I have had severe chest pains for a week now. I would describe them as feeling like someone stabbing me in my chest. Most of the time it's on my right side above my breast. It does however move to the left side. Nothing makes it better except taking a benadryl and going to sleep. Certain laying positions do make it worse. I have been to the dr iv had xrays, ekg and blood work done and all came back good.

    sounds like me. hospital told me it might be musculoskeletal chest pain n take pain killers But no proper diagnosis. I had same tests and a ct scan. I'm on day 17 of it now sad it's been up and down and subsided a little then gone back to same as day 1. I'm 30 fit healthy dance teacher. I'm going to book a appointment with my gparents Monday as it's riduculpus. What did they say to you?

      I was in A&E last night with the same pain and they said to be is musculoskeletal and they have given me co codamol to take

      I had ECG, bloods and chest X-ray and all fine, infact the doctor said my heart is pristine!!

      I'm hoping the relief that it's nothing serious helps ease the pain and anxiety

      They didn't give me anything said take a paracetamol if need rolleyes doesn't touch the pain. Ibruprofen helps but only temporarily. It's not right to feel these aches stabs all over I don't feel I can act normal in my life. Nearly 3 weeks enough is enough I need answers n a remedy. I can't believe how they just send ppl away :-(
