Form a triangle from left collar bone, to nipple, to sternum. Brief, painless, squeeze that seems to pulse in center of that triangle. Cardiac?

Panic or Anxiety: Nope. The most common bizarre (from a medical staff standpoint) is the number of young people who are sure they are having a heart attack and go to the er. First, most brief 'twinges' are muscle spasms in the ribs or sternum. Second. Having heart burn leads to esophageal spasm at times. Then the next is fatigue or stress causing anxiety or panic. Cardiac would be so far down the list. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

However, if new, and if you have any other symptoms like fever, tiredness, or lumps under your armpits, you should probably be seen by someone who can examine them and your whole body to see what is going on. ...Read more

What could it mean when I have pain in the upper right part of my chest, like right under my collar bone? It hurts when I try to breathe in.

Costochondritis can be trated with anti inflammatory pain meds, but other conditions are diff. ...Read more

All that remains is a cosmetic deformity. It can be associated with some syndromes like Marfan and spinal muscular atrophy. See a cv surgeon if you suspect heart/lung dysfunction. ...Read more
