Re: What does this chest pain mean?
It's definitely not heart burn. I know what that feels like, and this is a totally different feeling. It's only on the left side, and its kind of a sharp pain. Directly deep to my left breast. I have no idea what angina is like, but could that be what this is? Thats the closest description I've found. I feel like there's a correlation between my relaxed breathing rate (which is VERY slow at rest) and the pain. When I put my left arm up over my head too, it seems to happen more often. It feels like a seizing up right inside my ribcage. There's no pain in my left arm, or in my neck or anything, just in my chest and into my breast. It is not tender to the touch at all though. It feels like a charlie horse inside my chest. Only sharp and achy. It kind of steals my breath away for a second. Again, the pain is only on the left side. But if this is a heart problem, why is it happening to me at 18???
