SAMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE


Pineyyyyyyyyy

Dude, my hands are legit already super warm because of good circulation, but i still get this


I_am_Trash_number_1

Same, my hands are pretty much always warm, but every once in a while my heart will still do the annoying pinchy feeling


Alacer_Stormborn

Visceral pleura. It's a layer of flexible flesh covering your lungs that helps lubricate and ease expansion whenever you breath. Sometimes it folds over itself, doesn't lube properly, and sticks to itself. That "heart pain" happens when you breath in, and unstick the thing.


Tripple_Zeta

Thank you


Alacer_Stormborn

<3


Flying_Flexy

Oh man you took a stress factor away for me thank you! I usually have it on my right side, since I smoke a lot I always thought it was cancer or a collapsed lung.


MaywellPanda

I hateeeeee that! That mudatrucha


Alacer_Stormborn

Yeye. It can be annoying, but the quickest way to fix it is a steady, deep breath.


MaywellPanda

Yes! My nanna used to say it was indegestion but I was like nah fam! You don't get it. It feels like someone has put a very small pin in my chest and I must breath very spesfically or I will cry


samuelwen2007

Bruh, sometimes, my legs suddenly feel like they are on fire. It doesn't hurt at all, but its weird

Man, that sounds horrifying.


Primaniel

I always wanted to know what that was. Now I wish I wouldn't know.


gelatenous-blobfish

What the fuck is that legit? Oh my god. My meat sack really is a sack.


Alacer_Stormborn

:D


CricketTheHivewing

AAH SAME


ktq2019

Ahh! I’ve had this happen since I was a kid and every single time, I legit think I’m going to die for a moment or two.


opalminoncs

Heart burnnn


IAmEthanCullen

No you’re still alone. It’s just that other people do what you do


CleverBoi18

HOLY SHIT I THOUGHT I HAD A CONDITION AND WILL DIE SOON. GUESS I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE


AskGold6396

HELL YEAH IM NOT THE ONLY ONE!


Send_Doots_And_Noods

Yeah, for me it's a sharp spike feeling in the side of my lungs. Always have to control my breath.


ya_lil_dovahkin

Your first thought is that your heart is hurting but when you play closer attention from where the pain is coming from you realize that it’s your lung. It feels as if someone stabbed a hole in your lung and that spot is being sucked out, a continuous wave of pain growing stronger


yeeyee049

From what I read it's a pinched nerve between your ribs and lungs, still makes me squirm thinking about it Edit: It's actually called [precordial catch syndrome](https://www.healthline.com/health/precordial-catch-syndrome#diagnosis), basically temporary pain caused by irritated nerves in your lungs or ribs, its very common.


Minute_Classic7852

So google lied to me and it's not terminal?


yeeyee049

Its temporary and common, don't worry, you don't have lung cancer.


JoePikesbro

Dammit. I already robbed the fucking bank!


_Neel__

I'll be your alibi if I get a cut! 😏


Lazy_Cardiologist727

It can be terminal if you put your heart into it


ElevenThus

Every-time you google a symptom you experienced you feel like you lost decades of health


the-laughing-joker

Oh that's cool, I always referred to it as a catch in my lung


Xx_redditor_69_xX

Same, I used to think it was some long-term affect of pneumonia bc I had it when I was like 7, and didn't ask for some reason


NormandyLS

yes this


coopmeister2026

Yea


Flinnnx

THIS HAPPENS TO ME WVERY TIME I WAKE UP. FRICKING ANNOYING.


shadowlegend551

Is it on the left or right lung? Mine is on the left


osma13

I was always so sure I was fucking dying. I always get extremely weak and tired after


adamhimseIf

yeah no the second part never happens to me i think ur in real trouble


osma13

Fuck....


EveryDisaster

You might want to look into symptoms of Tachycardia and have a discussion with your doctor regardless. Feel better!


osma13

Thanks! Haven’t experienced this in a couple years now, thank goodness. But it was so exhausting when it did happen.


Admirable-Weight8424

You absolutely should not be feeling tired and weak after, that is evidence of a cardiovascular abnormality. I know this because I have cardiovascular abnormalities and experience strong ectopic beats. I recommend having those experiences looked into.


the_spookiest_

Mmm heart palpitations are fun, aren’t they? Sucks doctors can’t make them go away.


pheonix940

It doesn't help that a lot of things can cause them too. Too much of a stimulant? Heart palpitations. Anemia? Heart palpitations. Vitamin deficient (of multiple kinds)? Heart palpitations. PTSD? Heart palpitations. General stress? Heart palpitations.


the_spookiest_

Lack of sleep? Heart palpitations. Thankfully, for me, that’s what causes it


pheonix940

Yea, I had some for a while. I focused on sleeping better and fixing my diet. Gave up soda and limit processes food. No idea what did it but I'm fine now lol.


NormandyLS

wtf


osma13

Life is so great


singhpk1

That second part doesn’t seem very normal, I think you might actually want to contact a doctor about that...


Dreaming-Luma

I agree


trumpetrabbit

One of the causes of this type of pain is [costochondritis](https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/costochondritis/symptoms-causes/syc-20371175).


D1ngdongurwrong

I think for the hyperlink you have to get rid of the gap between ] and (


trumpetrabbit

Thanks


D1ngdongurwrong

No worries


Frequent_Tangerine_5

Nice person


Lostmyfnusername

"Worsens when you take a deep breath or cough" Are we talking about that lung thing that makes it feel like your lungs are in some type of pain cage or are we talking about the heart? I'm confused if I've ever had what op has or not. I think I managed to avoid both for at least ten years so I only have vague memories.


trumpetrabbit

The pain comes from the muscle wall of the rib cage, and the inflammation of the cartilage, so it's more like pressing against an injury from the inside. Many people have a hard time telling how deep pain is, so it can be mistaken for a heart or lung issue. I describe it as suddenly loosing the ability to expand my chest as I breathe. Sometimes I can take smaller breaths, other times I'm practically holding my breath. The organs inside the chest are functioning properly, it's inflammation and nerves.


Salfea121

Can confirm, mine used to be so bad that i would get out of breath while sitting in class, nor speak more than a few words without breathing heavily. Mine got worse in the cold, anytime i inhaled cold air it put me in a coughing fit. Sometimes it’d feel like my chest was on fire. Ibuprofen didnt help but with the pain, if still be out of breath, my resting heart rate would also increase from 64 to 100 something during the episodes. It hasn’t stopped for two years now, but it has lessened (pain and severity wise). Still cant laugh or it’ll put me in a coughing fit. It also didnt help that i would do fencing and bad mitten when this was at its worse. I took a few weeks break and it didnt help it much


iamlibert

Thank you for this


trumpetrabbit

You're welcome! I found this condition completely by accident, while trying to find someone on yt with fibro (which I have).


bengt114

Ah yes at least it reminds me I'm alive.


MyssTs

Especially when you take deep breathes when it's happening, hurts so much


Aus_The_B0ss

Ikr I have to take really small breath cz I'm afraid my heart will explode with pain


Unperson_337022

Precordial catch syndrome? Sharp pain in the left side of your chest near your heart, feels like a pinpoint, feels worse with deep breaths or when you move. You stay still and take shallow breaths and it goes away quickly with no lasting effect. I've had this from time to time since I was a kid. Naturally, I assumed I had a bad heart or something and never told anybody, just acted cool while letting it pass.


Yoghurt420

Thanks alot


Dinostreams

Why not just finish the job


MeMe-God-7

All my homies feel is *pæn*

schlowm0

Better question why not


Aleece1989

I get this all the time. I currently have a heating pad on my chest, I think it helps. Random chest pains are horrible. I'm glad I'm not the only one!


small-town-alien

Had this happen to me earlier today. My pulse shot up to 137bpm.


Soul_Like_A_Modem

This can be your heart doing something weird periodically, but it can also be esophageal spasms. When your esophagus spasms it can feel cause chest pain and also affect your breathing, in a way very similar to a heart attack.


Loogeemian64

when i first joined reddit i thought i was different. The more i went down the rabbit hole, the more things i realized i wasn't alone in. Im not the only one who hets random pain in their side or heart. Im not alone in pretending that i can shoot water outta my fingers in the shower. so, as i have realized, reddit is one mind on more than just preferences. Its a hive mind as in we all do the same things. My conclusion? we all need to get a life.


googol89

Too many jelly beans not enough water


yougoddangfool

so it isn't just me?


Nitro2pow

I used to get this all the time, just means you have to be more active


EnvironmentalAd9749

What???


Addictive_SODA

I've been suffering from this for years it comes and goes randomly, is this normal?


king_jaxy

Or when it goes *Floof blump blump floof*


Impossible_Soil_4563

I have it almost twice a week in the side of my chest, when I try to breath it stabs harder lol Thought I was alone


Quirky_Translator797

I remember that more than a year ago I was in bed and suddenly I began to have stabbing chest pain along with a tingling in my left arm, I had a hard time getting up at that moment I just accepted the fact that I was going to die, after a while it passed and I think it is a pain that I do not want to experience again, goodnight everyone.


Mikeologyy

[Precordial Catch Syndrome.](https://www.healthline.com/health/precordial-catch-syndrome#diagnosis) it might be what you (or other people in the comments) are experiencing, or it might not idk. I’m pretty sure it’s what I’ve got but you could just have something else.


NeoLothbrok9

Thats called a heart palpitation. Had my first one in 2nd grade. Was the most extreme one I experienced and lasted for 45 minutes. (Breathing a certain way helps a bit). 2nd worse one I had was in highskewl and was entirely my fault, drank a 24 pack of mountain dew in one night and was hospitalized the next day. Its bassicly a minor form of heart attack.


skere_ik

Yeah this that is shit.


flowerpassion2112

That’s called heart burn?!


Cold-Pressure9368

Beanzuwuz

intrepidsteve

beebob420

mdosis

Grantoryx

PpBigNoice

thekilleritachi

BigStringyBoi

Whyou21

That pain doesnt happen in my heart, it either happens in my left shoulder (never the right) or in my stomach area for some reason


ISAI_64

Literally never happened to me I feel left out


Lazy_Cardiologist727

Just stab that motherfucker that's gonna stop the pain


Death_Dispatcher

I think you should refer a doctor my friend.


Pay15

The worst is when it happens to your legs and you have to try and walk.


SnooFoxes7163

My family has had heart problems in the past especially with my grandparents and the first time I felt that I thought yep this it it. It’s my time


Zaxek

This happened to me when I was eating something hot and my chest felt like it was on fire while being stabbed


GooglyEyeBread

A vibe check


HeraldTesla818

THERE ARE OTHERS!?!?


fuckitymcfuckfacejr

Good job, OP. Others might not have noticed, but I see you out here seeking medical advice in the guise of a meme.


PM-ME-YOUR-MEGUMIN

Not your heart, you could have precordial catch syndrome. It's basically like air bubbles trapped in your rib cage.


butter_donnut213

I hope it decides to stop being a coward and kill me already


OutlandishnessDry826

Agreed. It feels like it's stabbing me everytime i breathe


oneyedkingdes

Ah so I don't have lung cancer. Great!


IamChef1234

If your gonna do that just kill me


xpertranger

Look up prechordial stress syndrome, learned the name a couple years and couldn’t believe it was a thing


dodulinka

I’m more like finally


G2boss

I get that in my lung sometimes, I remember when little 9 year old me thought my rib had splintered a bit and was poking my lung.


SpeedyIcer

I'm 16 and THIS ALWAYS HAPPENS. Every time I'm ready to bolt to my parents and just be like "I'M FUCKING DYING"


FairlyKay

I thought this was just me dying-?


sliceofsourcream

doctor: "you're heart is in real bad shape, why did you wait so long to get checked?" me: "well a bunch of people on reddit liked this meme so I thought we was chill, ngl"


S0n1cS1n

Go see a doctor, y’all


ABakdi

Don't you hate it, when it doesn't actually kill you? Like WHY? Just WHY


abhaybanda

ME TOO


ripallmyhaters

Not a pinch it's like a poking sensation


RunInRunOn

Pretty sure that's a rib movement


spectre474

It just happened to me a couple minutes ago


TheSpectress

Let's just say our heart just needs a second of appreciation for what It does....we often forget it's value and toss it to around for others to play with 🧘‍♀️ #heartrights


rubi-style

it's what it feels like when your heart skips a beat - it literally skips a beat and this isn't even rare but usually it happens in shock moments. For example when you can't feel your phone in your pockets right away or your friend asks you how much you've learned for the exam but you didn't even know there was an exam today


jhftop

Holy crap. This picture looks creepier now that I know that there's another angle to it.


ThatLastDisease

Anyone else's heart felt weird after reading this? Asking for a friend


Representative-Pain8

Huh. I thought I was the only one who felt this shit


SnooShortcuts8061

You're not alone, child


ProbablyTed

Yah why, why the hell didn't u do it


Sasho2006

Yea me too its so fucking annoying.
