Mine feels like my chest is exploding and it’s getting frequent.
It was dx 12/2015. No treatment Dr didn’t think it was an issue. “Yet” !?! I had a severe cough. I awoke with major chest pain. Tearing, sharp, radiating pain. I lay in bed thinking “if it is a heart attack. It would be very painful.” Then another wave of pain hit. It was very painful.*(early Saturday morning) My boyfriend took me to urgent care. *my choice. They demanded I go to hospital ER. I didn’t want to make to much out of it. I had seen other people sent home with gas. Turns out, it wasn’t gas. After much testing and many appts. It was PAH. Group 1&2. I ended up with a lung biopsy. The chest pain began as once in awhile. Over a few years has become more present then not. In my case the pain is both muscle and cartilage. Pain is both left & right side, going into my back, shoulder blade. *polycondritis, pleurisy, rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue disease. Asthma, biopsy positive for emphysema & PAH.

My cardiogenic CP is substernal and occasionally radiates to the left arm and scapula area. My PH pain is several times a day and feels like an "ouch" feeling in my R clavicular area.
