Customer Question

for 4/5 hours now, I've been having mild chest pain on the right upper side of my chest. it isn't constant but I always get a twinge of pain in the exact same spot whenever I swallow. i thought it was gas pain at first as i get that a lot but it doesn't last this long and doesn't happen when I swallow. Im not a stranger to heartburn, indigestion and things like that. but this pain is kinda new, with it lasting so long. it feels like the pain you get when you've ate something too quick and you get that weird strange chest pain for a short period of time. im 17. what could this be and can I make it go away somehow?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
