    It wasn't like the gas pain that I get sometimes or like the pain associated with pleurisy or costochondritis, this was a really sharp, piercing type of pain deep in my left chest under the breast. The pain lasted a few seconds, then left, then came, then left, then came again and left. The whole episode wasn't over 5 minutes.

    I thought about what to do and then thought, after it was all over, that it was nothing, so did nothing.

    Have any of you experience this type of pain? It was so different than usual. Maybe we all have so much pain that we ignore really important pain. What do you think? Tonight I'm just extra tired and really shaky right now.

    I'd appreciate some thoughts on this one. Thanks.

    I have had this happen...but it is rare.
    But, when it does happen it is VERY painful and scary!

    I mentioned it to my doc and that is why she wants me to have the nuclear stress test. I have a lot of heart disease on both sides of my family.

    It could be the muscles in the chest...I have had a doc tell me this. But, if I were you I would have it checked out...just to be on safe side.

    Love.....MamaR
