About two weeks ago i started to develop a aching pain feeling in my upper chest (typically on the left side, though not always) and occasionally sharp internal pains in my lower abdomen that feel similar to hunger pains. The pain in my chest typically extends no lower than my rib cage and and while sometimes its much more noticable than others for the most part it is always there... the best way i can describe it is a griping sensation, not exactly painful, but more uncomfortable. motion and physical contact have no effect on this pain and it seems to come and go randomly. the pain sometimes radiates to the back. when it acts up it generally doesnt last more than a few seconds and it happens about 10-15 times a day. I am a male 23 years old, height 5 ft 8 in and weigh close to 150. No difficuly breathing or exercising. Admittedly my diet is not the best but i am in decent shape. the doctor took an ekg of the area and couldnt find anything wrong. Does anyone have a general idea about what may be causing this?
