How to discriminate angina decubitus from Gerd? Both happen when someone is lying down and have similar symptoms?

Testing: This is why chest pain is serious. As both can mimic each other. A trained history, physical with appropriate testing is sometimes the only way to decipher the two. I would get checked immediately at the emergency room. Good luck

An interventional cardiologist is best suited to answer your question.

Why does angina causes pain in the chest and arm?

Why does angina causes pain in the chest and arm?

Common nerve roots: The pain fibers in the spine innervate areas of the body (dermatomes) in relation to their proximity to the spine during development. The heart, upper chest and left arm develop with the same set of nerves. When you get angina, the heart hurts and co-stimulates the nerves of the arm and upper chest. Always keep in close contact with your cardiologist if you have this.

Are Sympathetic Nerve Blocks effective at calming the sympathetic system which causes angina and migraines? If not, why not? Would seem logical.

Are Sympathetic Nerve Blocks effective at calming the sympathetic system which causes angina and migraines? If not, why not? Would seem logical.

The key here: Is that you have to be able to inject the specific nerves that are causing the problem such as in the neck, low back, arm for regional pain syndromes. One doesn't have access to the sympathetic nerves inside the skull causing the migraine or supplying the coronary arteries along the heart surface that are causing angina.
