20 year old female. I've had this problem for a few years, I'd say almost 10 years. My mother used to say it must be growing pains, but due to lack of other symptoms, I've never looked much into it.
It used to happen every several months. Now I've noticed it at least once a month but haven't been keeping proper track.
The pain is deep in my chest, so I'm unable to relieve it via physical touch. It's a slow, dull, aching and sometimes stabbing, throbbing pain that varies from moderate to severe and is always on the left side of my chest, right where my heart would be.
The attack lasts for no longer than a few minutes, and usually I have more than one episode of this a day. Then it goes away until next month, though rarely will happen again after a week or few days.
I haven't found anything online to explain this, as I don't have any other symptoms besides the pain and occasionally my heart beats harder and a little slower, so I was wondering if anyone could help shed some light on this?
