About

Bio

Hi! My name is Nantida. I was born and raised in Thailand. My family background is in the business but I had my calling in Medicine when I was in junior high school. I went to Siriraj medical school in Bangkok, Thailand. I became the first doctor in our family. After graduation, I practiced in the rural area of Thailand for few years. I decided to pursue my dream by coming to the USA where I had my training in Internal Medicine at MetroWest Medical Center in MA.

Pattern of pain: It may be easier to differentiate the pleuritic pain from heart attack pain. However, it is quite difficult to differentiate between heart attack and heart spasms. Typical pleuritic pain is described as sharp pain that worsen with breathing. Commonly seen in pneumonia, viral infection, etc. Typical heart attack pain is described as pressure liked, "elephant sitting on the chest" type pain.
