Over the past month I've developed a persistent ache in the right side of my chest. It's often worse in the morning and then gets a bit better through the day. It's worse when I lean over or forward.
For about 2 months I have had persistent belching and gas and was treated for acid reflux, but the chest pain on the right side has got worse, or at the very least persisted (it's achey rather than heartburn-style feeling).
I am 27 and stopped smoking 2 months ago after previously smoking since I was 21. The doctor sent me for a chest x-ray which I had on Friday and am now anxiously waiting for the results.
Has anyone else had a similar issue? I know I just need to wait for the results but it's hard not to fear the worst.
