Chest pain: Chest pain can be for various reasons. Heart pain from a clogged blood vesses is usually described as heavy or squeezing. Chest pain that is sharp can be from your heart and this can be from the sack (pericarditis) or valvular pain. Pleurisy can be confused as chest pain. If you have risk factor age, cholesterol problems, hypertension, smoker. Probably worthwhile to check out.
