Can anyone help me? For the past few months, I've been getting severe chest pain when I eat. It's not a burning, more a tightening or clenching and not central, it's up in an arc towards the left side of my chest, almost an arc around the top of my breast. Does anyone have idea what this might be? I have a cardiology appointment coming up but so far doctors tell me it's IBS, which I don't believe one bit. Some days I can't eat at all in the evening because it hurts so bad and some days not at all all day, it's very disruptive. Has anyone else had something like this?
