I'm asking this question on behalf of my boyfriend. He is a 27 year old male, 210 pounds, 5'10".
When leaning forward, my boyfriend gets a tingling in his chest area on the left side, below the breast area. The tingling goes away when he leans back again. This happens about 75% of the time he leaves forward. He does not get chest pain.
He's very worried because he fears it is his heart. He is a smoker and in the process of quitting smoking and also has asthma. He takes Norco for chronic foot pain.
Does anyone have any idea of what this could be? Thank you in advance.
