I have intermittent chest pain in the same spot every time under my left breast. It is not dependent on what I eat (so no indigestion). I went to the doctor in January and he said it could be anxiety-related (although I don't have anxiety usually). I seem to also get the chest pain, however, when very relaxed. When I take a deep breath, and hold it, the pain feels much relieved (and I get a big head rush :) but then it comes back. It first felt like it was in (but under) my breast, but seems to be under my rib-cage I think. What could this be? The doctor didn't take xrays or anything and I didn't go back because I didn't get any results. It went away for a long time but sometimes it comes back and lasts for several days...
