Mild pain in left chest

Sometimes I get a mild pain only in the left side of the chest. This occurs very less frequently and at no specific time. It usually lasts for 15 minutes and goes away immediately if I do deep breathing for a minute.

Hi. I think you are getting muscle cramps. Any heart related issue seems to be less likely. But still if you are worried and want to convincingly rule out a heart problem, you can get an ECG, 2D echo and if necessary a treadmill test done. But, as I always suggest, show personally to a qualified cardiologist, get properly examined and then discuss about the option of these tests with him. But, as I said, a heart related pain seems to be less likely. Dr Chandrashekhar Munjewar www.thefitheart.in

Hi. What you have described is most likely a muscular pain. Probably you are straining your chest muscles too much. If you go to gym, or are doing pushups and weight training, then be careful.
