    What does it mean if I have pinpoint pain in my chest

    I have very localized pinpoint pain in my chest.   It happens once or twice a month.  There is no identifiying time when it happens (sitting, standing, walking resting) or when it happens (morning, noon or night).  It will last a while, maybe an hour or so.  I will start having the pain and it will occur every couple of minutes.  It feels like someone snapped a rubber band on the inside of my chest.   It's very fast and and significant pain.  It's not a terrible pain but at times it is fairly intense.


    I am a female, 50 years old.   I live in Lincoln, NE.  There is no history of heart disease in my family, except one of my paternal aunts has a heart attack.

    You haven't said anything about what your doctor or cardiologist says about it, after examination. If you are cleared, you should ask around for a good chiropractor, and consult him/her. One thing that confounds medical science about chiropractors is that the treatment often must be part of the diagnosis. In other words, a person with symptoms, but no identifiable problem should be automatically sent to a chiropractor for a 2 week trial, and see. Many easy problems that were "waiting" for a chiropractor will almost always give a significant response within that time period. Another problem in communication is the follow-up, which may be a few months, and some people may need to return on occasion when those structural imbalances, along with their muscle-memory reactive-defenses, reach a peak again.
