Chest Pains

I think I saw a passing mention of this on another thread, but now I can't find it again. Has anybody else ever gotten chest pains while on radiation treatments? I don't mean chest pains as in a heart attack, but more like muscle cramps. I've had this for a few minutes several times in the last week or so. I only have one more radiation treatment to go, so wondering if the chest pain/cramps will stop once the rads are done.

    I don't remember having any
    I don't remember having any chest pains Nancy when I had rads. If someone else did, I hope they will reply to you. And, be sure and tell your rads oncologist when you go for that last treatment and let us know what he says.

    Early congrats to you on finishing rads!


    Hugs, Lex

    I wonder if it could be because rads kind of tighten our skin, or, I think they do. It is like when you have a sunburn and your skin feels tighter. Maybe that is why?

    During one of my sessions, I
    During one of my sessions, I felt a big stretch as I put my arms above my head. As I was driving home, I started having spasm like pains where my nipple used to be. They said it was because of the stretch and my nerve endings were repairing. That's the closest I had to what you described. Was it the center of your chest or the radiated side? Was it near an incision?
