Chest pain when moving going toward the left side of my chest and towards my left shoulder. I also have fairly bad heartburn from time to time. Why?

Probable esophageal: The problem of heartburn and chest pain are closely related. Heartburn, a symptom of gastro-esophageal reflux (gerd), can occasionally result in spasm of the lower part of the esophagus. This is perceived in your brain as left sided chest, shoulder, and arm pain. It is a great mimic to cardiac pain. The underlying problem is likely gerd as consequence of abnormalities such as a hiatal hernia. ...Read more

Central Chest pain when moving upper body or bending forward, no pain upon rest or inhaling, could this just be muscular?

Yes: The presence of chest pain with movement most often indicates a muscular cause. Usually cardiac pain is worse with exertion, and lung related causes of chest pain are worse with breathing. Nothing is ever 100%, though. If you have risk factors for heart disease (smoking, obesity, high BP, diabetes, or a family history), see your doctor to be sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I'm having upper chest pain that's gets worse when moving or sitting up straight. Feel a pressure then pain when moving the area more on the rigt side?

This is likely: musculoskeletal pain, meaning that it originates from the muscles or connecting tissues in the chest wall, ribs and sternum (breast bone). There may be some inflammation in these tissues, or even in the lung lining (pleuritis). Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories work well for this and I would advise full dose ibuprofen or naproxen. Icing may help. Avoid re-injury...lifting, carrying heavy objects. ...Read more

Sudden sharp pain could be associated with the rupture of a small bleb or air pocket on the lung surface, and the sensation of movement could be from the lung not being fully expanded. More serious conditions should be ruled out. ...Read more

1 of many causes: We have 24 ribs with 24 joints to vertebrae in back and 20 to cartilage connected to the sternum in front. Ribs 11 and 12 "float" in front. As kids we use these joints and can twist like snakes. As adults, these joints permanently fuse but at first we often re-articulate these joints with sudden moves causing a sharp pain that usually lasts until the joint re-fuses which takes up to 6 weeks. ...Read more
