What treatments can help precordial catch syndrome?

ANSWER

Precordial catch syndrome pain goes away quickly, so you shouldn’t need pain medicine or other treatment.

Some people find that when they feel the intense stab of pain in their chests, a deep breath may make the pain disappear, even though it may hurt to take that deep breath. Stretches or a change in posture could also help you feel better.
