Hi, I ve had a pain in my chest for the last 3 days now, it s the left hand side of my chest and feels like an internal pain, as opposed to a muscle strain or pectoral damage. It hurts slightly more when I take a deep breath, but I can t exactly locate the pain as I can t feel where it is with my hands. It hurts more when I wake up in the morning and when I am in specific positions, but I can t figure out what it is. I haven t over-exerted myself recently and haven t damaged my chest with impact recently. I am a regular smoker, but haven t had this pain before. I m a 28 year old male, slim build and fairly fit, 6 1 and roughly 13 stone. Can you suggest anything as to what this could be? Thanks Chris

hi Samuel, Thankyou for your time. I am a long term marijuana smoker who quit two weeks ago. I have been trying to detox and was advised to use Stat Flush, of which I have used two. I am 48kg and wish to truly clean it out, not just hide it. Unfortunately I am still testing positive. Today I purchased some St Marys Thistle 35,000 tabs. Recommended dosage 1 per day @ 35g. I do not and have not ever used any other drugs, do not drink alcohol and do not take any prescription medications. I am hoping to get a fifo job asap and hope you can advise me on how much milk thistle to take per day and is there anything else I can do to speed up the process. Regards Marg
