    Default Chest pain and pregnancy

    I have been getting really sharp chest pains lately. It is up near my collar bone and under my breast and sometimes down the bottom on my neck. I have had asthma before but I'm not sure it's asthma. I get a tiny bit wheezy but it's mostly just the sharp pain.

    Has anyone else had this?

    Please get this checked out immediately. These were my symptoms and I had blood clots in my lungs. Its very dangerous during pregnancy. I am not saying you have it but please get it checked to be safe.

    I agree with the other ladies that its important to get checked out. I had severe chest pain just between my ribs & I'd developed liver damage as part of HELLP syndrome - the pain was my enlarged liver. 2 OBs didn't know what was causing it but thankfully the MFM specialists did.
    I don't mean to scare you & it likely isn't what's wrong with you but it doesn't hurt to see someone ASAP.

    Thought I'd update and let you all know that it was just my asthma playing up. It's all cleared up now that I've had my bub.
