Chest pain..

If I breath in heavily in certain positions (never with a straight back, its always when I'm bending/slightly bent) my chest just under my left pec hurts.

I don't feel it when riding, its usually just when I'm sat about.

It doesn't really feel like a strain, but if I sit up unaided and breath in with my stomach tense and back muscles clenched, it really seems to pull.

I can't tell if its my core muscles, lung or diaphragm though as its in that sort of area.

I guess i'm just fishing but anyone had the same/have any ideas as to what it could be?

If it carries on i'll head to the doc's i guess.

    Might be pleuritis - localised inflammtion within the pleura or "lung sac" But best to get it checked out.
