Extremely unlikely: You probably have read or heard stories about a blow to the chest causing heart stoppage and sudden death. This is extremely rare problem; every case is reported in the media, but only a handful of cases every year in all of North America. Second, the heart stoppage is immediate, not a few hours or days later. See your doctor for reassurance if you're still worried. ...Read more

I get trapped flaulence that causes bad cramps an bad chest pain that goes away after passing wind. Why chest pain? Echo, ecg, holters always normal.

GI vs heart: If pain goes away with passing gas, the source of pain is almost certainly the GI tract and not the heart. Part of the colon (large intestine) is just below the heart so the pain can sometimes be felt in the chest. Echo's, ecgs, and holters will not show GI issues. See a gastroenterologist if your symptoms continue. ...Read more
