My Chest Really Hurts!! Help!!

Yesterday I woke up with pain under my left breast, that radiated to my lower back.. FF .. Doctor said I was having muscle spasms. I had 5 episodes yesterday lasting about 20 minutes to an hour each and the 'spasms' came irregularily. NOW they are just under the breast and have lasted 2 hrs now.. It's very painful but I dont think my doctor is right.. Any other suggestions? OUCH another one!!

  • Actually it probably is muscle spasms. You have muscle between the ribs, and it only takes one night of sleeping wrong for them to flare up.

  • He has me on muscle relaxers that are not working.

  • He won't LET you go? Then call someone else if you can't drive yourself. I'm assuming if you're married, you're a big girl who can make her own medical decisions. I would go anyway.

  • muscle relaxants aren't for pain and need to be taken consistantly. You also need to alternate heat and ice
