Mild sharp chest pain. What to do?
My boyfriend called me a few minutes ago from work and complained of having a mild sharp chest pain on the left side near his heart. He's been completely normal all day. No health issues, healthy, and fit. Where he works, they're usually lifting pallets and stuff, heavy things. He told me that he was fine when he got to work. He ate whataburger when he got there around 4 30, then went to clock in. After that, that's when he began to have that pain. It is very mild. He says that it doesn't bother him. It's just one of those annoying sharp pains that comes and goes occasionally. this is the first time he's has this. He's able to fully function, concentrate, and do everything else at his job normally. He has no symptoms of anything else. He says he's fine. Just whenever he takes a deep deep breath, he feels the pain. Otherwise he doesn't really pay attention to it.I told him to take some ibuprofen or Advil.Any concern here?Like I said, he's very healthy and fit. He just kind if worried me a little.

Why am I having chest pains?
You know those chest pains that feel like heart burn but its not and you can't take deep breathes because it hurts? Well I nearly constantly have them now,I have it as I type this When it first started I put it down to this bra I was wearing which was pretty tight so I switched bra. Now its constant and I'm worried but my mam thinks it might be down to stress because I have my leaving cert exams coming up and it might be a form of panic attacks which is what I would have thought unusual for me because up until now I've been pretty laid back I am a worrier but I never thought I could stress myself out so easily,I think its stress because I have this skin thing where my cheeks go red and skin sort of comes off and not even moisturizer helps. My mam gave me a few drops of this stuff that is supposed to help stress and make me more relaxed. But I don't understand..the chest pains are still here and I'm not even doing anything at all just well..relaxed. Its difficult to breathe it feels like I'm always having a heart attack minus the shooting pains up my arm. It hurts to breathe and I worry myself more about it. I will go to the doctor. So far I'm sticking with stress but could you think of any other possibilities,its just not like me I need help

Chest pain when i lift my arms? (quick question)?
Thank you for answering, i appreciate it. I breathe fine, it isn't my heart that hurts but my actual chest area between my breasts. This morning when i lifted off my shirt to change, i got a sharp, heavy chest pain that lasted about 40 seconds, and then went away. Just now i went to go tie my hair in a pony tail and head to bed but i got that pain again when i lifted my arms. I can't afford the doctors right now and i don't think it's too serious, any ideas what could be wrong?
