Pain in upper chest

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi ladies,

Have any of you had this pain in your upper chest right below the clavicle in the area that leads to your breasts? I was bending over while seated at the edge of my bed trying to put on my panty hose and when I sat up right I got this weird sticking stabbing feeling in that area. Now a day later I feel sore right there. Anyone else get pains in that area?

    hi - Sounds to me like acid reflux - i have had that before & it landed me in Urgent Care twice - you might want to check it out to be safe, but in the meantime try a shot of apple cider vinegar with water & see if you get relief - during this time, our imbalance in hormones really wrecks havoc on digestive system -

      Thanks Gillian, it does seem to be related to my acid reflux. I think I have had that pain before in that area. It didn't hit me until I bent over and got back up quickly. I need to get some more Gaviscon. It does help a lot with the flare ups.

    Like the other ladies said, could be acid reflux, I have a small hiatas hernia and in menopause the extra reflux etc that happens caused me to have gastitis (inflammed stomach lining) and inflammation in this area can cause mild to severe pain and it can be quite worrying! I had an endoscopy for peace of mind, the doctors will normally prescribe ppi, s which reduce stomach acid to help healing x
