    Hi Sandra

    yes, I'm having the same pain now. I think it has to do with me drinking too much coffeešŸ˜£ when I went away on vacation, I had no coffee for 2 weeks and I felt amazing, since I came back, I drink to cups a day, and that's when I notice my anxiety came back, the pain in my left breast and heart too, it feels,like something is inside

    time to decafinate my self for a bit and see if this pain will go away

    Hi Sandra,

    I get that pain as well, and it does make anxiety worse, unfortunately. Sometimes I unconsciously have that side tensed up, and the muscles are really tight.

    You can try pushing around in the chest and armpit area, even light squeezing, to see if there's some soreness & tightness. After that, try it on the right side and see if there's a difference. A massage, heating pad, shower, bath, etc will help. Tend to the neck muscles as well, because they play a big part in the tension.

    Another reason I get that pain is if I'm gassy, or backed up. It's an on/off pain that can be dull or like a poking feeling, sometimes even a stabbing feeling. The colon comes up higher on the left side of the body, so you feel more there.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Hello, I thought at one point I was having a heart attack and it turned out I had... Costochondritis or Tietze's syndrome which is a common cause of rib cage pain.

    It is an inflammation of the cartilage in the rib cage. It usually occurs in the cartilage that joins the upper ribs to the sternum, an area called the costosternal joint... It did go away but was very worrying. Hope this helps. It is pronounced tetzays.
