Too many sites are mixing in that I am having a heart attack. It doesn't feel like I envision a heart attack feels.
First, I have asthma and allergies and take the usual meds. I've felt pleurisy and this is not that.
A few weeks ago I had a very sharp pain. It felt like it was not my left lung, nor was it my breast or nipple area. It felt like it was not my heart but on top of my heart and below the breast area. It went away. For the last few weeks the tissue surrounding my nipple is swollen, sensitive to pain, and it feels like a couple of knots are surrounding the nipple.
I used to lift weights and the type of knot and toughness and soreness is something I always used to imagine when I once read an article about a guy who benched to much and his chest muscle separated from his shoulder and bunched up in a knot on his breast. This is much smaller though and no noticable symptoms.
Also, I might add that on this same left side I had surgery last year on my mandible. I had a partial perodidectomy due to a tumor in my parotid gland that grew around my perotid artery.
Also since I have turned forty I noticed my chest muscles are not smooth striations but seem to have broken down. I had a chest xray in July and nothing came from it.
I take Benadryl to sleep. I have viewed sites where some say Benydryl causes cancer and tumors. I don't think this is cancer or a heart attack, but I am not sure what to make of it.
