Pain in chest
I'm now six months pregnant and about two months ago I started getting a pain on my right side direclty under my rib cage, directly under breast. At first I thought it may be that my bra's were too small, so I started wearing a bigger size. This did not help. The pain has increased and I get it more frequently now. I told my gynae about it last week, and he said he isn't sure what could be causing it. I use a heated pad at night to try and minimise the pain and it does a little but it doesnt go away. I don't think this pain is related to my pregnancy. Please can you suggest what you think this could be?

I'm afraid I cannot suggest anything without examining you. The things to check would be related to your heart and lungs. I presume that your doctor has checked these.
