Hi, I am a 25yr old male with no kind of medical problems currently known. I am having strong chest pains at various locations on left side of chest wall . I will have them mostly near the sternum on left side and sometimes below the nipple close to bottom of ribs. Also, I have noticed a pulse like throbbing in my left bicep at times. I am a smoker but never had this problem and also my brother has recently passed and I feel it may have something to do with the ache I have been feeling. Also, only once actually I was having pain and could actually stretch and feel only the left side near the heart stretching. All of this is somewhat sudden and any advice would be appreciated.
