Checked with doctor?: Your symptoms are consistent with anything from anxiousness to acid reflux from the stomach, to hyperthyroidism or even atypical acute coronary syndrome, to name just a few things that come to mind. I see you are in fact on levothyroxine. Last time your blood levels were checked on your t4/tsh? You may benefit from a little dose adjustment. Make an appointment to see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

I get brief chest pains in the center of my chest, under my left breast, and the surrounding area. Very brief. I can't tell if its from heart burn or not?

I'm having chest pains on the left side (breast area). I checked my blood pressure & heart rate-normal what could this be? I had the school nurse check my blood pressure and my heart rate and it was both normal. We even did some pulling exercises to chec

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose the cause of the pain in the area of your left breast. I noted that you tagged this as cardiology, which suggests that you are concerned about your heart. I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I don't hear you describing this constellation of symptoms.
Just because you were not able to reproduce the pain doesn't necessarily mean that it is not of a musculoskeletal origin. Your symptoms are very - nonspecific, so there are many possible causes. Being a single mother is terrifically stressful, if you feel stressed consider deep breathing exercises. It is very fast and very effective, breath in deeply and slowly through your nose. Raise your arms so that you can more fully fill the lungs, hold for a five count. Exhale slowly through your mouth. Do this about 12 times, it can be remarkably calming.
If you find that the pain is not resolving or is recurring, would recommed evaluation. Take care. ...Read more
