Pain On Left Side Of Chest Above Breast
What would cause a dull burning pain on left side of chest above breast line and below collar bone? 20 minutes so far. Pcp says heart ok.
A couple of things: There are a few things that can cause that symptom. Regurgitation and reflux probably being one of the more common ones. If your PCP has ruled out the heart and there's nothing else except that prolonged burning then, I think it less likely cardiac. You may also have an entrapped nerve twig supplying the pectoral region or skin (perhaps trapped by the clavicle)...sensory neuropathy. ...Read more
Pain in left side of chest above breast. Comes and goes, not constant. Sometimes a sharp pain, today more of an ache.

Pleurisy or costochondritis: Costochondritis is an inflammation often caused by a virus in the Cartlidge in your ribs it will hurt when you breathe and if you press on it.

Could hormonal changes in a woman cause a swollen lymph node in left side of chest (above breast, below collar bone) for 2 days now? No fever yet.
NO: This should not be related to a hormonal problem. Usually when a lymph node (if that is what it is) enlarges as a response to infection or inflammation of which there can be many causes. It may not be a lymph node. It could be a cyst or an early abcess. If it persists, it needs to be checked by a doctor. ...Read more
Chest pain: That is unlikely a heart problem as it changes with breathing so one down of the bad things. It could be pleurisy or inflammation of the linings of the lung and chest wall, or musculoskeletal as in the muscles in between the ribs that get stretched with breathing. In any case try advil or aleve (naproxen) or your Ibuprofen and see, and then go see your doctor and discuss it. ...Read more

Sharp stabbing pain left side of chest 1-2 ribs below breast. Started yesterday. Noticed some small swelling today that is sensitive to touch. Hurts to breathe, raise left arm, bend, twist, cough, laugh. 36 y/o male. Was driving when it hit suddenly and
Go see ur FamilyDoc: Sensitivity to touch makes me think of zoster/shingles (http://goo. Gl/TaqS6s). Without that, I think of pleurisy which could due to pneumonia. Perhaps you overdid one of your upper body exercise routines (although this shouldn't usually cause pleurisy or painful breathing). Bottom line, you need to see your Family Doc for complete & thorough evaluation. ...Read more
