Laci, I hope I don't sound like too much of a mom in this post, but I can't help it, I am one.
I wouldn't even begin to try and tell you what the pain might be, because there are so many things. Probably starting with something really as simple as a pulled muscle but I'd say if it doesn't go away very soon, get in to your Dr.
Here's the mom part...You said it yourself. You're only 23. Please quit smoking? I have a 24-yr.-old daughter that I'm trying to get to stop smoking. It's stinky and nasty and ugh, expensive.
But really, our main concern is your chest pain so get that taken care of first, k? I'll be thinking of you so please update soon? Take care....
