Those were my thoughts too. What I've heard before is largely "if you're having heart trouble, you'll know about
it". If this wasn't so persistent even now I'd put it down to indigestion, but it's been on and off for the best part of a week. The whole of my torsode feels a bit uncomfortable one way or another (it's not just my chest!) and whilst driving back from work a second ago someone I had someone nearly crash into me and I could feel what seemed to be a sudden burst of acid in my stomach, which seems to suggest something like GERD. My chest feels a little tight now, but it's not the sort of thing I'd notice that much if I wasn't thinking about
it - I'd just put it down to indigestion.
The feeling in the upper left part of my chest is still there and I can immagine it would be very similar to Bronchitus (having had minor chest infections in the past). It feels a little bit like a scratch and seems to be more noticable if I cough or take a sudden breath. Occasional seems to transfer to my armpit, but it's not as if the pain radiates there, just that it fades away in one place and then turns up seperately in another.
Will talk to my doctor, but unfortunately I live in a third world country (well, england...) with a state funded health service that's very reluctant to spend any money investigating people :) with a slight history of anxiety I think I'll be told to go away and "come back if it get's any worse"
Of course, I'm assuming that it's not anxiety itself and that's already 'given' me two brain tumors, MS and HIV so I presume it can do all sorts of things to your chest too. The first thing I learned on here was not to underestimate what your mind can do to your body. I had twinges all over my body when my anxiety was really bad a few weeks back. Just had one in my right elbow (I'm sure that's in the mind) and it's quite similar to what's going on in my chest, so who knows.
