On the other side is the joint between the collar bone and the sternum which can have similar problems as well. You certainly would want to make sure it is not cardia related as well. Thank you for your question. ...Read more

More info needed: Without a complete history and physical answering your question would be likely inaccurate. If you are indeed having some chest discomfort below your left collar bone seeing your doctor would be the most helpful to determine what is going on here. Please see your doctor or if unavailable go to the emergency room. Good luck ...Read more

This can be difficult to differentiate so see a physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more
