I have been experiencing some short stabbing little pain in my upper chest area. The pain is always localized to one or two little spots. It seems to come on with movement and only last a few seconds. It feels like a brooze almost that starts to throb a little bit. I also notice my chest feels somewhat sore at times. This pain happens a couple times a day. No other symptoms to co-inside with this. Saw my Dr. and he said it sounds like chest wall pain. Prescribed asprin. Still have the pain though. Do you think this sounds like chest wall pain, and do you think this warrants a trip to a cardiologist? I'm 36 years old. Thanks in advance and thanks for being there. Derek
Yes it does sound very much like chest wall pain, pain that is originating from your chest wall structure (muscle and bone) and not your heart. I highly doubt that this warrants a visit to the cardiologist, but since you are concerned about your heart health, it probably would benefit you to seek an opinion from your doctor regarding how to keep the heart healthy (i.e. eat right, exercise daily, do not smoke, and have your cholesterol checked.)
I hope this information is useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for
