Welcome to healingwell misspiggy. By the way, cute name.

To answer your question...when it comes to your chest, it could be a number of things. Some things may be serious, others may not be. Do you have a family doctor whom you could make an appointment with??? If so, i would suggest doing that. You could never be too careful.

You didn't give a whole lot of detail as to how old you are...if you have any medical issues...when the pain happens...how long have you had it...do you have a history of heart disease with you or on your family...things like that which may have made answering this question a bit easier.

No one can give you a real answer...but a suggestion I have is reading up on costrachondritis. Again, I also suggest meeting with a doctor to see what's up.  Although if I was forced to give an opinion, it does sound a lot like costrachondritis.

At any rate, I welcome you to healingwell, and I look forward to seeing what you find out. Wishing you all the best!
