Hi--are you saying the pain is in your chest or more in your back? Have you ever had this before? Is it constant and does it hurt to take a deep breath?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question.

This is likely related to the GI tract.

Commonly acid reflux or gastritis can cause this.

Have you ever had stomach problems?

Disappointed that you have asked two quesation but to answer them the system is requesting a further payment of NZD55.00


 


The answers you require are:


 


1st time, more in my back & no it does not hurt to take a deep breath.


 


Taking it easy, when I first noticed the pain it was in the shower this morning and had to steady myself, the pain is constant.

I recommend you see a doctor as soon as you can

you need some blood work to make sure it isn't your pancreas or that you are losing blood

I would go in tonight if you can
