I have pressure radiating from under my left ribcage up into the left chest cavity. There is no pain and the muscles feel very tight. What is going on?

Need to check: This can be from many things as simple as muscle strain to pneumonia and well as heart issues. I recommend that you seek a medical evaluation in either your MD or ER office. Do this today a simple EKG and x ray will give a lot of info. This is not one for the internet
