Strange chest pain...
I keep getting a sharp, "stabbing" pain in the left side of my chest... I don't think it's actually in the heart, but in the area directly above it, a little bit above the nipple.

I also feel kind of... flushed.

I don't know what the problem could be, but it doesn't feel too nice.

 Quoting: D. Bunker


Not really "pain"... but a little discomfort perhaps on the backside of my left bicep. It comes and goes in waves... kind of co-occurring with the "stabbing" pain.

Could it simply be indigestion or heart burn?

 Quoting: D. Bunker


No, I don't think so... I don't have gas or anything, nor do I have heartburn (I tend to get acid reflux from time to time, so I know what it feels like).

But it doesn't feel serious enough to be a heart attack, of course.

...burning sensation in my ears and around my neck, though.

I'm trying not to bug out too much about it. I used to have panic attacks when I was young, so I'm trying to keep a cool head about it.

Re: Strange chest pain...
Odd that you ask this because I woke up feeling the same. Not so much in the arm, perhaps more around the shoulder area, but certainly above the left nipple area like a stabbing ache.

I'm putting it down to strain atm. I've changed a few things in how I do my work and wonder if i'm using muscles i'm not used to.

Re: Strange chest pain...
I used to get that when I studied.

I was not getting enough oxygen.

After 5 to 10 deep breathes, it went away.

If it is the problem, get outside if you can and walk a little.

Yeah, I've got insurance.

I'm trying to hold out. If it turns out to be something small later on, I'll regret jumping the gun and calling 911.

If it is gas, drink a large glass of water. Take a menthol cough drop it will help you burp.

But above all, see a doctor.

If you hold out it might be too late but take a asprin right now, it could save your life.

Yes, go to a hospital. Better safe than sorry. Oh and if you start to sweat, especially on your face, then call 911 pronto. That's a heart attack. Even at age 24.
