Shooting pain across back
JDinSRQ posted:
For about two weeks now I have been having a shooting pain across my back at the level of my bra back.

Not everyday but about 10 out of the last 14 days.
Sometimes 2-4 times a day.

And sometimes it feels like it wraps around to the front.
The pain lasts for just a few seconds.
Does this sound heart-related?

There is no way for any of us over an internet message board to diagnose you. You must see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

You really need to see your family doctor about this!!! If you are worried it could be heart related, don't you think you should see your doctor?

It could be nothing, it could be something? Best bet? Go see your doctor!!!

Good luck!!!
