I've been trying to ignore it but the anxiety from it has become too much and is very negatively affecting my life now. I'm a 27 male, overweight and have been getting strange pains for about 3 weeks now. Whenever I breathe in very deeply or stretch in a way that expands the chest, I get a sudden pain in the slightly left middle side of my chest, just under the breast. As well as ear aches and phlegm for a while. I don't smoke cigarettes or drink. I've already made a doctors appointment but that doesn't calm my anxiety down (it just makes it worse until I go) and I'm almost too scared to go. The pain is a bruised kind of feeling, it doesn't really feel like my heart and it's different from anxiety related pains I've had.
I'm just really worried considering where it is and the length. I don't want to go at this point because I can't think of anything rational it could be that isn't serious. It hasn't gotten any worse, really or changed much at all but still hurts.
I'm honestly almost too worried to post this.
