Experiencing muscle spasms under left breast diaphragm area as well as tenderness in back of upper left back, with a lot of burping.Lung congestion to?

See your physician: Say "pain", not "muscle spasm"; you may unintentionally mislead your physician. Any upper abdominal pain with upper back pain radiation is suspicious for pancreatic pain. While it can be a benign gastroduodenitis, you must not miss a more serious diagnosis, like pancreatitis, or a duodenal ulcer penetrating into the head of the pancreas. See your physician. ...Read more

They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Frequent muscle spasms, non painful, flutters, twitches. Had 1 under right breast area. Possible causes?

Med side effects?: Electrolyte problem like potassium or calcium or magnesium, muscle denervation, muscle strain from new exercise program or increased intensity are a few causes.

Just returned from the ER sudden sharp cramp feel under right breast and rib area, eased off a little but still hurts when move dr says muscle spasm?

Intercostal Muscles: Pretty common. Anti-inflamatories, ice, rest. It's usually pretty short lived. If it hurts more when you move and take a deep breath it's likely not cardiac. See your doctor as an outpatient in a few days if it continues. ...Read more

Muscle spasms under right rib cage with something bluging like a hernia below the breast bone. sometimes i have to push it back in.sever pain.

Muscle spasms under right rib cage with something bluging like a hernia below the breast bone. sometimes i have to push it back in.sever pain.

Muscle spasm: This could be a muscle spasm. I have heard this description many times before. Hernias do not occur in the upper abdomen by the rib cage. They do occur in the middle. The muscle spasm can cause severe pain, and "ball up", mimicking a hernia. Best however to see your primary care provider for a more complete evaluation. ...Read more

My left breast just started twitching um muscle spasm or something more serious? I could see the twitching

My left breast just started twitching um muscle spasm or something more serious?  I could see the twitching

Probably not serious: This is likely a fasciculation, localized muscle twitching which is usually not serious, esp. if it happens rarely. It can be related to deficiencies of calcium, potassium and esp. magnesium, so supplementing with magnesium, esp. as mag. taurate or glycinate is worth considering- see http://drcarolyndean.com/magnesium_miracle/ Stress may also contribute to fasciculations. ...Read more

It just felt like a painless muscle spasm behind my left breast. It lasted just a second but set off panic. Possibly anything dangerous?

It just felt like a painless muscle spasm behind my left breast.  It lasted just a second but set off panic.  Possibly anything dangerous?

See that you suffer : From anxiety disorder. It may have been a muscle spasm since your pecs are deep to the breasts. It sounds like it only lasted a second - so you are most likely fine. If you can find a quiet place - do so. Breath in slowly ; deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat. ...Read more
