Over the past 5 - 6 months I've been getting extremely strong pains in my chest during my period. I'm 23 and have Poly cystic ovaries and I'm not overweight. Most recently these pains keep me up all night and are starting to worry me. I think they are worse when i've been sitting down for a long period of time and then stand up (i think). It feels a bit like heat burn or indigestion but worse and over an extended period of time. It usually lasts about a day or two.

Do you know what could be wrong?
Thanks in advance
