Upper left chest pain when moving left arm?

Upper left chest pain when moving left arm?

Likely muscular: Usually if the pain occurs with movement it is probably related to the muscles that enable your arm to work. If you can recreate the pain by pressing on the area with your hand/fingers this should make it more clear that it is muscular in nature. Feel better.

I'm 37 female have chest pain when moving and in general feel poorly I have sle lupus id this part of its overall sysmtoms?

Lupus: If you have been formally diagnosed as having lupus by a physician, it is not unusual to have pleurisy and fatigue. Pleurisy is the inflammation of the lining of the lung, and can be quite painful. Treatment of the pleurisy follows treatment of your lupus. Your rheumatologist should be able to adjust your medications to reflect your worsening symptoms.

Can asthma cause chest pain when moving my upper torso? When I lay down in some positions the pain goes away. When sitting is worst. I don't cough @all

CP of asthma.: If anything, asthma may cause a chest discomfort that occurs when taking in a deep breath. Shouldn't be reliably related to body position. This may be due to something else.

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?

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.

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!

Sound anxious: These are all symptoms which could be caused by anxiety. So you need to learn how to relax and control your emotions and have a good handle over your life. You may need counseling which can be helpful to calm you down. In the meantime, try to do daily exercise (like walk for half an hour) as this will strengthen your body and reduce your mental stress level.

Sharp chest pain at the center and a little bit on the left side. When breathing, coughing or just moving.

Musculoskeletal: At age 16, this is most likely a problem with the rib cage itself, maybe something called costochondritis. These things are not dangerous. Best to see a primary care provider if you're worried. Hope this helps!

Chest pain during moving or deep breathing It started yesterday I played the day before yesterday chest exercises at gym No other symptoms?

Probably: Musculoskeletal but if it lasts more than 48 hours you should see health care provider for evaluation. Try a non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen to see if it helps.

Intermittent sharp chest pain on left for 3 days. Feel fine then suddenly hurts severely when breathing or moving. Then feel fine again. Muscular?

Pinching: Sharp, shooting chest pains brought on by a deep breath, cough, or certain motions are often due to pinched intercostal nerve or muscle which runs between 2 ribs. This is more of a nuisance rather than anything serious and tends to resolve without any treatment. If symptoms persist, have your physician examine your chest carefully.

Costochondritis?: Rib bones don't come all the way to breast bone. Last few inches are more elastic cartilage so your chest can rise w/ breath & twist when you do. Where cartilage meets rib or breast bone, is a joint that gets inflamed & painful under right circumstances, like too much coughing, twisting, heavy lifting, etc. Can last up to 8 weeks, responds to ibuprofen. See md if worsening or persisting.

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?

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.

How do you know if your chest pain is anxiety related? I've had chest pain for 3 days but am under a lot of stress due to a breakup, moving out & work

How do you know if your chest pain is anxiety related? I've had chest pain for 3 days but am under a lot of stress due to a breakup, moving out & work

You don't: While the chest pain might be anxiety related, you need to rule out anything medical at first. Contact your primary care provider asap or go to the nearest er. Good luck!
