Texidor's twinge


Texidor’s Twinge or Precordial Catch Syndrome (PCS) is a condition in which sharp, severe left-sided chest pain occurs and is likely musculoskeletal in origin. The pain frequently occurs in children, however can occur in adults as well. The pain is worse with respiration and is only brief in duration (seconds). The etiology is thought to be related to muscle spasm or the pleura of the lung may be involved. No specific treatment is warranted and there are no reported serious complications of this disorder.
