Burning sensation through upper chest, pain in armpits and shoulders for the last couple of days I have had a feeling of heaviness in the left side of my chest along with shortness of breath. I seen my doctor about this and he believes that it was caused

The : The symptoms you describe are typical of a heart attack or inflammation around the heart (pericarditis) - they can also be caused by anxiety and hyperventilation. So yes, it could be serious. Key items for revealing if there is a heart problem would be an electrocardiogram (ekg) and blood tests, perhaps an echocardiogram (looking at the heart and pericardium with sound waves). If your doctor has done the tests described, check with him again to see what else could be causing the problem. If not, it could be best to seek another opinion. ...Read more

If : If you have not seen a doctor yet, then it is a good idea to seek care very soon. If your pain is increasing in intensity, you are experiencing shortness of breath, or heart palpitations, a visit to the urgent care or emergency room is in order. Your symptoms could very well be manifestations of your ptsd, especially if you are experiencing an increase in triggers.On the other hand a cardiac cause, as well as other medical issues need to be ruled out. Take good care. ...Read more
