sharp tearing ripping pain in chest


Posted by tjohnson

I am a 39-year-old healthy woman, but for the last year or so I have been experiencing sudden, tearing, ripping sensation in my chest.  It only lasts a second and then it is gone.  It happens about twice a day but not every day. It started off as hardly ever happening in the beginning, but now it happens more frequently.

see your doctor immediately!!! This could be an aortic anyeurism, a potentially life threatening problem
