My Pain In The Chest Is Mild..but It Runs Around My Chest!it Started In The Center And Then Moved To The Left Side Then Top Of The Stomach And Then Move Up The Chest And Back To The Left Side

I have mild pain in my chest but it runs around my chest. It started in the center and then moved to the left side, then to the top of my stomach, then up my chest and back to the left side. What could be causing this?

Answer

Hi Mike,

Here's a link to information on heart attack symptoms. Any time you have chest pain, you should immediately see a doctor, even if it means going to an ER. All heart attacks don't look like the ones you see on television with the sudden, sharp pain. Some can start "quietly" but the damage to the muscle is being done. It could be something as simple as a muscle strain or costochondritis, but it could be more serious. It's best to get it checked out.
