About a month ago I started feeling kind of a tingling sensation in which my chest gets a bit tense whenever I make a downward motion with some force (imagine making your hand into a fist, and thrusting it downward). I get this sensation on my upper chest (the area bordering my shoulder). This happens also in the same exact area on my right side when I thrust my right fist downward.

If I thrust both downward, I get that tingly sensation in both areas. The sensation only lasts for about 1.0 second.

I dont feel it in any other type of motion nor do I have any other symptoms.

The only thing that has been different lately is that I stopped working out for a while (I used to almost every day).

Should I schedule an appt with a general internal doctor, or a cardiologist? Thanks

Prehaps this issue is related to the nerves. I might suggest seeing a general doctor to ask for the recommended specialist. Not sure if you need a neurologist, orthopedist, PT, or a cardiologist...or someone else.

What do you mean "When I thrust downward"? What kind of motion is this? Also, have you seen a doctor? Perhaps this is occurring because of a pinched nerve? Given that you feel the sensation on the right side of your body, it doesn't seem to be affecting your heart. Is this correct?

Chest pain
well thats for everyone who has posted here : Tingling sensations in the chest are more often caused due to stress and depression. In general nothing to worry about, but if you still feel uncomfortable go for the preliminary heart diseases test such as ECG (Electrocardiography) along with Blood CP (Complete blood count and if GOD forbid you have anything serious your GP would get to know.
