    I am worried your symptons may be connected with your heart. Don't hesitate to call an ambulance. The medics will give you an ECG immediately, either indoors or in the ambulance. They will then know by the results whether or not you have to go to the hospital. Acid reflux and stroke symptons are very similar, so be on the safe side. The ambulance people know their job and will take you to hospital if it's needed or tell you if you are well enough to stay at home. I was in this position a few years ago and after a week of pain as you are describing, my son called an ambulance and I had had a TIA (mini-stroke) followed by a bigger one.

      Thankyou for your sound advice perhaps I didn't describe it very well, it's in the breast tissue not in the actual chest, the muscle area and under arm I think it's a nerve or something, maybe costochondritis I just wondered, seems everytime you go to doctors now they say it's a virus whatever you go with , thankyou though fir your kind reply x

      Hi, I was diagnosed last February with gastritis. I too have aches in my chest, just under where my bra fits. I have asked about it being costochonditis but doc said not. I wake up with it, I worries me. But has gone on for such a long time. It's not getting worse but no better either. Sometimes I think I might sleep funny, wish I knew what it was. I'm not taking any meds a moment as the side effects are dreadful. I hope you get sorted soon, and have more luck with the docs than I have. X
