Hello, welcome to the site! My name is Dr Brims and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Are currently on any medication?
When did the pain start?
About 2 years ago
What side of your chest is the pain on?
The pain is is just below my nipple on the left side of my chest. Doesnt feel like a pulled muscle but more like a stabbing pain.
Okay, this may be due to muscle spasms
I tried meds for that and didnt work.
I drive trucks and dot regulations wont allow me to take that medicine
What medication did you try for muscle spasms?
That im not sure.
Okay, if your tests have been negative so far , it may be muscle spasms or a bone cyst
What is a bone cyst? And it cant be cancer right? Is there anything over the counter that I can take to help out
It is a an area of decreased density within the bone
Sometimes anti-inflammatory drugs like motrin or aleve are helpful for bone cysts
Is that bad? I have four kids and wanna be adound till im old and grey. Im o ly 24 .
It is not dangerous
Okay. Ill try those keds and see if it helps. Would you prefeer a ct scan or just the over the counter drugs
I think trying drugs is worthwhile before the CT scan
Okay. Thanks for your help
You're quite welcome
