Any docs/medical people about. Funny feeling in chest
Here are heart disease symptoms (it doesn't sound like you have it. Maybe you have pulled a muscle?):
A Heart Attack may cause some or all of these symptoms:
Pain, pressure, fullness, discomfort or squeezing in the center of the chest
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Stabbing chest pain
Radiating pain to shoulder(s), neck, back, arm(s) or jaw
Pounding heartbeats (palpitations) or feeling extra heartbeats
Upper abdominal pain
Nausea, vomiting or severe indigestion
Sweating for no apparent reason
Dizziness with weakness
Sudden extreme fatigue
Panic with feeling of impending doom
A note about women's milder symptoms - About a third of women experience no chest pain at all when having a heart attack and 71% of women report flu-like symptoms for two weeks to a month prior to having more acute chest discomfort or severe shortness of breath. These milder symptoms are under-reported to emergency room staff.
Have you had a cold/chest infection recently? I had a bout of pleurisy a while back and that made my chest and especially my shoulder sore. If you have an infection in your lung lining it can give you shoulder pain, my shoulder pain was very concentrated in one point IYSWIM. If it's this you'll prob. need antibiotics.
sounds like a tight chest due to stress.Stress does horrible things and hits you in your weakest spot. This might be your weak spot. Do you feel like stretching your arm and putting it over your head. I know it sounds daft but my ex had similar symptom with stress
if it goes at night and then comes back when you waken it is stress.
TRY NOT TO FOCUS YOUR MIND ON THE AREA OF DISCOMFORT.
Try not to think about it all. I was told everyone has a weak spot that tends to "hurt" when you are stressed. IT is very real to you.but it is only spasms and tension. If you know you are anxious try and find something to keep you busy and to take your mind off it
