I have chest pain that feels like sting?

Recent concussion. Still have headache. Just felt a stinging chest pain on left side. Have felt it before though. Concussion related? Coincidence?

Less likely related: They are less likely to be related. You may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. If the headache doesn't clear or gets worse, see your physician. http://www.brainline.org/content/2008/12/headaches-after-head-injuries-8212-post-traumatic-headaches.html ...Read more

Get seen by doctor!: Anytime you have the combination of chest pressure, or heaviness, with/without shortness of breath, you need to see a doctor. With the Nexplanon you are at increased risk for blood clots, this goes up much more if you smoke. See your doctor and get checked out. If you get worse, go to the emergency department. ...Read more

Chest pain with breathing deep for 4 days. On day 5: stinging, pulsating pain in left chest lasting 2 hours since waking up, intensity 3/10. Gone without treatment. Could this be costochondritis ?

Yes, but: These symptoms could also be more serious. These symptoms could be due to clot in the pulmonary arteries (pulmonary embolism) or abnormal blood flow to the heart. The additional patient information listed with your question implies recent workup with d-dimer, ECG and chest xr, so maybe you have already been seen. If you have not yet, please see your doctor or go to the emergency department. ...Read more
