Hi, Ive been having these pains for months now, i suffer from anxiety and GP puts it down to muscle pain and yes my chest muscles do go tight, however this pain can be agonising and painkillers dont have any effect, ive had chest xray ecg and bloods which were ok, should i push for more? its really affecting my life sad

Have gall stones been ruled out?

do they get worse when you breathe deeply in and out? I get pains like that sometimes, and they go if i take a really massive sharp breath in, which hurts but then the pain totally goes. No idea what causes it but have had these since puberty.

no but was told at the hospital that it dosen't typically present as gallstones, no geraldine, I'm pretty sure its the anxiety casuing it
