Chestpain: Pain with breathing? Can be pleuritis, that is inflammation in the pleura( lung membrane). Reflux can also cause chestpains. Futhermore Anxiety, especially work related stress can cause pain in ribs and cartilage joints. Stabbing pain is mostly not related to Angina as this is a pressure pain.Drink Lancap for reflux, Besemax for inflammation and muscle relaxation.if pain worse consult GP.
