I have a weird recurring pain on the left side of my chest that comes and goes. I have had a stress test, and had my heart checked several times. I also have high blood pressure and take blood pressure medicine.

But to tell the truth, I don't think that it's my heart. The weird thing is that it is in my breast (I'm a man) and when I hold it, it goes away.

It's not a constant thing, but as I said, it comes and goes. I also feel a little weakness in my left arm at the same time.

Do you think that it could be some kind of pinched nerve, or muscle problem?

  • Get an upper GI to see if you have a hiatal hernia I have the same thing and when i hold it in it stops hurting or bending over stops it too.. I hurt on the same exact side.. it also could be chostriocondritis which is when the muscles around your chest wall is inflammed and IBprofuen takes care of that but still check with your doctor :)

  • I have had a similar pain for about 4 years, off and on, sometimes sharp and short, sometimes dull and aching. I have no known physical problems and something tells me it it more of an esoteric problem i.e. stress, fear, anxiety, or possibly psychological in nature.

I'd see a chiropracter and find out of I had a rotated rib (in the back) putting pressure on a nerve.

  • Please do not listen to anything Shula or Acuann tell you. My sister just passed away because Shula and Acuann told her that her doctor was wrong and she did not have a serious condition. Acuann even told her to get acupuncture to get healed. These people are going to be investigated for practicing medicine without a license. Shula and Acuann are specifically wanted in connection with my sisters homocide. Thats right homocide. If she would have listened to her doctor instead of these internet quacks she would still be here today. Rest assured I will do everything in my power to put these two behind bars and shut this website down for good.
