  • Have you been doing any lifting that you weren't doing the pains started? I had something that sounds the same, and it was due to the inflammation of the cartilage around my ribs. Ice packs and ibuprofen solved my issues.

  • Chest pains should not be ignored. My husband's cousin (who seemed to be in perfect health) dropped dead of a heart attack at 36.

  • GERD or asthma have been reasons why I've had chest pains in the past. EKGs were run and everything. Don't remember them feeling like squeezing pains though.
