Collar bone: Probably during the coughing spell you strange some of the muscles that attached to the area of the clavicle which is part of the pectoral muscle. This should go away after the coughing spells subsides.

Calm: Yes, smoking and birth control pills are associated with increased stroke and blood clot risk. However, it is still uncommon. Please see your doctor and get checked. This is a good moment to consider to quit smoking. Good Luck.

Does not: "sound" serious! Are you "poking" at it???? A strained neck muscle can cause a pain in that area. Ge it checked out by your Primary Care Provider so you can reduce your anxiety and (i bet) stop "poking" at it! Hope this helps! DR Z

I have a sharp pain on the left side of my collar bone. What can it be?

Hard to say: The collar bone connects the arm to the torso. On one side is a joint called the acromioclavicular joint and it can be injured or become arthritic or inflamed. 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.

My left collar bone hurts and the pain moves from my left side of the neck and continues thru the bone than goes to the back side of the bone.

Needs evaluation: The pain could be coming from a variety of sources. The most likely cause is musculoskeletal; it could be due to a muscle strain, or referred from the neck. However, the pain could also be non-musculoskeletal, coming from your lungs, for example. If it has persisted for more than a week and is not improving, I would definitely have it evaluated.

I have a pinching pain in the middle sort of left part of my chest. It comes and goes all day. Sometimes the pinching goes under my collar bone too???

Nerve: If the pain is sharp and fleeting, is brought on by a deep breath or cough, a pinched or irritable intercostal nerve which runs between two ribs may be the cause. This is a nuisance rather than a serious problem and usually resolves on its own. Lung pathology seems less likely, but see your physician if symptoms persist or worsen.

No: No, I would not worry about it, but it might be wise to be evaluated. It can be something related to the collar bone, or it may be related to an rotation of your torsoe that can occur in conditions such as scoliosis. Don't worry, but be seen.

Old injury?: Did you have a fracture in the past? It may just be a healed fracture. If not you should get it looked at by a doctor and likely an xray. There are conditions that are of concern that present this way and should be looked at.

Lump on left side of collar bone causes?

Nonspecific: Unfortunately this is an extremely nonspecific description. A soft fatty lump may be a simple lipoma, which is benign and does not require treatment. If you have had prior fracture of the collar bone, you may be feeling a bony callus or a residual deformity from the fracture. If the lump is tender or has unusual coloration or has been rapidly changing in size, then you need evaluation.
