Jaw pain chest pain

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain chest pain


have had 3 episodes of pain in my jaw & across my chest for about 30 minutes, had a angiogram today & they found no blockages? Is there something else it could be?
Here lately I have been having severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> and my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> hurts its like a combination of pain and burning. I went back to my Cardiologist and he said I have been checked head to toe with a EKG a stress test with Cardiolite and Echo with bubble study. I know he thinks I'm crazy but I'm scared to death that something is going to happen to me. I had my cholestrol checked and it was perfect. I'm so tired of worrying about having a heart attack should I get a second opinion?
I have heard that heart problems have been known to just cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>. I was wondering where that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> was and what it felt like, and If that was true. I have been to the doctor and was put on a heart moniter for a week, I have pvc's. Since I have been diagnosed with pvc's and I know what they are I am not worried about them anymore. But this pain is bothering me.
If you are having any other cardiac symptoms such as shortness of breath, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>, nausea, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> radiating down the left arm or anything like that go to the Emergancy department. It is however more than possible that you could have an infection in your jaw, say, from an impacted or infected wisdom tooth. Tooth pain can often make the ear and neck hurt as well (just as an ear infection can make the teeth hurt...).
excellent sprinter, but unable to run for more than 4 minutes since I was 10. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, neck, tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>, dizziness, nauesa starts 3 minutes after beginning to run. same thing for the last 12 years. I didn't think it was weird, but finally decided it was a problem this year. I just hate not being able to excercise like everybody else. Resting ekg normal, bp normal, constant resting tachycardia ~100-110. Thyroid normal. My cardiologist did a stress test today, and I feel totally scammed.
Question #1:If angina presents as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> with no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>, what, typically, is the nature of the pain? Diffuse? One-sided? Squeezing? including the neck too? I have a mild discomfort only in one particular quarter size area of my jaw, just to the left of my chin that comes and goes. It can last a few minutes or a couple hours. Exertion does seem to bring it on, but I also sometimes have it at rest with a heart rate about 75.
I believe it orignates from a tightening in the chest and then, since everything is connected, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> moves to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and sometimes to the head and then sometimes to the back in no apparent pattern. I 'm of the opinion that this pain does not necessarily mean that something seriously is wrong. When I am successful at putting my mind elsewhere (watching TV, reading, walking around the block) I can mitigate the pain a bit (it comes and goes).
If you have the complete workup and everything turns out fine with your heart - you may want to check out costochondritis - I had recurring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> that mimicked heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> and even ibuprofen didnt do much - its an inflamation of the lining in your chest wall - usually, once people get it - it can recur for the rest of your life - I have it on and off all the time - usually after Ive done something like lifting or wallpapering - but sometimes it will come on for no appearant reason.
the problem I am having is a sporatic bout of very intense <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> in the center of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, between my shoulder blades and in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>. It will last anywhere from 5 - 30 minutes and usually occurs at night while I'm in bed. I've been woken up by the pain before and it is very scary. It feels like I'm having a heartattack, but then the pain subsides and goes away.
i would definately see a doctor, you could've even had a mild heart attack, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> radiating from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> to the lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> is a symptom of a heart attack, if you have any dizziness or feeling sick then see a doc straight away
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> on the left side artery and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> also going up left side of head and sometimes I have chest pains. I have four stents in my heart and I had two strokes in 2007. what I need to know am I having a stroke or will I have one soon or a heart attack coming?
I just had a occurrence of bad/deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> (middle of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>) and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> in my lower jaw. This has happened a couple time before and not sure what this is. I did have a sandwich at lunch and this occurred about an hour after this, so not sure if it is heartburn or something-or if it is more serious than this. the pain is very bad that I feel like I am going to pass out sometimes.
I was having every symptom that I thought was related to heart trouble. From <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>, tightness in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> in my arms, jaw, etc. I had never had any experience like this before so naturally it initially was very frightneing. I was at the ER multiple times, saw variuos cardiologists, had multiple tests done only to confirm that heart health wise, I was okay.
Symptoms of angina pectoris include a feeling of discomfort or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> along the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> with occasional radiation to other regions such as the left shoulder/ arm, upper abdomen, jaw etc. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
Lately I have been getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pains with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> ache together and have been getting leg cramps at night. Also frequent urination. This has all just been happening in the last month. I have just had some blood work and have an appointment with my endocrinologist in 5 days. Whats happening to me?
I can't lay down without extreme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>. If I get up and sit back down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and face have extreme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>. I also have a headache and my chest has a deep ache with every heartbeat. My upper back has pain and I have'nt lifted anything heavy. I took aspirin but hasn't helped. What do you make of this?
This, added to the fact that you are having symptoms (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, back to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>), makes the case for at least doing a stress test. Of course, the pain you are having might truly be very atyptical - unrelated to exertion or stress, or occurs with body position change... Your doctor might have decided to hold off on a stress test because of the nature of the symptoms.
I have been have episodes of left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> for about 2 months. I have had a stress echo which was normal. I had a cardiac ct with calcium scoring in which my calcium score was 0 and my arteries were clear ( they couldn't see my right coronary artery completely but they assured me it wasn't my heart). I have been on Nexium for my stomach and have been referred to a GI doctor but I continue to have this pain and jaw tightness.
4 times this year I awaken from sleep with severe squeezeing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pan and left arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span> very bad only three times out the 4 times the nitro help the last one the nitro didn't help out at all. I'm telling my Cardio Doc and he is raising my meds but I think something is going to happen. I had a test call hs CRP blood test two week apart and the 1st one was 28.45 and 2nd one was 33.48 both was very high. What else could I do to help myself.
Some people don't experience any pain with identical occlusions that cause some to have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span></span>, etc. I think the appropriate response on a scale of 1-10 the pain can be within the given range and different parts of the upper torso and jaw. . Thanks for your question.
