Chest pain below left nipple, Left arm pain. Various painful twinges going on 2yrs. ECG/blood/X-ray/ct/stress test/gastro scope/ultrasound ok, ideas?

Not heart

This sounds like musculoskeletal pain. At age 26, it's not likely to be your heart. With pain in your left arm and chest, it could be coming from your neck. There are nerves that exit your spinal cord through the vertebrae in your neck. If these nerves are compressed, they can cause arm pain. Do you do repetitive motion (like weight lifting?) Left handed? Observe what you do with your body!

Thanks docs, one more question. I have painful chest pressure when I jog, but when I had my stress test I didn't jog enough time to get the chest pain?

Chemical

Chest_pain
If you cannot do the prescribed activity for an exercise stress test, you can have a chemical stress test where a chemical makes your heart beat faster (like it would if you were exercising).

Can Troponin levels elevate due to stress, anxiety and such and cause chest pain but will not cause a heart attack?

No

Chest_tightness
Stress and anxiety do not typically raise troponin levels. Medical conditions such as severe high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, renal failure are associated with elevated levels of troponin. Elevated troponin is not the cause of heart attack, but can result from one.

Dr. Miroslava Fox answered:

How do you know if your chest pain is anxiety related? I've had chest pain for 3 days but am under a lot of stress due to a breakup, moving out & work

You don't

While the chest pain might be anxiety related, you need to rule out anything medical at first. Contact your primary care provider ASAP or go to the nearest ER. Good Luck!

Dr. Victor Bonuel answered:

What can cause chest pain triggered by stress or anxiety?

Many possibillities

Chest_tightness
Possibilities include muscular pain,cardiac,psychological or stress itself. Go see your DR for an EKG and blood test which will test for diabetes, kidney, liver ailments and cholesterol level. If there's strong family history of heart disease, your DR may recommend a treadmill to rule out coronary artery disease. Take care.

Dr. Abby Caplin answered:

Possible to have chest pain triggered by stress or anxiety? What to take for it?

It's possible

But first you must rule out significant illness by seeing your primary care practitioner. You may need an evaluation by a cardiologist. Once it has been determined that stress/anxiety is the trigger of your symptoms, there are many things you can do to help yourself! Anxiety is often triggered by thoughts, beliefs. A psychotherapist, counselor or mind-body medicine practitioner can help you.

Had a normal stress test and echo a few months ago and was normal. Still having palps, and chest pain. Could something been missed or my anxiety?

Yes.

Chest_tightness
These tests are inadequate for women. You need to explore further. A better option is having a session of multifunction Cardiogram. Good luck! http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multifunction_cardiogram
