I have been having chest pain on the left side of my chest. I dont know if its my breast that is causing me pain or my heart. I feel relieved when I lay down but once I stand it seems to come back. I also took a bayer asprin just in case I might be having a heart attack but taking it seems to not relieve me of the pain. Is this a heart problem, muscular or breast problem? has anyone experienced anything like this? I am also having shortness of breath and my heart beats fast, these are new symptoms.
HI I NEED THE SAME INFO. MY CHEST LEFT SIDE ABOVE LEFT BREAST HAS STARTED HURTING AND THE PAIN IS CONSTANT AND EXCRUCIATING! HURTS WORSE WHEN I MOVE AND/OR BREATHE AND HAS NOT GOTTEN BETTER SINCE IT STARTED ABOUT 12 HRS AGO. IT WAS JUST A DULL PAIN @ 1ST BUT NOW IT HAS GOTTEN TO THE POINT WHERE I WONT BE ABLE TO TAKE IT MUCH LONGER... WILL PROB END UP IN THE ER, BUT I HAVE ALREADY TAKEN MEPERGAN(I TAKE FOR MIGRAINES) AND HAS NOT HELPED THE PAIN:( i also had a terrible migraine the past 2 days, which is finally gone, and my right upper arm was hurting several days prior TO THIS NEW PAIN, BUT IS JUST A DULL PAIN NOW THAT THE LEFT CHEST/ABOVE BREAST PAIN HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE MIX.)
