Chest tightness sweating

Common Questions and Answers about Chest tightness sweating


Avatar f tn I have been having tightness in my chest, sweating, hot flashes, shaking (both on the inside and outside), pain in my neck, pain in my back between my shoulder blades, episodes of belching (even with nothing to drink for over 6 hours)... I was going to go to the ER this morning when I woke up freezing and shaking. I don't have a temp or anything. Could this be thyroid related? I had my TSH and free T3 and T4 done yesterday. Didn't get results yet? I am taking 125 mcg of levothyroxine daily.
Avatar m tn The fact that you also experience this kind of sweating during the day with only slight exertion, along with chest tightness, may be another sign of heart problems, so as michelle says, it's time to see a doctor and find out what's going on.
Avatar f tn I'm a 23 year old female and I have been having chest tightness for a little over 4 months. It started two months after I quit smoking. I was a smoker for 6 years. I've had multiple chest x rays, ct scan with contrast, upper endoscopy, pulmonary function test, stress test and an echo. Everything turned out fine on my test except I have little secretions in my chest he said I needed to cough up. I currently have a gastroenterologist, pulmonologist, cardiologist, and a psychologist.
Avatar m tn I am a 24 year old male and have been experiencing tightness in neck, chest, and sometimes shoulder area. The tightness is not painful like I could have a heart attack but more irritating. I had surgery for a hiatal hernia and had laparoscopic fundoplication done and I also have scoliosis. I've been to a chiropractor for my tightness to see if that would help but it just came right back. Wonder if this could be related to my scoliosis.
Avatar n tn I had triple by-pass surgery back in February, 2008, and had another angiogram back on September 8, 2008, as I am having alot of chest tightening and breathing problems. The chest tightening and breathing problems will get worse if I do activities and even with just no activity at all. In the last few weeks, even just sitting or lying down in bed will bring on chest tightening and breathing problems.

Avatar m tn So...this is probably a little late to start this but here we go. This is day 88 of chest pain..just under 3 months. For the past 88 days i have had constant pain in my left chest. Some days it is very severe others it is not. I have had several EKG's all normal. I have had blood tests (normal), X-ray (normal) and a CT Scan (normal). Most days the pain is a sort of squeezing tightness. Once i have had trouble breathing and often the pain moves into my neck and left arm.

Avatar n tn Hi Im a 28 year old male who has experienced moderate to severe chest pain in the last 2 years. During this time I have been in and out of ER's and have also had met with a 4 cardiologists and had what I deem to be a thorough cardiac work up. The work up included: multiple ECG's (over 10), a 48 hr. holter monitor, an echocardigram, an event monitor, and a stress test. With the exception of one ECG that showed a Premature Ventricular Contraction the doctors have not been able to find anything.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Cardiac pain or chest pain can be felt as a tightness and worsens with activity or exercise. Angina many a times can be missed by a routine ECG. In which case, a treadmill or an exercise ECG may help. You are not a hypertensive. If you are a diabetic and overweight, you fall in the high-risk group. In addition, if you are a smoker, the risk increases many fold. So it would be advisable to have a treadmill ECG done.

Avatar m tn My question is that over the past few weeks I've started to get a feeling of tightness in the chest (not all the time), this is right centered between the rib cages and feels like a slight pressure. It isn't acute, and there are no other symptoms of anything (nausia, shortness of breath, sweating). I am in my mid 30's, non smoker.
Avatar f tn I have no idea what the topic name should be. My husband on 2 occassions has complained of a burning chest and shortness of breath and weakness after excertion.. Like today when he was moving bricks in a wheelbarrow.. I asked him if he had pain in his left arm and he said no and if he had pain or tightness in his chest and he again answered no.. He also is diabetic type II. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn About a year and half ago I had surgery on my ankle. The day after the surgery my chest started felling really tight and then I started feeling intense pressure in my chest that just kept getting worse. I was in a lot of pain and couldn’t breath I started to feel lightheaded and dizzy and I also started sweating. My mom gave me some aspirin and the pain and pressure went away after several minutes.
Avatar f tn Any mild or sever chest pain , lasting more than a few minutes, along with sweating, tightness of chest, difficulty in breathing or radiating to the arm, left shoulder, arm, or jaw may be needs to be urgently evaluated medically. Any part of the chest can be the cause of the pain including the heart, lungs, oesophagus, bone, muscles, but it is important to rule out life threatening conditions like heart attack, angina, pulmonary embolis, pneumothorax or aortic dissection.
Avatar f tn About 1 month ago I started feeling the front right side of my neck feeling sore with some moments near my collarbone. I was also getting chest pressure and shortness of breath. The doctor gave me antibiotics and some steroids and referred me to an ent doctor. The ent Doctor felt no masses in my neck and the antibiotics and steroids have not helped.

626692 tn?1222005037 The most common symptoms may include trembling, dyspnea (shortness of breath), heart palpitations, chest pain (or chest tightness), hot flashes, cold flashes, burning sensations (particularly in the facial or neck area), sweating, nausea, dizziness (or slight vertigo), light-headedness, hyperventilation, paresthesias (tingling sensations), sensations of choking or smothering. Stress is an important causing factor.
Avatar f tn since then I have been experiencing muscle spasms in my chest around the implant which is normal. Over the past 2 months, I have experienced a different kind of pain though. I have had a breast MRI which showed no abnormality in the implants or around, as well as a chest and breat ultrasound which showed nothing either. The pain is random and sharp, feels like someone is stabbing me for about 3 seconds.
Avatar n tn I took antibiotic for two weeks and the pain on my chest go but right now i'm feeling shortness of breath, tightness on my chest, and chest burn with mild cough. Can someone help me what this might be now.
Avatar n tn I am experiencing a tightness or squeezing in my chest just below my left breast but no increased pulse rate or blood pressure. I did not have this problem before starting the medication and have experienced no other effects other than feeling a bit jittery in the hour after I take it. Is this something I should be concerned about or is it just heartburn? Is this a common side effect with Synthroid? Is the dosage too high for subclinical hypothyroidism and causing bad side effects?
Avatar n tn But he is a non compliant patient, so taking him to the doctor is only half the battle. As far as a heart attack goes, it is usually a feeling of pressure and tightness at the chest, accompanied by sweating, weakness and difficulty breathing. A sharp pain is more like indigestion or gallbladder. Anyway, don't tell him that. Get him to the doctor.
Avatar m tn Hello to everyone in this forum, I am a 25 year old male, 5'10, 206 lbs About five months ago I started getting chest pain about two inches from the center, below and above my breast. it was like pressure that would last a few seconds and never in the three areas at the same time. I went to the doctor and i had an EKG done, the doctor came back and said the EKG was good, he also said my BP was a little high 140/90 and he started me on some Benicar for that.

Some cases of epilepsy have chest pain in the prodromal features or aura features.
Avatar m tn I have NO dizziness, nausea, sweating or shoulder pains that would point to a heart attack. Could the chest tightness be muscular-skeletal? I have been stressed out lately. Thanks. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/748387'>Do I really need a pacemaker?</a>.
Avatar f tn After the blockage was discovered thanks to a persistent PCP, and the stent inserted, I had chest pain afterwards. Was re-catheterized, all the major arteries were given a clean bill of health, but was placed on a beta blocker. Terrible reaction to the first one, put on a second one, and finally my cardiologist took me off that one as well. Although I see some improvement, I still have chest "aches" on exertion.
Avatar n tn Hi all. I had an ablation 4 weeks ago and since that time I have been experiencing chest tightness, pressure, and sharp pains in the heart. I am seeing my doctor on a weekly basis to determine the cause and undergo treatment. Following a work up of tests (echo, nuclear stress, ekg, etc.) the doctor has determined that everything in the heart is normal and that this "discomfort may be something that I just have to ride out.
Avatar n tn 4. After a minute of sweating I suddenly feel something coming out of my rear end. I try to squeeze it out and only a hard stool comes out. 5. The sweating stops and the stomach cramp subsides. I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6.
