Sharp pain in heart area

Posted by Doreen on August 13, 2002 at 00:26:35:

Within the past year I had experienced soreness in the heart area (directly behind the left rib cage right where my left breast starts to protrude). It got so bad one day I drove myself to the hospital and was admitted for several days of testing, only to leave with the diagnosis of MVP. Since then, the soreness is no longer there, however, I do get at least once a day, a severe sharp pain in the heart area that only lasts for a second. The doctor told me I will experience pain because of MVP. I just spent 2 hours reading your BB trying to learn more about MVP only to realize that MVP doesn't exist. Do you know what that sharp pain is called if it is not MVP? Any information/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Doreen

I heard that Cat's Claw helps angina. It helped a muscle
strain I had.

Now that you know about MVP, you need to learn about bracing and Costochondritis. Look in the archives.

but it has no symptoms, at least according to the archives on this site. Re-read them.

Hi, Doreen.

Your doc is conveniently blaming your symptoms on MVP when even HE knows that it has no symptoms. Time is money and he is more interested in money--in my opinion.

Listen to Lincoln and Jon. This has to be costochondritis.

Go to the glossary for any unfamiliar terms and then to the archives about bracing and about costo.

Let us know what you learn.
