BREAST PAIN ON LEFT SIDE W/PAIN IN RIBS UNDER BREAST

I HAVE BREAST PAIN IN MY LEFT BREAST AND MY RIBS UNDER MY BREAST. IVE READ A FEW STORIES FROM THE SAME ?S. BUT I DONT HAVE A COUGH OR A COLD. THIS PAIN COMES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND KEEPS ME UP AND THE ONLY RELIEF I GET IS BY PUSHING ON IT. BUT IM SORE FOR MANY DAYS AFTER. WHAT CAN THIS BE SHOULD I SEE A DOCTOR FOR THIS.

Hi,

Do you remember any trauma or injury to the site or any muscle pull?

Take OTC pain relief medications for a few days, try warm comprsses and apply some local analgesic gel.

If the symptoms still persist after a few days you will need to see a doctor and get a proper clinical evaluation done.

It would be advisable to get a chest xray and ECG done.

Is your blood pressure within normal limits?

Regards.
