I am more and more frequently having a stabbing pain in my chest and leg simotaniously. The stabbing pains occur both at the same time every time. It is a horrible stabbing pain that makes me bring my knee up to my chest. It is always my left leg and just under my heart area. Do you have any idea what this may be caused from?
Since you have a history of Kidney Stones, please compare this current pain to the pain you might have experience earlier due to the stones. Pain of the kidney stones is not known to be relieved by change in body position. Please consult your surgeon and rule out a recurrence of kidney stones.
Another possibility could be some problem with the spinal nerves. It is difficult to pin point the level of a probably nerve impingement at some level, but getting an scan of your back will help you rule out any protruded disc and/or nerve impingement.
