    I have pain in my left side, chest, breast, armpit and under the breast. It's a burning, aching pain, which radiates into my shoulder, arm and midchest/back. I get short of breath and sweaty at times.

    All of these are heart attack symptoms.  If you are experiencing this pain right now when you read this reply, please call your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room.  If the pain has subsided, call your doctor and arrange for an appointment to get checked out.  I hope that you get good news, but please do not wait.  It is better to see the doctor and find out there is nothing serious, than to miss treatment for heart problems.

      Thank goodness your heart is OK.  Now you have more time to investigate what might be causing your pain.  What did the cardiologist think?  The next step is a breast specialist and breast imaging tests if you haven't had them already.  I hope you soon find an answer to what is causing your pain and that it is easily treated.

      Erika, this could be from a number of sources, the least likely of which is probably breast cancer. As you read above, please do rule out any cardiac issues, since this is happening on your left side. In the meantime, our post on breast pain might prove helpful as you try to nail down the source of your discomfort: http://www.healthcentral.com/breast-cancer/c/78/63099/breasts-breast Good luck - PJH READ MORE

      Hi - since this thread started awhile ago, you might try clicking on MzD's name, in blue, to send her a private message; she might not be checking here anymore. I hope you've discussed this pain with your regular doctor; it's not a heart issue, and doesn't sound like any typical breast cancer symptoms, but you still want to get to the bottom of it, see what's causing it and if there's anything you can do to get more comfortable. Good luck - hope you feel better soon. PJH
