  • If it goes away it probably isn't serious but if it doesn't go away you should go to the ER asap as you could have blod clots.

  • Your heart is on the left. Get up and walk around to see if it moves around. Could actually be gas and very painful. BUT always seek medical attention and not take the advice of cafemommers :)

  • I have kind of the same thing sometimes. Feels kind of like when you were a kid and would get a "stitch" in your side after running the mile.

  • This has been going on with me as well. I have been tested up the wazoo with this. They determined that I am having artial spasms and have a slightly enlarged aorta. ALSO one thing I did not know and it is useful information. You can have an esophogas spasms and it feels like chest pains. It is possible this could be the culprit. If you have tums at home I reccomend taking some and if the pain doesn't go away in a little bit or returns I would go see a doc. Women have different symptoms than men when it comes to chest pain and the heart or when it comes to esophogas spasms and GERD...SO it never huitrts to be safe than sorry...Good luck!
