Been having excruciating chest pain. Mainly left hand side, sometimes above breast and in shoulder, sometimes under breast and also middle of my chest (sternum area). It is normally a very sharp stabbing pain but sometimes a constant ache accompanys this.I took ibruprofen for a few days, had no luck relieving it. Went to a GP who listening to my chest and said it was completely clear (as she suspected pluerisy from my symptoms). Said it would be a pulled / torn muscle , I also had lots of knots and it would go in a couple of days and to take ibruprofen. This was on the Wednesday. It got to Saturday and my pain wasn't going and was getting much worse to the point of me sobbing , in too much pain to lie down; sit down or stand up. Decided to take codeine // ibruprofen tablets. Took these for 3 days. These did not relieve symptoms.
Have also been to a Chiropractor and this did not help.
It's been over a week now of constant pain and now the pain is spreading to the right side of my chest aswell.
Anyone else have bad chest pain with a clear chest? I'm struggling to breathe because the pain is so bad when I breathe in.
Any advice welcome.
