Hi all,
    Ok as many of you know my panic is all heart related issues so surprise! Here's another! Well the good news is I didnt react to it. No panic just concern on a rational level...well for me anyway! Ok, was on the phone this afternoon and all of a sudden it felt like a muscle spasm. It was on my left side near pec muscle area. Was there for aquick moment then gone no other symptoms. Has anyone ever had one? I have been lifting ALOT at work so not sure if it was heart or pec muscle. Can your heart spasm? Anyway thanks for all the suppor smilewinkgrin !

I get all types of muscle spams when I lift to much. So yes it is possible. If your not used to lifting or lifted something wrong it can happen.

I actually have meds to help with it. But They were given to me for my TMJ because it causes chest,neck,back,head muscle spasms as well.

Probably nothing to worry about. If it becomes painful and bother some or just plain bother some go see the doc! But a nice warm soak in the tub with some epsom salts or bath salts made with epsom salts might help ease some of that muscle tension.

Was it a sharp, stabbing pain? I get those every once in awhile. They start in my diaphram area and will shoot up into the back of my throat. Scares the heck out of me. I was told it's anxiety. Congrats on not reacting to it! That is an accomplishment!
