Pain chest when eating

Common Questions and Answers about Pain chest when eating


Avatar f tn For the past few days, when I eat, I get this pain on my lower left side. The pain spreads up to my chest and I can even feel it in my throat. I thought it was gas because when I belch, it did help relieve it a little. Do you know what it could be?
Avatar n tn My Dad had the same problem, He had Pain in Left hand after eating. After some time of sitting idle (15-20 mins) The pain subsided. My Dad thought it was due to acidity. The problem was Heart was not able to pump enough blood after eating. This situation continued for 6 months and we found later that he had 3 major blocks. Consult a Physician and a Cardiologist. Dont ignore it.
Avatar n tn I took two 800mg Ibuprofin for a headache and two extra str tums for the heartburn and went to bed. When I awoke I had tightness in my chest and moderate back pain. However when I tried to eat the pain and tightness became so severe I belived I was having a heart attack. I have attemplted to consume food and becverage a few more times over the past 36 hours, but the onloy thing that doesn't cause unbearable pain is small sips of water.
Avatar n tn can you describe your symptoms in more detail please. Such as, when does the pain occur, is it when you are walking or sitting etc. How long does the pain last. Is it during or shortly after eating.

Avatar n tn I have experienced chest pain for the past two days. This chest pain is in my upper chest, almost right behind the sternum. The pain is very intense when I bend over (as in to wash my face) or when I take deep breathes. It is a continuous pain and I have no noticed it intensify after eating. I have experienced this pain before starting a few months back. The pain is not so noticeable when I am standing or sitting so often it is hard for me to determine exactly when the pain goes away.
Avatar m tn they can be on either side under my rib cage and they give me a headache they feel a bit like a stitch but in the wrong place or like i have trapped air but much worse these pains started about a month ago and at the time i was very stressed after my mother passed away only 4 months ago today so i was still very upset and because of this i wasnt eating very well and had been off my food for a few days but i am eating again now and have been for allmost 2 weeks now can you please help me idenify
Avatar n tn The pain pathways (due to a common nerve) are the same when you have esophageal problems and when you have actual cardiac pain. This makes it all the more fun. I'd rest easy though. Is she finding any relief from the Aciphex? It usually takes a few weeks (they say two, for me it took longer). And any clue as to why a 16 year old has such serious stomach problems? I'd be concerned about that too. Hope she feels better soon, I know what it's like to live with that pain.
Avatar m tn Chest pain or discomfort in children is not rare, and the history of when it happens (at rest or with exercise), time of day, how long it lasts, and how do the child looks, are all important. It is important to know if there is any dizziness, passing out or shortness of breath when it happens. There is not enough information here for me to tell you whether it is something to worry about. Statistically chest pain in children most often does NOT have a cardiac origin.
Avatar n tn I am 34 and had this dizziness for about 6 weeks now and I came to realize today, that it usually happens when I'm almost done eating. It would happen as a child when eating sausage, especiall from McDonald's. Most recently, I felt dizziness on back to back weeks and when looking up (at taller people or screens). I came to realize that it happens almost as I'm done eating. Feel faint.
Avatar m tn Well, i do not personally think that liver, gall bladder or gallstone will make you feel a chest pain. Your case, the chest pain can be muscular and you say only when u breath in then it pains. But to rule out anything, without a test it will be difficult.
Avatar m tn i dont know if this has anything to do with it but i have been under a lot of stress since my mother passed away on 21 October last year and i went off eating for a while the pains started when i was in bed the first time but now they come and go at any time and when im in pain i cannt do anything only get up and try to walk about but this dont help at all only takes my mind off the pain a little can you please tell me what you think will help thankyou
1433843 tn?1299695705 Jenny - never mess with breathing always go straight to your dr. Things can turn on a dime, I've had pneumonia and allergies and waiting is never a good idea. You need to take care of yourself. Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong, at 28 breathing should never hurt. Please see your Dr. Hope to hear back that you have an appt.
Avatar f tn but before these, like a year ago, i also got bad chest pain. usually lasted for a couple hours then it just turned out to be gas. i still am perplexed to this day. i noticed that drinking water,eating whole grains, and sleeping helps. try that. but if you got a lot of tests done then it has to be benign. dont worry, even though i know it hurts. just try the things i said and tell me how they work.
Avatar n tn I am 23 years old, and used to be in good shape, but this last year I have been doing almost no physical training and eating alot of junk food. I have been starting to feel chest pains that come and go, it feels like needles, and usually covers the chest area or it might be just on the one side. I also have trouble with a metallic taste in my mouth, and bad breath, which I think might come from the snus tobacco I use.
Avatar n tn For the past 2 months, I've been having chest pains on the upper left side of my chest. It first began when I worked out, and felt a sharp pain and burn on that side. It got so bad, I was rushed to the ER, where they said I might have pluerisy. However, even with the medication, it has progressively gotten worse; Now, I don't have to be running or working out for it to hurt, even in the resting state I feel a sharp pain. I looked up the symptoms, and it sounds a lot like angina.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your help. I have been having chest pain for about 2 years. I get this when I am sitting or driving not when exercising. I have had a nuclear stress test, echo cardio gram,ct thorax. All were normal. The pain is now less about 2-3 but I get it every day. I also had a ct angiogram which showed no evidence of stenotic or athlerscosis. I was told that my pain was as a result of cervical spondylitis or hital hernia or Coshtochonditis. I am 5 11 and 198lbs.
Avatar f tn Does your chest ache along the edges of your breastbone, and does your pain get worse when you cough or take a deep breath? It can be COSTOCHONDRITIS, an inflammation of the joints in your chest. Costochondritis usually goes away on its own. Try an anti-inflammatory medicine to relieve the pain. Heat compresses may also help. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a physician.
Avatar f tn i am 30 years old female who for the past 5 weeks has been having chest pain. It started off being tender when pressed and the dr thought it could be costochondritis. ECG blood test were fine. However few weeks later my pain has changed. It is now like a tight band or pressure and hurts when i walk, after eating, in the cold. I also get periods of being short of breath.
Avatar f tn Hi, Is tight chest pain under and behind breasts an early symptom of pregnancy? I have headaches, dizziness, cramping, bloating, back pain but thinking its just a flu. The chest pains are pretty sore...
851041 tn?1240699024 For example, if i am feeling sick or have a severe headache i relate it too perhaps a brain haemorrhage or stroke, and i find that it plays with my heart too, giving me chest pains and palpitationsHeart palpitations. I have these symptoms on and off all the time but they are always increased with a hangover. Just wondered if anyone had the same thing?
Avatar m tn I've had holter, event monitor, ekgs, blood work, and echo's, all normal besides the pvc's,pac's and svt. My chest pain is on the left side of my chest about an inch and half, to 2 inches with a measuring tape from the center of my left nipple measured straight across towards the middle of my chest. At around 1 1/2 to 2 inches is where the pain always is, and also I will get some pain in my left arm, shoulder and hand. It's like a gripping,pinching, squeezing type of pain.
Avatar f tn I am 30 yrs old female and been having chest pain for 6 weeks. At first they thought it could be costochondritis but then the pain changed where it is a tight feeling, discomfort which is made worse in cold, walking and after eating. On saturday i felt so bad with pain and i couldnt breathe, short of breath. They are trying all sorts but to no avail. At the moment i am on atenolol for anxiety to see if it is that. How long does it take for beta blockers to start working?
Avatar f tn I am 35 and have chest pain, arm and leg pains. I am back and forth to the ER and family practice only to hear I have anxiety and acid reflux. I often get knots in my right chest and then heavy feelings of pressure and tightness. I have a hard time swallowing at times as well.
