Upper right side chest pain, accompanied with sweating, an heaviness in breast, neck spasm an low back ache is this anything to worry about?

Wanna See 60???: If you were in the ER right now and said exactly what you just wrote I'd start asking you questions related to your heart and leave the neck spasms and low back for later. I'd be worried about the sweating and ask more questions. I'd be getting an EKG and maybe some blood tests. In other words, I'd meet you there now if I could. But since I can't, just go and meet some nice ER doc there. Now. ...Read more

I have chest pain on the right side of my breast and my chest looks purple around my chest. What's wrong?

Sounds like a bruise: To me. The breast is tender tissue and you could be bruised from just a ball or minimal injury. If the pain is mild you could apply a heating pad and see if it gets better, turns yellow and goes away. If pain is severe, you may have a rib injury and should be seen (especially if at all short of breath). Ask Mom to help! ...Read more

Pulls and Pleurisy: The usual explanation in someone your age is a simple strain of an intercostal muscle, but inflammation of the linings around the heart or lung can cause this as well.

Chest pain left side near breast for a month now hurts back to aswell as arm feel it more when relaxing also have heavy heartbeat sometimes. Im19 btw?

Chest xray: It is unlikely that you have angina/heart disease given your age and fact that this is constant and for a month. You don't mention breathing, cough, sputum, fevers. Have you had some sort of trauma? Is it positional, reproducible by pressing? You might have pneumonia, or inflammation/damage to major blood vessels or if it is superficial it is musculoskeletal and needs time to heal. ...Read more
