I have had chest pain for the past few days. It was at first in the center of my chest, and it was a pressure feeling, like something heavy was just pushing on my chest. It has come on and off, and sometimes is accompianed with stomach pains, and nausea. Should I see the doctor? Does anyone know what this may be? It is a very bad feeling.

  • Not sure, but I have chest pain and it got diagnosed as pluerisy. I had a lung infection (mild phnumonia) which was treated and the pluerisy came after that. It hurts more to breathe in deep and feels ok if only shallow breathing. It is worse in night and morning and is sore to press ribs. Hope this helps, good luck.

  • have you considered panic attack? know it sounds like something minor to what your experiencing but believe me its not! i wake up every morning with nausea and chest pain. and i am a "healthy" 24 yr old! go see your doctor to rule out anything serious- don't be scared to get second or third opinions either!

  • Heyah, I am a 13 year old girl, normally very healthy. 11 days ago I started getting chest pains myself on the left side, and my mum took me to A and E 3 times back and forth and the same with the doctors. I found out it was Tietze's syndrome, which is a very rear condition. It is very painfull and you can hav it beetween 3 days and 6 months its really mad.I am on co-codeamol or something like that 500mgx2 4 times a day. It takes the edge off it. These are the symptoms, Pains in the left side of chest, you can feel like you are having a heart attack!, trouble breathing, waking up at night, difficulty ***g any type of exercise and having hot and cold flushes.I hope this helped!:)Love Miley.:)

It is a very bad feeling.When do your chest pains start? Does it hurt when you breathe deeply, or does it hurt randomly? Do you have a history of heart problems, lung problems, or anxiety disorders, because those can definetly cause chest pain (I've had an anxiety attack before, as well as seasonal asthma). I'm probably leaning towards something like a gallbladder problem, heartburn, GERD, or something like that, but I'm not sure.I hope that it's alright! :)

I checked up and it could be Chostochondritis ( Inflamation near the ribs and breast connection) This could be your cause. Tests have shown that 70% of women Get chostochrondritis and 30% of men do. Also you could be going through puberty. I read an article (not completley accurate) and it said something about that. Good luck hope this helped.
