I HAVE A HEAVY FEELING ABOVE LEFT BREAST, SOMETIMES SQUEEZING

Resolved Question:

I HAVE A HEAVY FEELING ABOVE LEFT BREAST, SOMETIMES SQUEEZING IN CHARACTER. I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING THIS FOR ABOUT FOUR WEEKS AND HAVE HAD 2 ECGs, A BLOOD TEST TO CHECK FOR CARDIAC DAMAGE AND A CHEST X RAY WHICH WERE ALL NORMAL. I HAD A MAMMAGRAM TWELVE AND A -HALF MONTHS AGO WHICH WAS ALSO CLEAR WITH A FULL BREAST EXAMINATION. NO LUMPS ARE PALPABLE IN THE BREAST TISSUE.

Hello
You need a stress test to rule out heart problems.
In women in particular, an EKG can be a false negative for angina.
Isotope stress test or stress echo manditory unless your doctor can assure you this is just muscular pain.
If not, see a cardiologist; go back to the ER as needed.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
