Need help identifying severe lower chest pain - urgent!?
My girlfriend started having really intense pains in her lower abdomen last night, and we are certain it is unrelated to cramps. She has had occasional lower chest pain from time to time for a long time as long as I have known her so around 2 years , but its never been as intense as this and she has assured me that she is fine since it usually subsides within a few minutes. She started having what she described as waves of intense pain, that would subside after a minute or so and return a few later. She said that it usually dulls down a lot when she sits up, and that lying down sometimes aggravates it. This morning when she woke up she told me that she felt sick to her stomach and like she would throw up. is there anyone who can help identify this, and if so, tell us how bad it is.

Im only 23 so I figured I was to young to be having heart complications but the longer I it goes on the more I wonderAm I making a big deal out of nothing or should I get it checked out?

Help! Serious chest pain - what is it?
I woke up in the middle of the night with serious discomfort in my chest. It also felt a little bit like something was lodged in my esophagus. I eventually managed to get back to sleep, and when I woke up this morning I felt fine. About half an hour after I'd woken up, the pain came back. That was about 8 hours ago now and the pain hasn't subsided. There have been times when it's a bit better or a bit worse...but it hasn't gone away completely. When it's 'better', my torso just feels achy, and when it's worse, it makes me feel physically sick in my stomach. The areas affected are my upper back just above my bra, my neck and shoulders are fine , sometimes my lower back though I'm not sure if that's because I've tried to stretch out my upper back too much in an attempt to alleviate the pain and the centre and left side of my chest...and my stomach, when I feel sick Earlier this morning, it felt like my breathing was restricted a little bit it wasn't difficult or painful to breathe, and I didn't feel short of breathe particularly, it just felt harder than usual, and not quite right.I'm a 21 year old female, I'm perfectly healthy I have no history of illness, I go to the gym every day, I eat well, I have never smoked, etc. and the only medication I'm on is the same contraceptive pill which I have been taking for the last two or three years without any problems so I can't think where this pain has come from I worked my abdominals in the gym yesterday, and had a larger dinner than usual...I've read online that both strained pulled muscles and indigestion could cause chest pain...but neither of those options seemed overly likely to me.Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Severe Chest Pain... dangerous or nothing to worry about?
I have had severe chest pain since early March. Since then I have had symptoms of DVT sharp pains in both legs on calf and thigh and hamstrings and I have been nauseous on and off, dizzy at times, fatigued, and still with chest pain. The first spell of chest pain I had was in early march when I had severe chest pain and I lost feeling in my left arm. I went to the emergency room where my blood tests, ekg, and chest xray came back normal. Pain continued and I started getting anxiety attacks from it because 9 doctors all said I was just crazy. Then two doctors told me I had Tietze syndrome which is a swelling of the intercostal cartilage that can mimic the symptoms of a heart attack. This diagnosis was mid April I got a handle on the anxiety and after a cardiac stress test and test for any auto immune disease, I started to treat the tietze syndrome left university and went home for 3 weeks with acupuncture, rehabilitative lazer, and postural exercises.I took 1 week of 1200 mg of advil in the beginning of may.When I came back to university in mid may, I felt sincerely a lot better and for 3 days after my exams I felt perfectly fine for the first time in ages.Now the chest pain is back. it is a dull crushing pain. My sternum or ribs surrounding my sternum is raised higher on theleft than on the right always been like this and my heart rate feels abnormal. the pain is almost burning. also my lower rib on the left slips the very bottom rib anyone have any advice? Should I go back to the doctor, am I safe from cardiac problems. My health anxiety has returned because everything I've done to deal with this isn't helping....Thanks PLZ include ur qualifications Oh and by the wayI am 20 years old, 5'9'', 125 lbs, healthy and non smoker. I've been told by doctors 3 weeks ago that I was perfectly healthy but I have trouble believing them.

14 Year Old Girl Having Chest Pains?
I'm a 4 year old girl, and I get chest pains maybe three four times a week. I could be just sitting down reading at my desk then all of a sudden get this horrible pulling feeling in my chest. Usually, I have trouble breathing for about 3 seconds after that when I try, it feels like something stabbing my lung. i've told my mother about this.. every time it happens. But she normally just says, " Oh, you're going to be alright. Go lay down." I guess I'm just really worried. Would appreciate the help.Sorry my 1 key on my keyboard hardly works. I meant 14. And for the responses that say " You're getting boobs" .. I already have them. thanks for your responses though. Blegh. I keep forgetting things..... I have a 19 year old brother as well. he had the same chest pains, and was diagnosed with a hole in his heart when he was my age. I asked him what the pains felt like and what he describes felt like my pains.
