So that's where I get my chest pains and sometimes they're tender and other times they're stabbing. I'm a very bad breather and I carry a lot of stress in my upper body. I even notice when I'm breathing poorly that my breast muscles are tense. This is an unfortunate side effect of anxiety, but remember that it's only a side effect and nothing more. Try laying in your bed, close your eyes breath nice and slow and then feel your muscles relax. Try to imagine Gravity pulling your body down into the bed and scan your body from head to toe and loosen the muscles as your mind passes over that part of your body. Try to make them feel heavy. I think in this case you need to trust your doctors, but again, always check in with your GP if you think you need further attention.
Also, given the pregnancy, talk to your OB. They will be the doctor to take all of your symptoms the most seriously right now and you don't wanna mess around with chest pains during a pregnancy.
Hang in there and come talk if you need us!
