Hello, i posted about chest pain recently as in (cardiac type pain).
Cardiac tests normal :-)
Now im posting on chest (muscle pain) not related to the heart.
I get this occasionly but lateley it been a little more intense. I feels at times like a mild to moderated soreness like after a chest workout. I t happens on both or either side of the chest.
The last few times it was more acute, sudden, it felt like a stabbing pain the muscle or another experience was like cramping or spasming. This happened a few times in the last few weeks and today on the left chest pec muscle.
It typically lasts several seconds then goes away.
Chest muslce pain,cramping, soreness.

hey JC

i wanted to let u knw i started the same way first i was told i had costochondritis and that i need to rest so i did that i was out of work for 2 weeks. that didnt help when i went back to work i still felt the pain and had a hard time getting thru the day. i went to dr. after dr. and had test after test done to find out why i was still in pain. i must have changed my dr. at least 15-20 times in 6yrs and no one could tell me wat was wrong, so i finally got an internal medicine dr. and after 6-7yrs of not stop pain found out i have fibromyalgia, im grateful for this dr i can now to more things during the day. i take 3 different meds 2-3x a day and it seems to b helpin so far im only 27yrs old and was really upset i started to think the worst when i couldnt figure out wat was wrong.

so wat im trying to say is get an internal medicine dr and see wat they say u dnt want to b sent on a run around for yrs b4 u find out wats up. good luck to u.

Weird, I was just writing about this on another thread. I had the same thing as the first symptom of fibromyalgia when I started with this, 30 years ago. I had the heart work up done too, I was young, early 20's, but still, ya can't be too careful. Anyway it wasn't my heart, it was muscular pain. Now they call it costochondritis. I still get it sometimes and I find a heating pad does wonders for the pain, as well as rest, of course.

I just saw a cario Dr. myelf because my regular Dr. wanted me to see one. I was having some sob and chest discomfort when my blood got to thick. I have a clottting disorder. Anyways my cardio Dr. says it woud be slim chance that I would have any cardiac problems. I decided at the last minute to not go through expensive testing. I just feel they would be normal. My symptoms are gone and my blood is thinner. I hope my Dr's understand. I think some of the pain is all fibro in the chest wall muscles.

I had an ongoing sharp chest pain that was so bad it was difficult for me to breathe.

I went to a GP, he did a heart test, didn't find anything wrong then put me on an inhaler. Even though I have asthma, inhalers have never done anything for me except cause jitters.

I went to my chiropractor, he did an adjustment on one of my ribs, said it was out of alignment, and the pain immediately went away and I could breathe easier. I know just how my rib went out of alignment. I used my 3 lb weights in a new exercise bringing them across my chest. The pain began right after doing that exercise for the first time. I didn't do it again.

Good luck to you.

I am on a regiment of different supplements, I eat very nutritiously, and ever since my injury years ago I have been doing prescribed stretches x2 daily.

since ive already had a major heart study done im leaning towards FMS and GERD possibly.
Im getting a 24 hour holter monitor done soon also because i get palpitations at times. Im sure that will be normal too but just to be safe.
Im also thinking maybe a chiropractor would be a good idea.
thanks all :-)
