I have sharp moderate pain in upper right chest and back when I breath. Just had Ekg heart was fine?

See below: If it hurts only with a very deep breath, and also hurts stretching to either side with right arm extended above your head, or with twisting at the waist it's likely muscle strain or a pinched nerve. If it hurts with even shallow breathing, and not with the above exercise, viral pleurisy is likely. **However to make a definite diagnosis you need to see your physician and be examined. *See comments

I am have chest pain its like someone is sitting on my chest it goes in to my back so idk what it could be?

I am have chest pain its like someone is sitting on my chest it goes in to my back so idk what it could be?

IDK either, call 911: Chest pain that's described as someone sitting on your chest w/pain going thru to back needs to be evaluated immediately/emergently. Never go online for something like this hoping for someone to answer. Call 911 or your local emergency services. Don't drive b/c you may pass out on way to ER. Unlock front door so they won't have to break it down in case you do pass out. And take full size aspirin.

Pain is never normal--it is a warning signal and should be evaluated, especially if it persists. If you have accompanying shortness of breath, palpitations, or lightheadedness, do not continue to exercise and certainly see a physician ASAP.

Been having left chest pain and on back of left scalpa I lift weights and do cardio could this pain be possible due to weight trainning?

Been having left chest pain and on back of left scalpa I lift weights and do cardio could this pain be possible due to weight trainning?

Most likely: Given your age, gender and level of fitness, the most likely cause is "musculoskeletal", that is related to the tendons, bones and muscles in your body; rather than your heart itself. This is especially suggested by the pain being present with lifting weights "isometric", which usually doesn't strain the heart itself. Visit your doctor, to screen for more serious, but unusual causes.

Me and my husband have been experiencing really bad chest pain on the left side and it shoots into my back and under Brest feels like I'm being crushed?

Both of you?: That's unusual, to be sure. I mean that both of you hurt in the chest. You are young, and that by the odds or by statistics makes certain ailments more likely than others. Musculoskeletal pains or problems are most prevalent. These can usually be deduced by virtue of the fact that motion or changes in body positions makes the problem evident.
