Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern.

Is the pain below your right breast? Is the pain above your ribs, at the area of your clavicle or shoulder?

Does the pain radiate from your shoulder down ? Are you having any other symptoms?

Have you been diagnosed with any type of cardiac disease?

It is possible you may be experiencing angina. Please speak with your primary care physician soon.
