Avatar m tn For 5 years I have suffered with Chest pain that radiates into my back and down both arms during excertion. I have had stress test, heart cathorization, throat and stomach scoped. I've been tested to see if I am having spasms in my esophagus. I went to an orthopedic doctor who performed an mri of my neck and upper back. I did have two disc buldges in my neck but he said that would not cause the pain. The pain stops when I stop the excertion.
Avatar f tn Did they give you any medicine, such as nitroglycerine for the chest pain? What testing did they do? Did they tell you what sort of irregular heart beat you had? For instance, skipped beats, ectopic beats, bradycardia (slow heart rate), supraventricular or sinus tachycardia, etc.?

Avatar f tn My son is 10 years old and he recently received a trampoline for a late birthday gift. Recently he started complaining of chest pain. We figured he was not used to jumping and that maybe he was messing with something inside like a muscle or something. He has been complaining for a about a week now and tried to jump again and it is still hurting him something awful. Could this be a pulled muscle?

Avatar n tn I am a 23 year old female-nonsmoker/nondrinker/normal BMI who began having chest pain 4 months ago. I believe the pain was initially onset due to stress (I was switching jobs at the time). Stress is gone (went back to old job) but pain remains: blood test (hepatitis, h pylori), EKG, gall bladder/liver function, echo cardio/stress are all normal. I have been treated with arthritis medication for costocondritis and been perscribed both prilocec and nexium with no help.
Avatar f tn I think you should schedule an appointment with a cardiologist for a general appraisal of your heart. Many times chest pain is not the heart, it is the muscles in the chest. But, still it should be checked out by a doctor that will give you specific diagnosis results and recommendations. You age suggests you don't have any heart problems, but if you continue to have high BP without treatment I think you will have heart problems someday in the future.

Avatar m tn When ever I hold my breath and let all the wind out of my lungs and squeeze my chest it will give me pain on and around my sternum. If I turn my head sharply I will feel pain on the right side. But what hurts me the most is when I push down on my sternum or pull an object into my sternum. Nothing shows up in xrays and the doctors just keep sending me away without telling me anything. Does anyone know what this could be? It also does hurt in my back on the right side when everything hurts.

Avatar f tn Following a TIA four years ago I ceased taking female hormones. This morning, while lying in bed, I had a very slight chest pain which was just left of centre and seemed to extend through to my upper back. It was only slight and lasted less than 20 minutes and then went away. Should I seek medical attention? I should like to express my thanks in advance for any guidance provided.
Avatar f tn Can anyone please help or advise me, i have had this chest pain / adominal pain for nearly 1 month and its not getting any better, been back to the doctors lots of times but no answers yet, had a ultra sound today but they did nt do my whole stomach. It feels like something may be behind my belly button which moves around and pushes up on my chest / sternum area, its so painful and now the painkillers i take tramadol is not working like it did.
Avatar n tn What can it mean when a 32 year old starts having a heavy feeling in the chest....along with bad pain the in the same area when he talks loudly.....Plus the feeling that once you "breathe through" the heaviness in the chest, it feels better? Do I need an airway endoscopy? Or ask my doctor to look down there with one of those dental mirror things? What can cause this feeling?
Avatar m tn Last night after about 1 hours sleep I awoke with a severe chest pain and was sweating profusely. I sat up on the bedside and apparently fainted, finding myself disoriented on the floor. I sat up again still sweating and very weak. My wife called 911; EMS arrived and did some tests before taking me to our local teaching hospital where I was admitted to emergency. During this latter time the severe pain abated but I felt a slight pressure in the chest.
Avatar f tn Laying down helped alleviate the pain. After this first onset i have had duller chest pain in the same area, which comes and goes (some days i have it others not so much). This pain is not affected by pushing the area or any movements. It feels like bad heartburn but does not occur only after eating. My chest x-ray showed some thickening of the periobronchial walls in the lower left quadrant.
