its hard to tell what you have, but having chest pains may mean many different things: heart disease, lung disease, chest wall disease, stomach or esophageal disease. So I would seek medical attention and let them figure it out.

Good luck

I have injuries to neck and back and have fibromyalgia. I have smoked marijuana for pain for nearly 8years. I constantly find something to be concerned about because I suffer so many symptoms. I have been concerned about almost every type of cancer, diabetes, ms, als, parkinsons, etc. Still for the past month I have had increased shoulder pain and I do have some symptoms of a smoker (dry throut, weezing) and immedietly was concerned about lung cancer again. When I really think about it I think what I suffer from is obssesive anxiety that is instigated by my fibro but heck that doesn't stop me. However after reading from this cite I realize i am not alone in that...
