See a doctor: This could be any number of things, from infection (like pneumonia or bronchitis), to a spontaneous lung collapse (pneumothorax), to a pulled muscle or inflammation of the ribs. You should get checked out if it is going on for more than a couple of days. ...Read more

Chest pain left side near breast for a month now hurts back to aswell as arm feel it more when relaxing also have heavy heartbeat sometimes. Im19 btw?

Chest xray: It is unlikely that you have angina/heart disease given your age and fact that this is constant and for a month. You don't mention breathing, cough, sputum, fevers. Have you had some sort of trauma? Is it positional, reproducible by pressing? You might have pneumonia, or inflammation/damage to major blood vessels or if it is superficial it is musculoskeletal and needs time to heal. ...Read more

28/m. My dorsal spine MRI says "dorsal kyphosis is lost". My chest hurts since 2 yrs and I now feel this lost curvature is the reason. Lung/heart ok??

28/m. My dorsal spine MRI says "dorsal kyphosis is lost". My chest hurts since 2 yrs and I now feel this lost curvature is the reason. Lung/heart ok??

Hard to say: There is a normal amount of kyphosis seen in the thoracic spine. But an MRI is not a good test for kyphosis, because the MRI is done with a patient laying on the back and it is normal for a person to lose much of their kyphosis in that position. Full length standing X-rays with flexion and extension views are the typical way spine alignment is assessed. ...Read more
