i have a/s and i do chest chest pain, thought it was a chest infection at first but dr examined me and was clear, feels like some one sat on my chest and painful when i breath out, after 2-3 days it eased off, spoke to my specialist about it and he said it will have been a flare up which i do get all over my body at random times.

Hi. I was having the same pain in my chest. Had blood work, heart ultra sound, x-rays heart was fine. Finally diagnosis with Costochondritis. Symptons mimic a heart attack. If you have RA or AS your at risk of having Costochondritis. Hope this helps a little. Feel better๐Ÿค—
