I have chest pains under my left breast/rib cage its a stabbing shooting pain its like spasm it really intense hurt when I breath in deeply im 18?

Not heart: This may be muscular or pleurisy. It can really hurt but may be more of a type of inflammation from overexercise or viral illness that is coming on and causes the chest cavity to have pain. If the pain is below the chest cavity it may be all muscular. See the doc but would take antiinflammatories in the meantime. ...Read more

How to treat a musculosqueletic pain. I have been having this chest pain below left breast. Sorry if I couldn't write it properly. Thx alot.

Sorry for the wait: I've reviewed your meds, all over the counter. You are attempting self-treatment of muscular skeleton pain however, since pain meds especially codamol have offered no relief, I think you need to seek medical attention, and since you have upper left- sided chest pain (a cardinal symptom of heart attack or angina) best to go to er.
