    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Pain in pectoralis minor
    An_255883 posted:
    Since I started working in Golf course, I have been hitting a lot of golf balls. This is a repetitive sport and my chest muscle is strained. IBUPROFEN have helped, but the pain comes back when I start hitting balls again. I have never had this pain and again, I have never this many balls in past. Any ideas or experience in this matter will be appreciated.
