Hello,

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

When did the pain start?

Do you have any other symptom?

Do you have any past illness?

How old are you? Male or female?

What does aggravate or relieve the pain?

Did you consult doctor?

Did you have any test or medicine?

How frequently do you feel it?

At exactly which point of chest?

Do you have cough? shortness of breath?

Does it last for seconds only?

Do you feel any pain on pressure?

How old are you?

Thank you for the information.

The pain in this location can be due to different factors.

It can be due to muscle spasm.

Costochondritis of the rib can cause it.

Those can be worse on turning sides or movement.

Inflammation or infection of lung or its covering pleura can cause pain which can increase on breathing but they usually are associated with cough, shortness of breath etc.

Other possibilities like reflux, esophageal spasm can cause pain.

At your age heart issues are less common but heart pain like angina needs to be ruled out.

I would suggest to take an examination by doctor as the pain is continuing.

You can take tylenol.

This would help in musculoskeletal pain.

EKG, chest X ray, blood tests can be required, if the doctors feel so.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
