Thyroid and chest pain

Common Questions and Answers about Thyroid and chest pain


Avatar_n_tn I had read somewhere that problems with your esophagus can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I'm wondering if because my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> is pressing on my esophagus that the two are related. Of course my worst fear is that I have thyroid cancer that has now spread to my lung! I have no shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing, however. Any ideas? Many thanks!
Avatar_n_tn I have taken synthroid for many years but I have just recently been having chest pain in the center of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> with a radiating ache across the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> upper arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> shortness of breath plus faster heartbeat on the slightest exerction. also just changed salt to an iodionised version. could this change be the reason for the chest pains or has my perimenoposal system changed concerning the dosage of my synthroid.
Avatar_f_tn He tried to switch me back to the Synthroid, but I still got really bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pains. He tried every other kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> on the market <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they all gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pains. He thinks it may have happened because I was also taking Tamoxifen at the time after a lumpectomy & radiation for breast cancer, since it also has an effect on the hormones. (I have been cancer free since 1997) We stopped all thyroid, and then I started getting severe chest pains on antibiotics for sinus infections.
1069633_tn?1255246589 I'm still suffering the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am worried about pulmonary embolism or metastatic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> cancer, can these things cause right bundle branch block? I'm assuming if it was a pulmonary embolism I'd be dead by now. My fathers side has all died of heart disease, my dad now has the beginnings of it, and my maternal grandfather died of a heart attack instantly at the age of 65. I realize I am young, but I am very worried due to already experiencing cancer.
Avatar_m_tn If the condition improves,then it was costochondritis other wise other conditions like cardiac ,Gi or lung pathologies.Some other possibilities are anemia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> diseases(hyperthyroidism),fibromyalgia, ankylosing spondylitis and irritation of the nerves supplying the chest by buldging disc of cervical or thoracic vertebrae.These also have to be probed if the symptoms persist even after treatement for costochondritis. Hope it helps.

Avatar_f_tn I have a sore throat only on right side, my whole right side of my neck is swollen all the way behind my right ear causing pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ear pain. I am scheduled to do the uptake <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> scan in 2 weeks. Just not sure if this is normal for symptoms to increase as rapidly as they are. I am having more dizzy spells, more headaches, heart is racing, chest pains. Only medication given is propranolol, aderal and steroids for the sore throat and swelling.
Avatar_f_tn Feeling so weird tonight...I have so much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I know it is associated with Graves disease. I have a new endocronologist she is the greatest. I am on Tapazole and Lopressor and I think that this will be what I will be on for the rest of my life. I am hoping that my Graves disease goes into remission but I know this may be with me forever so I'm trying to deal with the best I can. I have an appointment on 5/19 to talk about my lopressor dosage so hopefully I can only take one a day.
Avatar_m_tn I have low normal tsh and t4, but I have swelling in my throat and trouble swallowing (i'm having a barium swallow tomorrow) I have a history of anxiety related <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pains, extreme weakness in legs, severe hip pain, tight muscles, swelling in arms and hands, numbness tingling in legs and feet. ringing in my ears, blind spot in R eye, decreased blood flow to R eye, droopy eye, unequal pupils, ulcers in mouth, miscarriage, heavy 9 day periods, irritability, dry scalp, thirsty.

Avatar_m_tn You should call him and schedule a time to have blood work done again as soon as possible. Don't ignore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain! If you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> nodules, ask him about those <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> how those can possibly effect hyper/hypo symptoms The nodules should not go unnoticed. Sometimes they can be nothing, and sometimes they can cause your hyper symptoms. Did he say why the thyroid uptake scan didn't work? Could you do another one? I hope you feel better soon.
Avatar_f_tn The burning has been constant for a week now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pains usually at night. I have suffered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> problems before, but this burning is causing me stress. Could it be related to increased dose, Which shows tsh dropping, but t4 rising?
Avatar_m_tn Ok I really don't know if this has anything to do with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span>, but last night i had this pulling feeling under my tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then numbness for my tongue and part of the right side of my face. This morning i had a stabbing sharp pain on the right side of my chest just below my clavical, lasted about 3 secs then went away.
Avatar_f_tn Some have switched to Synthroid and gotten better results. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain before taking any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> meds. Now I'm on Synthroid, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the pain has eased significantly. Some have gone the natural route and taken drugs like Armour and Nature thyroid. I have thought about taking natural drugs, but because of the shortage, I am sticking to my Synthroid. You might be able to find a compounding pharmacy in your area that will make the natural thryoid hormones for you.
Avatar_n_tn Sometimes, a cervical disk may irritate the nerve roots going to the chest wall and produce chronic chest pain that is aggravated by walking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> certain body positions.Anemia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> diseases(hyperthyroidism)can also cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain. It is very difficult to pinpoint a diagnosis unless physical examination is done.You need to undergo various investigations like ECG,stress echo,X-Rays chest,complete blood count,thyroid function tests and nerve conduction tests.
Avatar_m_tn The Yog Pranayam will help to control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span>, hypertension <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> cholestrol. Do it daily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> come back to report your results. Build up your timing gradually. If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute. Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose. Duration upto 5 minutes. Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second.
Avatar_f_tn Last night I was awoken out of a dead sleep by several PAC's in a row <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> today I am experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain at the top of my left breast slightly to the left of my sternum. It feels almost like a pulled muscle, like a slight burning along with the pain which comes and goes but is not tender to the touch. This has happened once or twice before (over 2 years ago) but I never looked into it. Can the event of having PAC's in a row cause chest pain?
Avatar_n_tn It comes and goes I also get palps after numerous visits to ER and a battery of ecg's, chest xrays and blood tests I have been told that there is nothing wrong with my heart, not that it stops you being anxious about it (another symtom) The pain does come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> often is high in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometime high in my back between my shoulders, sometimes it's a sharp pain sometimes a dull ache. Stress definitley aggravates this and sometimes i can't sleep on my back either.
641392_tn?1283327548 Hi, have been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation for nearly 2 years now and my problems appear to be getting worse, i am seeing my GP for a lump in my throat/chest, have to get a camera down to tummy to see whats happening, also now am getting a very funny sensation on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> down both arms so have been referred to a heart specialist?
Avatar_f_tn Meanwhile I developed tremors, heat intolerance, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> irritability. So I quit med on November 23 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> repeated labs on nov 25. Labs were still high..TSH .02. T4 2.5. So doc said I did the right thing quitting the med and plans to recheck in January when all of med is out of my system. I'm still having light tremors and horrible chest pain. Could this still be from the little med I was taking or from the overactive thyroid? I just want the pain to stop. Feeling a little scared.
Avatar_n_tn I was getting sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> palpitations (racing heart). They tested my iron stores - Ferritin (18 very low!) and since I started taking an iron supplement, these symptoms went away - poof!
Avatar_f_tn 100mg of fludrocortisone? Can you please check that? A normal dose for that medication is .1mg and that can make you swell up unless you work up to the dose carefully. 100mg would be a horrible overdose. That can cause you to retain too much sodium - I would go to the ER. I don't know why your doc is having you take cortef (hyrdrocortisone) at night - is there a particular reason why he does not want you to sleep?
Avatar_m_tn Hello, I'm a 31 year old male, 5'10" 160 lbs. I've had chest pain on and off for 4 years now, mostly on, but went about 6 months without any pain 2 years ago. I've seen 2 doctors, 3 years ago. 2 EKG's, both normal. Blood pressure slightly high, 140/90. Doctor said heart was very strong and healthy. and it seemed to go away with peace of mind, but returned. Saw 2nd doc, another EKG, normal, felt better for awhile, but the pain came back. Basically just lived with it.
Avatar_n_tn i am 30 year old male . few day back i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain or same time left leg bottom pain.
Avatar_m_tn Do yourself a big favor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> find another MD, Good <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> md's always refer to Free T3, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> symptoms, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> any md that states what yours did is not realistic and will only keep you in misery, Anxiety and depression are Definatethyroid symptoms, it takes long enough to get optimal with thyroid, do not extend misery and ill health listening to this clown! She is totally off the wall. How can anyone with medical training state that Free T3 is unrliable!
Avatar_f_tn I have pain that develops in my upper right arm, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> spreads across the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, to the back and on over to my upper left arm. It comes on suddenly with no precipitating events. It lasts only from about 15-30 seconds and is gone. During the event, I can hardly stand up and am extremely weak afterward. The only time we were able to reproduce the pain was during a chemical stress test just after the adenosine was administered. It happened immediately.
Avatar_m_tn and heart palpitations.....<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some times skip a beat..<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> tiredness..ived seen my doc too <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he said that im normal...with my ecg and of my friends said that maybe its just i have panic disorder or anxiety probs..thats why i felt this way since i dont have any history with drinking and smoking too...well...maybe u are just experiencing that too....
1448748_tn?1312959808 I have had several bouts of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain over the last year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my heart has been checked out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I've had several ct scans they could never find the cause. I do have a higher risk for blood clots but never have had one. I'm experiencing chest pain ib a band like sensation. Its like pressure. The worst part is in between my shoulder blades among the right side of my spine only. It hurts to breathe deep. I do not have a syrinx only chairi 11mm. Can the chairi alone cause this?
