I've been having this weird chest pain and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. It's going to be a little while for me to be re-registered with the GP, so I'm trying to get some answers in the mean time.
It's cropped up occassionally, with with either several weeks or months between times. It always radiates from the same spot, just under my boob, and I can feel a particularly sore spot, not sure whether it's on my rib or on the muscle on the rib, but when I touch this area it's particularly bad.
It hurts especially when I am lying down or sitting, or try to move suddenly, and reaches it's peak when I breath in. Most of the time it's painful but bearable, and lasts a few hours, with just one of the episodes causing any real distress.
My mum seems to think it could just be a stitch or indigestion, or possibly some trapped wind. I'm not so sure and I'm worried, but then I don't want to bother the doctor if it's not a big deal.
Any one have any ideas?
