Upper Stomach Pain

Upper Stomach Pain

Has anyone ever had upper stomach pain right under the bra line and sometimes going straight through to the back? I went to the ER a couple days ago with pain that was almost in the chest area but was right under the breasts and going straight through to the back. I had an EKG, lots of blood work for liver and pancreatic enzymes, and a CT scan. It felt like gall bladder pain, but I don't have one.

Does Anyone Experience A Back Ache When Wearing A Bra?

I get pain right at the bra line when wearing a bra it seems to get better if I don't wear one at all. I've tried every kind of bra out there. The pain also seem's to move from my bra line to my lower back. Anyone experience pain that moves from one spot to another?

For the past week I have had pain from my shoulder blade, under my arm and under my right breast...only that onecside. It gets worse through the day and wearing a bra is unbearable. It is the first time that the pain actually made me cry and hurt so bad I could hardly breathe.
