Can allergies cause chest pain?

Can allergies cause chest pain?

Not usually: Chest pain is often difficult to assess because there are so many structures found there, such as the heart, lungs, esophagus, muscle, and bones. Airborne allergies can cause asthma which is sometimes described as pain or tightness. Food allergies are sometimes associated with eosinophilic esophagitis which sometimes exhibits chest pain as a symptom. If you are having chest pain, see your doctor. ...Read more

Chest pain on right side going through to my shoulder. I think it might be that my lungs are congested. I have allergies, but not a cold right now. It can be very uncomfortable to move my right shoulder.

Good: Good morning, I don't know the cause of your chest pain. Don't know your age, gender, smoking history, cardiac history, etc. Although this would be an unusual presentation, I am still going to add information about myocardial infarctions. Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. If you have symptoms suggestive of a possible heart attack, please call 911 and be evaluated. Take care. ...Read more

Hi I suffer from barking cough most often and also have chest pain. But I don't cough after asleep. Chest X-ray and allergy reports are normal. Helpme?

Not enough info: You don't mention other symptoms or the duration of symptoms. Allergy reports - do you mean blood tests? Cough may be due to post-nasal drip, asthma, reflux of stomach acid and other causes. You should have lung function (breathing tests) tests. It may be the time to see a specialist. ...Read more

At times, have shallow breathing w/numbness/tingling all over and mental confusion;sometimes w/chest pain. No anxiety/food allergy/asthma. Any ideas?

Could be anxiety: These symptoms could easily be explained by limited symptom panic attacks, but you need a full evaluation with your physician to rule out other possible causes. Could also be from various types of substance use (you additionally list "type a medication" in your info, but I don't know what that is.) with the "irrational rage" and memory loss, would also recommend evaluation with a psychiatrist. ...Read more

Son has nausea, stomach pain, chest pain, headache, weight loss, lab test all normal except allergy blood test came back elevated, what could this be?

Stomach pain: Allergy blood tests are not very reliable to detect food allergies. I suggest you consult an allergist and have your child skin tested for foods. If an endoscopy has been done ask for the biopsy results to be sent to your allergist, eosinophilic esophagitis can occur in children with allergies. ...Read more

Took Amitriptyline 5 days. Toe joint is swollen. Skin twitches few secs on leg/feet/buttock. 1 time chest pain for 2 secs. Is it side effects/allergy?

Possible: It is certainly possible and thus stopping the drug for 1-2 weeks would be the prudent approach especially when the drug is not a life-sustaining one. If the problem does not go away or improve significantly after 2 wks, will have to look for other reasons. ...Read more
