hydrated (simple water or coconut water or lemon salt water) while playing this type of games to prevent electrolyte disturbance because of dehydration. Second thing get blood investigation - serum electrolytes did check for electrolyte imbalance. As hypocalcemia or hypokalemia, both can cause muscle problems.


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

Regards,
Dr. Hiren Hirpara
