Anne, I was going to wait to post this, but I did go for a mammogram this morning. I'm supposed to call them whenever a change occurs, even if seemingly minor. So I called yesterday, told them there were no lumps, only muscular pain, and they insisted on checking it out. Well, the pain is in the left breast, but they found "something unusual" (their words) in the right one. If the MMG shows anything, they'll call be back on Monday. I'm SURE it's just fibroids and refuse to worry about it any further unless I have to.
When you don't like a thing, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.

Quote (ms madness): "the getting older bargain" - WHAT?
LOL - Did I fail to read this in the fine print?

EH, it does sound very much like a pulled muscle. I have the urge to agree with Hannelore. Can you find the meridians traveling through the point of your pain and have your hubby do some accupressure on the appropriate points, if you can't reach them?
It could be a referred pain (never heard of it in a chest muscle, but I haven't heard everything, for sure). Can you better describe the pain... is it sharp, dull, shocking, pulsing, etc.? Can you better describe it's location?

Good for you Eagle. I wouldn't worry either. I really don't think the pain in the chest and "something unusual" are related. I am loaded with unusual somethings and now have to go every six months for an ultrasound.
