I get various types of chest pain...and anything that I cannot relate to gas or muscle/nerve pain, I call the doctor.
So, call the doctor and get in to have an x-ray done to get the all clear.
I've had a collapsed lung....so, I know extreme chest pain, but I've never had pneumonia or pleurisy...both of which can cause pain that to me would be out of the ordinary.
Chest pain can also be from gallbladder or liver...so you best deal with it quickly.
Yes, there are conditions that apparently are UC/mesalamine/pred related, so finding the reason will definitely ease your mind from guessing.
Please let us know what's going on...
