It could be indigestion, sounds bizarre but it can be so painful that some people think they are having a heart attack. However, it can also be a sign of a blood clot (don't like to panic you at all!!) If you rang me as a midwife in hospital I would advise taking some gaviscon (or similar) and coming to see me in triage (or whatever your version is) so that I could exclude a pulmonary embolism (rare but very serious and more common in pregnancy). So that's my professional advice. Good luck
Ok. Answer these for me. 1) where exactly is the pain? 2) you say it's sharp. What else? Is it a stabbing sharp pain or just sharp? 3) does it hurt more when you move or lie down? 4) does the pain radiate anywhere else? Ie down arms, in your neck, in your tummy? 5) is it constant or intermittent? 6) is if brought on by anything in particular? 7) have you had a cough or cold recently? 8) is it making you short of breath?
It's almost like someone has a band around my chest and pulling it tight It comes and goes and not got it anywhere else No cold No shortness of breath although it does catch ur breath as its quite sharp Taken pain killers for it as I'm not getting it all the time but very often Got the doctors today so will see what they say
