Chest pains for as long as I can remember

Hi, I have been back and forward to my local doctors for some time now with constant chest pains on my left side. Also between my shoulder blades feels at times I'm being stabbed. This is a daily thing which doesn't stop me from work or play but it's an annoying dull pain that won't leave. I have suffered this for as long as I can remember and I eat healthy and I'm active any thoughts on this ?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Pain that frequent and often should be evaluated for musculoskeletal causes as it could be a pinched nerve, a sore rib or anxiety induced chest pain. Needs evaluation and symptomatic care.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
