Noncardiac: Your tests have ruled out a cardiac cause for the chest discomfort. Since it occurs after workouts which are probably strenuous, the discomfort may be due to muscular stress and strain of the rib cage. Sometimes you can actually Palpate the area in question and feel tenderness or worsen it with a deep breath.

I had continue mild pain at left side chest, hand, hand finger and leg for a longer period. Now that not in whole side but at left side of chest only?

Go see doctor: Without more history and physical exam findings you can not rule out more serious illness. Therefore I recommend going to the er or doctor's office.

What could cause pain left side of chest and back?

What could cause pain left side of chest and back?

Many, many things: That being said, ruling out cardiac is the most important thing to do. After that, it could be any number of internal issues, intercostal muscle spasms, reflux, pancreatitis, ulcers, lung issues. If its going all the way through from front to back, this is one of those areas you should have checked out just to be safe rather than assuming its a musculoskeletal issue.

What to do if I have pain left side of chest and back?

May be rib issues: Including muscle spasms causing them to tighten from trauma or postural issues, specific muscle spasms. However, you should be examined to rule out spleen, stomach and even cardiac concerns. I do not see male/female on your question above, but remember women can have completely different signs of cardiac issues as men and this should always be ruled out first.

Please call 911.: Left chest and back pain could be due to a serious underlying cardiovascular or pulmonary condition. If this is acute, see urgent care or, if no one can take you, call 911 immediately for emergency services. If not acute, see your doctor anyways as soon as you can for diagnosis, preferably today. Take care.

Who do I call for sharp pain left side of chest?

"Stitch"?: A sharp, stabbing pain on the inner lining of the chest that increases when you breathe in is caused by a little fold in the membrane that lines the chest cavity. A very deep breath may end it, and in any case it is transient. If this is not what you are having, a physician office visit may be in order.

What can cause sharp pain left side of chest, no heart problems, ?

What can cause sharp pain left side of chest, no heart problems, ?

Ribs, lung: It sounds as if you have had detailed cardiac testing and all normal. Sharp chest pain can be from rib or muscle in chest wall, an irritated surface nerve or from the lung or lining of the lung (the pleura). You can get chest pain from the esophagus, but less likely to be sharp and more likely in the center.

Keep getting random pain left side of chest feels like a lot of pressure and goes to the center of back or shoots to right shoulder blade.?

Keep getting random pain left side of chest feels like a lot of pressure and goes to the center of back or shoots to right shoulder blade.?

Pinched nerve: This could be a pinched nerve that emanates from the spine and causes radiation of discomfort around the rib cage and can be a sharp, shooting discomfort at times worsened with a deep breath. Sometimes the pinching is between two ribs under the breast. Most of the time the problem resolves without any specific treatment. See your physician if symptoms persist.

If I have a heart murmur does that mean I can have heart problems? Get sharp pain left side of chest.

If I have a heart murmur does that mean I can have heart problems? Get sharp pain left side of chest.

Depends: On why you have the murmur. In simple terms a murmur is some type of abnormal flow across a heart valve. It's either too tight a hole or too loose a hole. An echocardiogram can help measure the problem. Many murmurs are called innocent. That is there is an abnormal sound, but the appearance of the valves on echocardiogram are normal.
