I Am Getting Tightness Around The Left Side Of My Chest Approximately Below My Left Breast.

Answer

Hi Tom:

Whenever there is a pain, especially new pain, in the chest area it is recommended to be evaluated by a physician. It needs to be determined if what you are experiencing something related to your heart or something less critical. Below is a link reviewing common heart attack symptoms. There are many causes of pain bu you would be better directed on what is causing this if you are evaluated. I've also listed a link that is a Symptom Checker tool that may help direct you.

Take care,
