The Fundamentals of Trigger Point and Fascia Self-treatment
Spasms below left breast and underneath ribs -Doctors Lounge(TM)
Most people do not know about the subclavius muscle, but it can be the source of pain in the area of the biceps, your inner forearm or the first three fingers. With trigger points in this muscle, you might feel pain all the way down your arm. It may even radiate into the thumb and first two fingers. The darker the red in the picture below, the more common it is to feel pain in the respective area when trigger points are present in this muscle. Still, it might cause a tight feeling in and around the chest and collarbone and may impair the flexibility of the shoulder. On the one hand this muscle helps to stabilize the joint that is formed by the breastbone and the collarbone, called the sternoclavicular joint. As the subclavius muscle is not exerting or initiating big movements, there are none of such that are common to overstress it.
Why Does It Hurt Below Your Sternum?
Jodale18 over a year ago. Can anyone give me an explanation as to the twitching I get that's central and under my breastbone, it feels like paplatations but im guessing its not, no other symptoms and its not painful, just irritating and worrying as to the cause. Not been to doctors as there is no pain so they won't do anything. Domaxp over a year ago.
Muscle spasms in chest can be quite ordinary to younger people, as the young have a tendency to think they are immortal in a sense and they blow it off as too many push-ups or heavy bench presses. However, as we get older, it becomes alarming. We might think we are having a heart attack and rush to the hospital, only to discover it is a spasm. What a sigh of relief that is indeed.
