Q: What causes needle like pain in breast?

I have been geting on my left breast symptoms like needles. it feels like someone puts a needle in my breast and it takes my breath away for a moment. I was diagnosed with heart disease and the dr. said the upper heart chambers are inflamed. Would that cause needle pains?

Hi Margie,


It is possible the pain you are experiencing is linked to your heart condition.  I recommend contacting your physician to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.


All the best,
