Hey there guys - I hope that you can shed some light on a little bit of discomfort I
ve been having for the last week or so. On my left side, draw a vertical line between my nipple and my collar bone, now move left of that line (away from the center of the chest) about an inch or so (basically right under the shoulder - sorry I dont really have any knowledge of the proper anatomical terms). Anyways in this general area I
ve been having some discomfort, its not sharp or shooting, and kind of extends under my arm - and sometimes extends around to my back at a slightly lower level. If I push on the other side of my body on the spot where it hurts on my left side - the "pain" is replicated on the other side for a few seconds. It doesnt really feel like my chest is tight or anything.
I had this same feeling last year at the exact same time of year and went to the doctor about it. She said I had normal blood pressure and that my heart sounded normal. She figured it was some inflamation that was pinching a nerve and sending out a pain signal. I really have no idea, last night I went for a run and that did not make it any worse - in fact while running I did not notice it but it did return before I went to sleep.
I have no idea what this is, if I should go get it checked out again or what. Anyone ever have similar experience?? Thanks for your help guys.
