Pain in left side above heart

I get pain only between the hours of 9 PM and midnight and only if I am sitting on my computer chair . The pain is a sharp throbbing pain .Anyone have a similiar problem and if so how can it be treated ?

Re: Pain in left side above heart

Holy Bananas...that is my worst pain....it is right in the upper left corner of my chest. Sometimes it can be really painful. I have other pains, but I think that this one is the one that makes me crazy... Mine is also something that usually happens in the evening....
Sometimes in the day, but usually evening. Also, sitting at the computer can cause your stomach to be smooshed depending on how you sit, and my doctor said that any bending or slouching can cause problems....
Take Care!

Re: Pain in left side above heart

it's heart burn... for sure.

it can be throbbing pain in the heart. and when you put your hand over your chest, you can actually feel the heat from the painful areas and it 'feels' hotter than other areas of your body.

Gaviscon usually works for me, it usually takes 45 minutes or so, but it works...
Best of Luck!

I went to the doctor tonight.He said its not heartburn because that is not just on the left side and not just from sitting .
