I think it would be wise to see your doctor and have it evaluated with and EKG and possibly a monitor worn for 24 hours to check for abnormal heart rhythms or other potentially harmful causes of the symptoms. ...Read more

I have been having minor chest pain for about a week. Now its slightly sore on the left between my back and chest but decreased pain is this serious?

Does not sound : Serious. Sounds like you may have unknowingly hurt something maybe in your back that you felt in your chest and now it is getting better. Since it is getting better that is a good sign and a sign that it is not serious. When something is wrong in your back you often feel it in your chest, but only worry about the chest and don't pay attention to to back till the chest improves. ...Read more
