Im a male age 60, and have been experiencing a pinching pain

Resolved Question:

I'm a male age 60, and have been experiencing a pinching pain every few hours under my right brest, below the nipple. I do experience acid reflux and just started prilosec OTC. I've checked my BP at 119/65 & 70bbm. After the pain I get the chills for a short while. What's up?

The pain be felt on the right side as well.

If you did not have any recent heart check up this should be checked out with a EKG, cardiac enzymes and stress test.

Another possibility is muscle sprain or nerve strain the affected area.

This can happen from heavy lifting, exertion or even from sleeping positions.

Nerve related pain can cause chill sensation.

Had Dr's visit Thurs and he put me on OTC.

The pain only happens for a few seconds.

But I will suggest you to get your heart checked out in the nearest urgent care or Emergency room since this is recurrent for several hours.
