I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum (probably not) but I was hoping if you guys could help me put anyways. I have this weird condition, not really sure what it is, it struck me so randomly. about a week ago I started having these weird sharp chest pains around the left area of my chest. Lying down flat on my back only made it worse so I had to lay on my stomach. Sometimes this pain extends to my shoulders and it become difficult to breathe deeply, though regular breathing is just fine. When I sit up or walk around I feel just fine, it's just lying down when the pain starts to kick in. I went to a free clinic to see what's up and the doctor didn't seem too concerned. She gave a name for it but I don't quite remember what it was, had something to do with gas, dunno what that has to do with anything. She said it would away with due time. Anyways the weird thing was when I went to the doctor it didn't hurt at all to lay down! I felt perfectly fine and usually when I lay down I can feel my chest move and if it's quiet enough you can hear it, but it didn't happen when I went to the doctor. For two days I was able to lay down just fine but again the pain came and then it subsided. The pain seems to be very random but it doesn't really hurt as much as it is annoying. When she gave me the exam or whatever she felt around to see if there was any pain. The only part that hurt was when she pressed on my lower right abdominal, which was weird because I never felt any pain there ever until she pressed down on it. It hurt the first few times but then it got less and less. Also when I bend down I kinda feel something weird moving on my left side of the back, something I've never felt before until this all started happening. Does anyone have any idea what in the world this must be?

this is so weird but i had almost the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago, i thought i was having a heart attack. i even had pain shooting up my left jaw. my dr. told me to go to the er. they ran tests and couldnt find anything really wrong. they decided mayb i had acid reflex (which i alredy knew. the dr also pushed around on my abdomen and found a very tender spot on my right side. he said based on that and the other tests. ho thought i probable had some kind of poblem with my gall baddler.he referred me back 2 my own dr. i havent gone yet because since ive been sleeping more upright snd taking prilosec i feel fine. mayb u have something similar, but i wouldnt dignose myself. i would go 2 my dr as soon as possible and c what he or she thinks the problem is, good luck

Thanks for the reply. Could it really possibly be the gall blader? It really did hurt when the doc applied pressure in the lower right abdomen. That can't be good. =X If this persists I may just have to see an actual doctor but I'm so hesitant to do so ( I really hate it). It's just so annoying I can't stand it, it definitely feels like there's something wrong inside of me and it's keeping me up at night.

Hello, that is a very specific kind of pain that I/ we might not have experienced, however I have had my fair share of dealing with doctors and little problems that turn into bigger medical issues. What you need to do is keep track of your symptoms. Write them down every day if you can. Since one doc said it may be gas, keep a journal of what you eat as well. once you compare the symptoms with what you had eaten beforehand, you may see a pattern or maybe able to rule it out.
Any rate you need to document what is happening. Make sure you list what makes it worse and what makes it feel better. This will help doctors help you, help you explain your symptoms more clearly and notice how/ when things change.
Take these notes to a new doctor. If you fear that it is more than gas, tell him/ her. Dont be shy about getting your needs met. They wont know it is serious unless you tell them. Furthermore, doctors are far from all knowing as we have been brought up to think. You often have to lead them down the path you want them on!

Good luck,
