Pain under left breast/ribs?

I have not had heart PROBLEMS, but heart concerns, and the last trip to my cardiologist was due to this. But my doctor said my heart looked fine, besides a mild arrhythmia from time to time.

The pain is burning/sharp and is on the left side of my torso, below my breast and seems to be under my ribcage. It doesn't hurt to breathe in or move, and it just started as I was sitting still doing nothing. My heartrate is fine. What could it be and should I be worried?

    I have that problem and after months of test I figured out it's stress.

    Being stressed leads to producing more adrenaline than usual, which leads to irregular breathing which in turn restricts your blood vessels leading to muscle pain around your heart.

    Try to eat healthy, sleep well, and breath properly. It takes time for your body to return to its normal state, if the pain consists try to take muscle relaxers and strong pain killers.

    Also applying hot or warm water or the area relieves pain.

    1st off worry and tension always seem to make pains worse and as your cardiologist says your heart is ok that's the most important and most life threatening thing out of the way.

    The most common cause of chest pain in otherwise healthy people is poor posture if you tend to slouch when you sit or even standing you are putting unnecessary pressure on your inter costal muscles, these are the cushions between each rib.

    Sit up straight and enjoy your Christmas.
