So last week, about Wednesday, I started having this chest pain on my left side, with mild upper back pain on my left. At the same time, I felt shortness of breath (not heavy) and sort of nauseaus. It became very bad on thursday, as the pain in the chest was so bad, that I felt like somebody was sitting on my chest, with such pressure. It was like I was having an anxiety attack, but I know that wasnt it since i felt very calm mentally. I took a Xanax and ibuprofen, which relaxed me a bit and I was able to go to sleep.
On Friday, I went to the Dr. and they did an EKG. She said nothing seemed abnormal, and told me to try to relax and take some Ibuprofen as it is anti-inflammatory. I came home and relaxed all weekend, and seemed to be getting better.
Then this morning, I woke up with the same pain on the right side of my chest and back. Like the pain simply moved from one side to the other. its also been sore when I touch my chest all this time.
Its really freaking me out, since I dont have insurance, and dont know if this is something serious. Could somebody tell me what they think???

I am no doctor, but i think if you can touch the pain, then it is probably not your heart. It is probably muscular pain of some kind.
