For the past couple of years I seem to suffer upper center chest pain after vigorous exercise. Not really during but after. I do suffer from anxiety, so I've written it off. But, it seems real...

See below:: I agree completely with dr rajput. See the cardiologist. If its not bothering you during exercises, then I think its more anxiety still causing you concerns. I don't think you can write off anxiety completely. Do yourself a favor, let the cardiologist tell you its nothing or something. Good luck. ...Read more

My understanding: chest pain worsening upon exertion can be CAD. If chest pain sometimes present but NEVER during vigorous exercise, is CAD unlikely?

Unlikely...: Usually chest pain associated with CAD occurs upon exertion since this is the time when more workload it is put on your heart and requires high oxygen supply so if there is a clot or plaque obstructing should cause more symptoms during activity. It can also happen at rest but if it happens while doing exercise. A definite answer should be pursued by getting evaluated. F/u w/ your doctor on this. ...Read more
