Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain left side due to gas

chest

Avatar m tn It didn't last long and I went back to sleep then I woke again due to unbearable left side chest pain, and it hurt SO bad, it was intermittent, it would go away a few second then BAM back again for awhile, this went on for about an hour and a half before it finally eased off and I was able to go back to sleep. I also had really bad gas following the chest pain but expelling it didn't seem to help really.
Avatar n tn About 10 days ago I started feeling chest pains that were quite worrisome. Mostly the pain is just to the right of my upper sternum. It comes in goes in a matter of a couple hours or so. I will often rub my chest and try to stretch out and it helps a little. I went to the hospital to see but no conclusions were found. They did an EKG and chest xray but found nothing wrong. Iv done some online research and I think maybe the gas is to blame..shouldnt the dr have suggested this?
Avatar f tn I get bad stabbing chest pain with gas pain due to GERD. I don't get it all the time it is once in a while and not necessarily when I breath in. It is when I lay down. I don't know which one it is you have if any. But these are some suggestions for you. It sounds most like the pleuracy. Let me know what the doctor says if you go in.
Avatar n tn I was suffering from similar chest pain due to gas for almost 2 years untill recently. Finally my doctor found out that I had Giardia in my stool. I don't know how I got infected, but the doctor said, it is very common for the campers to get infected. It spreads via food and water. Giardia was breaking down the protiens I eat and before they are digested, they are fermented. Fermentation causes gas and gas caused chest pain. With a simple stool test you can know if you too have Giardia.
Avatar m tn I have something similar, it moves around different locations under the armpit, pain down my left arm, sometimes in my left side of chest. I've been to the Emergency a few times and everything is fine, blood is fine they couldn't find anything. I found that it gets worse after eating certain types of foods, as well your stomach can create more acid if your stressing and have allot of anxiety which is a bad combo - you can read this article for the link between stress and acid - http://www.

Avatar m tn Not so very long back, I have been troubled with some pain in my left side of the chest. This pain is more in form of spasms and rapid beating of the heart/ artery around that area. Nipple retraction is often accompanied with this. Also it literally numbs my left arm (muscle tightening). Unfortunately I'm a chain smoker (20 cigarettes a day) and a very regular drinker too. I have been facing gas/ acidity issues as well. To top it up I have brittle teeth and eye floaters.
Avatar m tn It is difficult to diagnose chest pains on net. Sharp stabbing pain under left ribs or over left chest could be due to acidity with gastric reflux or hiatal hernia. Take a late night snack. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Walking around also helps clear gas.
Avatar m tn im on beta blockers and having pain under left arm in chest area on side not in front i feel tired everyday and flush face
Avatar m tn ok I am 28 and last year I started having alot of chest pain and gas I did have wieght gain before it started but my doctor ordered alot of test ekg,nucular stress test,echo cardio gram,blood work,etc everything said I was fine I was told I have gerd and recently told I have gastritis but everytime I feel the pain I think its my heart and I have gone to er after er saying the same thing but im worried they ar just missing something cause the pain it is on the left side of my chest it feels sharp
Avatar n tn Hi, The chest pains radiating to the back can well be due to pulled muscle, costochondrtis, oesophageal reflux, gastritis etc. However it would be best to see a Doctor to get the correct diagnosis and treatment. At the age of 50 years it is necessary to rule out cardiac problems. A baseline ECG may be done. Take care and good luck.
Avatar n tn I am a 26-yr-old female and for the past couple weeks I have been experiencing some pain in the left side of my chest. At times, it will come on suddenly, as though there is a giant bubble that won't pop and is so painful its hard to breath. It usually last a min or two. Most of the time, there is just a dull pain that continues in that area and sometimes spreads to the shoulder and upper arm. I am concerned because it is becoming more frequent but I am not sure what it is.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 28 year old female and offlate (about 2 weeks) I've been feeling this vibration on the left side of my chest. It feels more intense when I've got my arm against the side. It seems to be more in my left breast. I mostly feel it only while I'm sitting. Is this normal? Should I have this checked up or would it go away in a while?
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Sharp stabbing pain on left side of chest could be due to acidity with gastric reflux or hiatal hernia (since heart causes are ruled out). Take a late night snack. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Walking around also helps clear gas.
Avatar m tn It sounds like the pain could be related to lack of oxygen to your heart, also called angina. You should have cardiac functioning tests done, as if unchecked this could eventually lead to a heart attack.
Avatar f tn I don't know what your limitations are due to the Tact' but you might want to be talking to your GI about a Colonoscopy.
1346447 tn?1327866172 It would be difficult to conclude a prior heart spasm caused your heart attack especially when there is evidence of occlusions that may have caused an ischemic heart attack. Unless there is some objective evidence of spasms (seen during test, etc.) the analysis may only include the objective evidence of your occlusions. Demographics may be considered such as most common with younger adults, but older individuals can have episodes especially in older women.

Avatar m tn I get sharp pains occasionally in my upper chest mostly my left side, under or near the under part of my left breast. Can gas cause this pain? It is usually after eating.
Avatar m tn Hi! I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. Pain in left side of chest and upper armpit can be due to a bad gastric reflux with severe acidity and gas. However, first all heart related causes like angina and heart attack should be ruled out by an ECG. 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.
Avatar m tn I am experiencing the EXACT same symptoms. My chest pain on the left side at times becomes unbearable but it hurts my whole chest. Gets much worse when i eat or drink anything. When i wake up in the morning i am freezing but sweating. Light headed and feel like if i move too quickly or at all i will faint. Its like i have to spend an hour lying there taking antacids and gas-x and pain medicine before i move. And even then it barely helps i just have to force myself to move.
Avatar n tn I have a constant pain accompanied by an occasional stabbing pain in my left side. Its been 4 days now. It started like a nagging ache more toward my stomach, then my side, then my back now my side again. I saw my doc on day #2. He took an xray then decided it was diverticulitis. That afternoon I noticed that the skin on the left half of my stomache and back is numb. I called the doc. He said it should go away by that morning. It didnt. I had to go to the ER that next morning.
343006 tn?1314450071 I am glad I found this information. I have also been experiencing exessive gas associated with pain in upper left chest...I have been afraid to go to sleep in fear I might die of a heart attack or stroke. Belching and passing gas does help some. I am taking 50mg of Toprolol.
Avatar n tn Am in the same boat--colonoscopy showed nothing, but two days later I'm back in a lot of pain on left side. I have to find out what this is. Definitely keep pursuing this--and let me know how it turns out for you!
Avatar n tn I'm not on any medication except penicillin which I am taking because I had strep about a week ago. The pain switches from upper left side to about mid left side to middle (belly button area). It's not constant or extreme pain but like an annoying ache or dull pain. I explain it as twitches or twinges of pain. I'm sorry your having problems too but it's comforting to hear that I'm not alone. Everyone thinks I'm crazy but it's not my imagination. I really am having problems.
Avatar n tn I was just walking along when all of a sudden I started having the sweats badly and the some chest pain. This chest pain was not localized to the sternum area as it usually is but all across my upper chest. I felt a little tingle in my shoulder blade area as well. But no other symptoms. And I seem to be starting my period a week early for some odd reason.
Avatar n tn I don't understand why do so many people "still" have difficulty believing that there is not more to their PVC's AFTER their doctors/cardiologists told them not to worry about them. I can understand the uncomfortable feeling. I believe what the Cardiologist told me "not to worry about my PVC's no matter how and when they appear", but they are still uncomfortable and I hate them, but I do trust the Cardiologist.
