I have been experiencing pain and pressure in my chest, around my rib cage and sternum which can be reproduced by pressing on the area. It sometimes catches my breath. I am 72 years of age and walk five miles a day, most days, up and down hills. I also lift light weights, 30 lb bicep curls,, three days a week. I do have a torn rotator cuff which needs repair. My question is, could this be symptoms of gall bladder problem and could it be aggravated by fact that in past three months, I have begun to take cold pressed flax seed oil, one tablespoon per day, for the omega 3 and 6 benefit. The pain has only started within the past month.

  • My husband gets this from inflammation of the plural cavity. You started taking good anti inflammation dietary supplements so you may have irritated something.

  • I am an alomost 32 year old female. I started having severe chest pain and pressure right in the middle of my checst. When I bend over it feels like there is a rock pushing down inside my chest. The pain seems to go through to my left sholder blade. I go to the gym about 5 days a week doing both cardio and weight lifting. I havn't done anything different & I am not sure what this pain is caused from. It is so bad today, it is going to keep me from the gym! I can't even pick up my daughter.
