Pleuritic chest pain: Pain in your chest, that occurs or gets worse when you take a deep breath, is referred to as pleuritic chest pain. Pleurisy, the most common cause, is due to inflammation of the linings of the lungs. Pleurisy usually resolved on its own, but taking nonsteroid-anti-inflammatory medicine such as ibuprofen, can be helpful. Pleuritic chest pain may also be caused by more serious conditions.

I've been waking up with upper back pain mostly between left shoulder blade and spine. Hurts when I breath and can feel it in my left lung/ chest.?
Thoracic Spine: Thoracic spine areas will allow nerves to exit out of the spine and wrap around into the chest wall and abdomen. So herniated discs there can cause pain into these areas as well. I would consider seeing a pain specialist for treatment options like epidural steroid injection or even facet joint treatments.See 1 more doctor answer
What would cause 1 sharp, 5 second, deep pain in chest to the left of sternum? No other symptoms. Chronic upper back pain. Fear cardiac. PCP says heart ok
Muscular?: Often, sharp, brief pains in the chest are due to strained ligaments or joints In chest wall where rib joins to breast bone, called costochondritis. When you bend, turn, deep breathe, or cough this can cause brief stabbing pain. Usually heat to area and Advil or aleve (naproxen) can help. If pain continues to occur, or gets worse, or you get short of breath or other symptoms, see doctor again. Good luck!

See doctor: If you're left arm is feeling numb and heavy right now, its prudent to be evaluated now. If it always feel heavy then waiting is okay. Left arm heaviness, jaw tightness, chest pain, is cardiac until proven otherwise. Although, both left arm heaviness and numbness, upper back pain may be caused by sleeping in awkward position or even reflux but its better safe than sorrySee 1 more doctor answer
