Chest pains
My boyfriend says he's experiencing peircing pains
just below the breast, on the left hand side, he thinks it could be something with his heart. Do u perhaps know what it could be?
Could it be his diet or lack of excrecise? Or could it be a result of stress? Or maybe a combination of the 3?

Hallo Zorba
He may need an ECG and X/ray of the chest to exclude lung and heart problems. Sometimes it is only a nerve pinching or a pulled muscle.
