Q: what does chest pain between the breasts mean?

I have chest pain between my breasts.  not needle sharp, sometimes lasting 2 or so minutes, will go away but sometimes not completly, then come back.  had a single episode last night, now again today, starting about 10 minutes ago.  Under the usual stress, Marraige, money, work.  I am fighting a cough, but when the pain occurs, I am not coughing.

Thanks,

Beth

Hi Beth,

 

I recommend you contact your physician for an evaluation.  Chest pain is never something to "play around" with.
