The first thing I will say is that I’ve been to a doctor and it’s very unlikely that I am having any heart trouble. That was the first thing I wanted to get checked out.
I noticed a few weeks ago at night when sleeping on my side, with my shoulders hunched that I would sometimes wake up in the night with a stabbing pain in my chest (middle/left side). I had been lifting in the 1-3RM range for a couple weeks and perhaps this did something. I am assuming it is something structural like a tendon.
Anyway, I quit all chest work for a couple weeks to let the inflammation or whatever it is recover, and two days ago I did 3 sets of incline DB bench (12RM). The next morning the pain was back, but only for a very short time.
Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? Any ideas for recovery?
