Pain in left side of back. Goes from under bra strap to the bottom on rib cage. Feels like its on the top of rib cage not under like I keep reading. Can not find any information on the pain that I am having. It's unbearable at times and settles down to a dull ache when I rest.

Can you help with any ideas what is going on

Is your left shoulder rounded forwards?

Sounds like a muscle strain.

May be it is muscle strain but consult doctor once.

Same Mid left back pain.
I have the same pain going on now for a year. Had 2 sets of x-rays done and a heart ultrasound. Also an upper endoscopy. Not it. What else? It is moving under my arm now. It seems to get bad enough that it is interrupting my life. I can't get out of bed to do household chores long enough before I'm in tears. The Dr wants a MRI. But no insurance. Too expensive. Anyone got any clues? Yes I do have a heart condition. They say it's not that. Yes I do have a stomach condition. They say its not that either. So what is it? Thank you in advance. I'm so glad I found this forum. Maybe I can get a clue here?

Back/breast pain
I have the same problem and actually just came back from an Urgent Care facility because the pain is so intense. It hits me about once a year and usually just prior to a stressful situation I'm about to xperience. Always on the left side upper back then it radiates to my breast especially the nipple. Doctor says it may be nerves in the breast impacted by whatever happened to the back.

I think I'm gonna contact a neurologist to find out what it is. I wish you all the very best and that you find relief from this. It really impacts our quality of life. Take care.
