I am a 21 year old female. I didn't do anything out of the normal today but have been experiencing a visceral pain in the lower left side of my chest radiating into my left breast. I can feel it all the time but especially when I exhale. Any idea what it is/how to make it better?

Hello and welcome ! I am sorry you are in pain .I am not sure about what is bothering you but ,if it were me I would go to the Dr .Like your name says it's probably nothing but it won't hurt to get it checked out .Life is too short to worry so why not go to your Dr to ease your mind ? I hope you get to feeling better soon
