    Default Chest pains.... should i be concerned?

    I get a constant tightening pain in my chest on the left side under my breast. Sometime it will last all day, sometimes it will last for a few minutes. I can go days without it then it will be back again. Its not extremely painful just like a tight feeling or a dull ache. I dont know if its something i should be concerned about or not because I'm a bit of a hypochondriac lol and also a massive worrier.

    Has anyone experienced this??

    Any chest pain should be investigated.

    I agree, head to your GP about any chest pain. It could be heaps of things - heart-related, muscular, even gall bladder pain.

    Definitely get checked by a dr sooner rather than later.

    I do sometimes get chest pain that is so bad I can hardly breathe, it can last anywhere from minutes to hours, and comes and goes. Mine is caused by inflammation of the cartilage between my ribs. Its like a tightening pain, but stabby too, if that makes sense?

    The other issue I had was a few years ago, and I had a muscle in my chest on my top left side that was contracting and spasming. It was brought on by stress, went away on its own. But I ended up in the ED for that one and had to wear a heart monitor for a few days, just to be sure it wasn't a heart problem.

    It's not worth taking chances. Hope its just a muscular thing for you hun.

    I would get checked just to be sure. It's quite possibly acid reflux, try having a few days without any tea, coffee, alcohol, meat, dairy and drink lots of water and lemon juice and see if it starts to subside. Look up alkaline foods and eat lots of them. But definitely get checked first, a simple ECG takes a few moments.
