I've had PCS since childhood and the thing that most worked for me is to lay down on my fist or something hard placed just under my left breast towards the sternum. This makes the pain go away. However, my last episode about a week ago lasted several hours, and I still seem to have a dull ache which has never happened before -- anybody have that?

I've had it off and on for 7 years. Most recently I've had it every day for a week and a half. I never knew what it was and have asked many doctors about it. I'm so glad I found this website today because no doctor has ever been able to explain it to me. I was even on Nexium for a little while because they thought it was acid reflux but it's absolutely more of a muscular chest pain and not esophageal pain. I went to the ER for it once but the pain went away by the time I got there. I felt a residual dull pain for hours afterwards and have felt the same sensation after other episodes. I'm actually feeling it right now and I had an episode before bed last night. It goes away. It's just like having sore muscles after working out.

I attribute mine due to stress, bad posture and inactivity before bed. Mine goes away if I lay down on my back. I'm going to try some other methods people have mentioned in the other forum to see if they work as well.
