Hi random question, I've recently started getting this pain under my left breast near the ribs. It's a sharp pain and happens when I take a deep breath? Has anyone ever experienced this I need to make an appointment but just curious to see if anyone has experienced this personally. It's quite bothersome and I worry when it happens last for seconds but still.

Yup. I live with this everyday. And sometimes the rib pain is in my back. That spot you described is a sharp pain and the sensation is right above the heart .When I breathe deep or sometimes lean over a certain way it hits me. I've had xrays, been to the cardiologist for echocardiogram and stress test and the emergency room for more x rays. It's what initially triggered my panic attacks 7 months ago. No one in the medical field can tell me what it is so they chalk it up to anxiety or maybe costochondritis. The only thing I can do is take some ibuprofen when it gets worse and try to eliminate my stress. I've discovered stress makes it worse. I go to the chiropractor once per week for back adjustments and does help. I also started working out again with light dumbbells. I find that a hard chest day or pushups can aggravate it. Best wishes to you and your healing. You're not alone.
Thank you for the reply, I feel like this has been going on at least a year or so now. I definitely need to make an appointment to ease my mind because I automatically think something's wrong with my heart. When it happens it's very scary it lady seconds but I think it would scare anyone honestly if they experienced it. I also noticed when I bend over it starts up or a a certain way I turn aggravates it.
