my child is 14 and has pressure in the upper right chest area its very close to the center, barely to the right. she only feels pressure and slight pain when she swallows food or drink. she hass a small case of asthma when she really needs it she has used an inhaler that isnt perscribed to her, but we've never had a problem before and it seemed to work. after eating she feel pressure/discomfort for a little while then it goes away. she drank some soda guessing it might be gas and it helped for a little while, but thats it.
