For years I've suffered with left breast pain, recently got diagnosed with costochondritis and was wondering if anyone has actually had breast pain connected to this, the pain comes from behind my breast it hurts to push into the ribs but also the pain radiates through my boob and it can hurt to apply pressure!

      yes, Milliemarie, moi aussie, however the pain followed the cardiac route for me, down my left arm, up the side of my face with referred pain to the tip of my shoulder blade.  I was in agony for 4 years until a wise Doc diagnosed it and commenced me on 'noratryptline' and I haven't looked back.  However, the left side of my body i.e. left arm, leg and left side of my face began to wither. by the time the diagnosis was made the left side of my body looked 5-10 years older than the right.  It's improving now with some exercises.  it's horrible pain.  I felt I was having a 'continous' heart attack and no-body would listen to me.

    Yes...I get pain in my left boob all the time. It comes and goes. It might last one day or for a few hours. I use to worry, however mammograms confirms nothing is there so I quit worrying. It comes as a sharp intermittent pain.

    Hello! I've been getting this a little bit here and there, but I was wondering if you also ever get like "bubbly" feeling under ur breast. Feels like bubbles coming up or a spasm. Super hard for me to explain but it also feels like it's near the heart. I've been getting this a lot for the longest time and all my test come back just fine. It's such an uncomfortable feeling and completely freaks me out!

I get pain In my shoulder blade a lot when breathing in too x

      Hi Jade.

      Go to your Doc. ask for ''Nortryptline'' (it's a nerve pain medication).  As far as I know, it's used to be used  a mild anti depressant but they found out that it's works on nerve ending as an anti-inflammatory pain with pain relief effects. I would urge you to have it treated cos it just gets worse and once the nerve supply to an area is interrupted, so is the blood supply and that part slowly ''withers'' ........I am the evidence for that. my left arm is half the size of the right one and the left side od my face looks 5 years older than the right side coz for 4 years I was screaming with the pain that started in the cartilage and worked it's way up to my face (Trigeminal pain 24/7). When I  moved house and a wise young Doc. diagnosed it on the spot. I'm now pain free, unless I over use the parts affected.

      all good luck with it.
