Chest pain not heart related

Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain not heart related


Avatar f tn Yesterday I started experiencing some neck pain and a light chest pain. Not really sure is it related to gas or is it due to the neck pain. Today it has gotten worse, I might have slept in a wrong position that made the neck/upper back pain worse. The chest pain is still here. I'm panicking and not sure whether this is heart related or not. Ive read before that chest pain related to the heart could cause the neck and back pain.

1534233 tn?1523388856 I started having problems with rapid heart beat, palpitaions, burning/pain in chest, panic attacks, feeling of lump in throat,etc about 3-4 months ago. I have since been to the ER numerous times, urgent care,ambulance call, and countless doc apps. I told them I was sure I had a heart attack and had EKGs done, pulmonary(breathing) test, countless blood tests done. All were negative, I argued that the panic attacks were caused by my symptoms not the other way around..end result is I have GERD..
Avatar f tn t be ruled out, and/or pulmonary malady. The wave you felt may be heart related, and a variation of heart palpitation (irregular heart rhythm) and usually not medically significant such as a skipped heartbeat.
1492140 tn?1288850380 gas can cause chest pain hw we know it is heart pain or it is because of gas?
Avatar m tn If the pain is heart related, there would not be pain when taking a deep breath. Angina (heart related pain) usually happens when one is exercising or exertion of some sort, and goes away with rest. A lung disorder can stress the heart to work a little harder than normal to get an adequage supply of oxygen into the system and the extra work can enlarge the heart's left ventricle. If and when that happens you will have shortness of breath, fatique, etc.
Avatar n tn Pain with breathing is not normally heart related. You may have a lung infection, bronchitis or pleurisy. All will have chest pain with breathing. If it hurts worse when you breath in deeply, it's most likely not cardiac in nature. You should see a doctor if you're concerned.
Avatar f tn t breath and sometimes have chest pain,is this heart related? I have been tested for heart issues,nothing came back. BUt if I get really upset and yell, then I am really tight and feel like I can't breath plus chest pain,should I be worried?
212633 tn?1277307127 It may be gas related but if i were you, i would do a chest MRI to rule out other chest related diseases like cancer. (not scaring you but 4 years is a long time). Schedule a chest test - MRI or an xray. Does this happen after you eat? Do you lie down after you eat?
351724 tn?1267537018 Hi i read your post and it really doesn't sound heart related to me....CHF or congestive heart failure is not hereditary so don't lose sleep over that...your dads heart is his own as yours is and his situation could have been caused by alot of other situations as he lived his life. As far as the lightheadedness and sweaty hands go that is a classic symtom of anxiety because you are upsetting yourself.
Avatar f tn You definately could be expierencing what is called angina (Chest Pain) It is related with Atherosclerotic Heart Disease. I have a question for you. Does the chest pain happen when you are at rest? Or does it start to happen when you are doing something exertional, then it goes away when you rest? Like running, getting groceries...etc. Typically anginal episodes last from 3-5 minutes. It is a serious problem! You have to get the chest pain under control if it is Cardiovascular.
960737 tn?1246996062 It's best to see your Dr. These symptoms could very well be heart related. Even though your only 42 you can have heart problems. Really, you need to see your dr. It could be several different things but only your Dr. and possible testing can tell you for sure. Take care.
390388 tn?1279636213 My BP lately had been running very low for me lately these last few months 104/61 HR 103 though somedays it can jump up to 168/115 HR 69. (Odd for me having a low heartrate as some of my older friends on here might remember) It's been a while since I have been on here. I've learned to pretty much deal with it and pace myself accordingly though.
Avatar f tn I woke up this morning with pain on the left side on my chest (more to the middle). I could not lift my arm or the pain would hurt more. Eventually I could lift my arm, but the pain came back. When I woke up the pain was gone, but I can still feel a small amount of pain. I am a female and would rather not go to the doctor. I read that some people say it can be stress? Your help will be much appreciated.
Avatar f tn The chest pain could be related to heart vessel spasm. This condition wouldn't be picked up with a test unless it occurs at the time. You should monitor your heart activity and try and capture the event to rule out a heart problem. There is a condition that occurs with young adults and it is called Precordial Catch Syndrome (PCS). Can you rule out PCS? It manifests itself as a very intense, sharp pain, typically at the left side of the chest, which is worse when taking breaths.
1790160 tn?1315385794 you immediately seea good cardiologist and rule out the possible gastic problem. It may not be related to heart. but I feel one should not take it for a chance.
591312 tn?1218868480 Yesterday I did not feel any chest pain, but I have had this pain earlier this month as well, one time I could not even sleep lying down because my chest hurt each time my heart palpitated. On my previous post I mentioned that the pain was literally as if a needle was progressively going through the heart as I inhaled, and pain relieved progressively as I exhaled. I do not have any injuries in my chest.
Avatar n tn i agree with AJWS6 he needs to get the all clear i get chest pains and various other heart related symptoms but i have severe health anxiety.
Avatar n tn Heart pain is usually diffuse, or radiating. Pinpoint discomfort is not so likely related to the heart. Your doctor has checked you for heart problems, which makes it even more unlikely that your discomfort is heart related. From what you describe, it sounds more like musculoskeletal injury or inflammation, or nerve pain (e.g., a pulled muscle in the chest wall or shingles involving the chest.). Also it could be stress/anxiety related.
Avatar n tn The pattern of your pain resembles heart pain. Heart pain can go along entire left arm toward the small finger. It is related to exercise, stress, cold. Quite reliable diagnosis is by trying nytroglicerine tablets right after the pain. If this helps in few minutes, it's probably heart related. GERD goes with stomach burning, heartburn, possible burping. Gastric pain is worse after meals, duodenal pain is worse between meals and during the night.
Avatar m tn im 20 with no past med compilications but, ive been having some chest pain....and went to the doc and had xray and ekg and everyting turned out normal. they said try prilotec otc for on day 2 taking it.....should i be worried its something else with my heart?
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 17 years old. I have, for about 6 months, been experiencing periodic chest pain. It's not severe pain and I'm not sure if it's just related to school and how stressful it is. Also, when I get anxious, my chest starts hurting and my fingers and arms sometimes go numb. My family has a history of heart disease and my mother has had a heart attack four years ago. I don't know if I am just being worried over simple anxiety or if it's something serious.
1348086 tn?1370783185 I keep getting a feeling like a catch in my breastbone. I don't think it is heart related, it feels more like pressure on the outside of my bone but I also have some tingling in my left hand. I am subject for carpel tunnel because I am a computer programmer. I just need some reassurance. I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and I worry about my health. I had blood work done in February and everything was normal.
Avatar f tn I have nerve damage on my leg and sometimes pain is so bad that I take tylenol with codine to sleep. Last night I took the pills at 11 pm and around 1am I woke up with chest pain. The pain was across my whole chest and extended to the back. I also felt nausia. I do have a valve that do not close all the way. But my heart beat wasn't fast or faster that normal. Sometimes I have pain in jaws and also on my right shoulder. Could those symptoms be sign of heart atack?
