What causes random chest dull pain left side?

Many things: Many causes of chest pain. First of all, you need to talk with your doctor to make sure this is not related to your heart. If it is not, then intestinal and musculoskeletal and lung problems may all cause it. However, it is most important to check the heart first!

Pancreas (Definition)

Abdominal organ. It is digestive organ: it secretes enzymes into the small bowel which break down food and help its absorption.

What could cause pain left side of chest and back?

What could cause pain left side of chest and back?

Many, many things: That being said, ruling out cardiac is the most important thing to do. After that, it could be any number of internal issues, intercostal muscle spasms, reflux, pancreatitis, ulcers, lung issues. If its going all the way through from front to back, this is one of those areas you should have checked out just to be safe rather than assuming its a musculoskeletal issue.

What to do if I have pain left side of chest and back?

May be rib issues: Including muscle spasms causing them to tighten from trauma or postural issues, specific muscle spasms. However, you should be examined to rule out spleen, stomach and even cardiac concerns. I do not see male/female on your question above, but remember women can have completely different signs of cardiac issues as men and this should always be ruled out first.

Having dull chest pain left side comes and goes but mostly at night when in bed?

Having dull chest pain left side comes and goes but mostly at night when in bed?

Check with your doc: Chest pains can come from narrowed arteries in the heart. However this usually occurs with exertion and resolves with rest. A pain in the chest at night could also be from acid reflux or some other GI problem. Or it even could be from some muscular or rib pain. I suggest calling your doctor for an appointment to discuss further.

Have costosharp pain left side top breastbone twisted body felt like something popped in middle of chest and pain disappeared since is this possible?

Have costosharp pain left side top breastbone twisted body felt like something popped in middle of chest and pain disappeared since is this possible?

Pop goes the Cart...: It sounds like you giving a pretty good description of pain from the area of the cartilaginous junction between the ribs and the breastbone. This type of pain can come and go for seemingly no apparent reason, although twisting movements could be a contributing factor. Although medical treatment is not generally necessary, if concerns arise, a consultation with a specialist might allay your fears.

I was ovulated yesterday Oct, 23rd & I had pain in my right side last for 5 hours today Oct 24th I hve pain left side last 1hour is my 2 ovary realised?

Over Easy?: Usually one ovary ejects a few eggs & the other ovary takes over next month, back and forth-but like most things in the wild & wacky world of biology, not all is perfect & there can be times when both ovaries send out eggs. In those women prone to some pain at ovulation this can be frustrating & could be confused with something else. But rest assured that ovulatory pain usually resolves in a few days.

I'm 62, gained 30 lbs in one year, mostly in my belly. I have no pain. Left side of belly is larger than right.

Weight gain.: Have you seen your doctor for an evaluation in the course of this year? Have you had an abdominal examination? Blood testing? That's a lot of weight to gain in one year, assuming your eating and activity patterns have not changed dramatically in that year. You really need to good physical examination and directed testing.
