Chest pain onleft side

HI, i am experiencing some pain on my left chest for some weeks now. The pain lasts hardly for 10 seconds. It comes especially while inhaling. I had such pain during childhood too but it had subsided and now has resurfaced. Can it be heart related?

Hi, it could be due to spasm of intercostal muscles. However, cardiac causes should also be ruled out. Kindly consult Physician...
