Ok so I KNOW none of us are doctors lol, but I still have a question. Go ahead and tell me to go to my non-existant doc lol, but please also give your advice :) My chest has been killing me. I wonder if it's my heart,because it's only on the left side where I figure my heart is. But it could also be my lung because I smoke (nasty habit, trying to quit) but why wouldn't both lungs hurt? It's like a vice is slowly squeezing it (heart lung whatever) and just constant pressure. I'm not very old (25) so I don't think it's a heart attack lol, not overweight (bmi's a bit high but not too bad.) ok any mammas have any ideas? thanks in advance for NOT bashing for my smoking (hint hint)Answer Question

Does it hurt more when you breath in and does it radiate towards your back?
Just a thought that it could be pleurisy (fluid). Very common and can cause pressure/pain in the chest or even in the lungs.
Otherwise, if it continues to bother you or you get worse then I would seek medical treatment at the ER. (pay later)
