Heart?

Intense stabbing pain behind +/- 4th rib on left hand side (above breast)(female aged 41). Have heard it could be reflux from stress or is it heart? It comes and goes.

Hi Cal

From your description I am sure that the pain you are experiencing on the left side of your chest is neither due to reflux nor to a heart condition. It is almost certainly musculoskeletal pain. If you are concerned, please go and see your own doctor about it, but it is highly unlikely to be due to your heart.

Best wishes, JT
