Hello everyone,

Off and on for the last couple of years I have had chest pain (mostly on the right). It seems to be right under my breast most times, sometimes close to the middle of my chest. It doesn't hurt more when I inhale. X-rays were always negative. A pulmonary doctor I work with suggested it might be constochondritis.
What does that feel like? What can I do for the pain?
Thanks
Tammie

Hi Tammie,

Painkillers, Nsaids, prednisolone are things that may help!

All these 3 things can also be taken together, but you should be seeking GP/Specialist advice to help you get through these episodes!

Take care,

So i would get checked out to be sure whats going on#
