Hi i'm a 20 year old male and over the past 7 or 8 weeks i have been suffering from pains around the left brest area, left armpit on the inside around the hollow part and occasionally down my left arm. Ive been to A&E twice and have had heart tests, chest x-rays and pulse tests and the doctors said everything was fine with my heart and was sent home with some painkillers. At first a decided to leave it at that and try the painkillers but as the pain didn't seen to be going away i went to see my local GP for another opinion and he advised me to have some blood tests done to see if it was my heart causing the pain or just something i didn't quite understand but it had something to with acid reflux and gas. I went back a week later and the blood tests came back showing no problem with the heart but i could possibly have underactive thyroids, wheather that is a separate issue i don't know, anyway ive been prescribed these tablets for the gastro problem and they seemed to be working but over the last few days ive been having pain once more in the breast, armpit and occasionally on the inside of the arm, but this time i seem to be having a lot of gas, and i'm sorry to say but out of both ends, and everytime the gas passes the pain stops for a little bit. I'm just confused and really woried about having a heart attack i'm having sleepless nights worrying about it. Can somebody help me????
I have recently had a similar problem. I felt a huge pain in my underarm/breast area. Bending over to touch my toes would aggravate the problem. And, per your expressed relief upon passing gas... my pain would subside with passing of gas and after going number 2, it was gone. I do not believe this is due to constipation, as I am generally not constipated (and I wasn't then, either). Anyhow, I am having this problem but a week later, and again with the burping. It is under my right arm/breast this time, not my left as it was last time. I have not been to see my doctor yet, as I wish to see if it is something that I can manage naturally, without meds.
