Chest pain causes in women

Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain causes in women


Avatar n tn I am a 46 year women who for the past 2 years have had chest pain, nausea and severe headaches. Have gone to several different doctors and had lots of test. They found that I have severe acid reflux I take 2 to 3 nexium a day and Zantac at bedtime and found out 3 months ago I have a hital hernia. My family has a history of heart trouble and had a heart cath on Monday and found no blockage.
Avatar n tn ve had some pain in my upper left and right chest area at different times and not lasting long. The pain is not bad and it doesn't last long and it is usually accompanied with belching or gas. I also have a history of asthma too. Any idea of what might be causing this pain since initial test seem to rule out cardiac problems. No one in my family has a history of cardiac problems either.

Avatar n tn Although your palpitations were previously investigated and found to be benign it would be best to be reviewed again, particularly as you have been more tired than your baseline. Your chest pain when you breathe in might not be related to your heart rhythm and there are many potential causes which include a chest infection, chest muscle strain etc. . Menopause presents in different ways for different women but palpitations and chest pain would be somewhat atypical symptoms.
Avatar f tn i would go and see your doctor donna, another of your posts said something bout stabbing pains in the chest and back and abdo pain...that combined this could be any number of things. scabies is very easy to pass around, you can get it so simply and it is annoying as hell.
Avatar f tn Another possibility that can explain the pain is pericarditis. It causes chest pain aggravated by laughing yawning and deep breathing and also causes radiation of pain to arms. Again an EKG, heat echo and chest X-ray is required. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.
Avatar f tn It could be something as small as Gerd, or it could be something related to allergies. When my allergies to dairy act up, my stomach gets bad but also i get a ton of mucus build up in my tubes and it causes pressure pain in my chest. My asthma inhaler usually helps remove it or if it doesn't have pressure, musinex does well. You can also get it from being around chemicals a lot or by smoking.
Avatar n tn I am under 18, and very healthy. But recently I've been having a sharp pain in my ribs, slightly to the left. It intensifies when I breathe deeply and when I stretch. The pain only lasts about five minutes, lessens, then goes away. This occurs at random moments, whether I'm sitting or standing, moving or standing still, and any time of day. What could it be?
Avatar m tn My question is I have been experiencing a tightness in my chest and low grade nausea for a couple of weeks. I am starting to worry that I have heart disease but not sure if it is just a result of stress. I don't have med insurance so I am not sure how to get this checked out but I am definitely concerned.

Avatar m tn These sensations can last for a long period of time, and can actually occur anywhere from weeks after the surgery itself, to years later. Women who experience this pain should be seen in a Pain Center,because there are some nerve blocks that can be done. In particular, one that is sometimes helpful would be the Stellate Ganglion Block, which would be done by an anesthesiologist trained in pain medicine.
Avatar f tn Good I'm so glad to hear that, hope you feel better soon!!
Avatar n tn And like I said, it is different in women. Like Angie sid, it is a burnng ache in the center of the chest. If you begin to feel that you should not take any chances.
Avatar f tn Pain when taking deep breaths Pain when coughing Difficulty breathing Costochondritis is the most common cause of chest pain originating in the chest wall. It occurs most often in women and people over age 40. However, costochondritis can affect anyone, including infants and children.
Avatar f tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain and referred pain to left shoulder. A CT scan of the chest can rule out both. Chances are that you could be having gastro esophageal reflux (GERD), where the food in your stomach is thrown up into your food pipe or esophagus. This also causes burning sensation or discomfort in the chest area.
Avatar n tn I am 18, virgin, the reason I write is because I have a chest pain very strange, already went to a gynecologyst but she say it was a quiste someting like that and told me to make an exam that is done 1 day after your start day of the period, how do I prepare for that exam?

Avatar n tn Just yesterday I had a sharp pain in my upper left chest at the same time I felt like I was going to black out. I grabbed onto my desk and a few seconds later I was okay, other than being a bit shaken. I have these experiences a few times a month. So if you find a different answer please let us know.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm a 23 year old female. Physically healthy, except for the odd bug going around. For the last month or so, I randomly get a pain in my chest. It's like someone is reaching in and squeezing it so I can't breath. There is no consistency to when it happens, although I've mainly noticed it when bending over to get something. The pain only lasts for a second or two, so I'm not overly anxious about it, but maybe others have felt the same?! Thanks!
Avatar f tn This is commonly referred to as the rotator cuff disorder. This can cause referred pain to the chest. The pain can also be due to other causes like cervical rib, cervical spondylosis or disc prolapse. A simple x-ray will help and an orthopaedician can guide you. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn They even said I could start an exercise program I was looking at. My problem is I still am having very non specific chest pain and arm pain. It is sometimes in both my arms and sometimes in my armpits. Sometimes I have sharp pain in the middle of my chest and sometimes my neck and underjaw ache. I know my stress echo was normal but could this be my heart or should I look into other causes for my pain? Just don't feel myself and don't know how reliable the 2nd stress test is.
Avatar n tn heloo, i'm 26 yrs. old and just wanna ask why i always feel pain in my chest sometimes i hard also in breathing but sometimes i feel only pain and i'm getting afraid, i did not go yet to tha doctor or cardiology... im just trying to research what is this. i dont know if it is normal or not This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/254556'>Chest pain (left side)</a>.
Avatar f tn Pleurisy As you can see, there are a lot of possibilities. Pain in the chest that radiates down the left arm could be something as benign as tendonitis. I had very painful chest pains on the left side that increased when I inhaled. This is common in young women and is called costochondritis. I would recommend seeing a doctor for any chest pains, even if they are mild, there are so many factors to consider with chest pain it is not something you can treat yourself.
