I have chest pain and constantly feel hungry the last couple days. No matter what I eat the pain and hunger won't go away.

No fool chest pain: On the surface this appears not to be life threatening. All things equal, likely is esophageal reflux, heartburn, muscular, costochondritis, chest wall pain, perhaps an ulcer or anxiety. However, initially chest pain lasting more than 1-2 seconds always requires being seen by a doctor until it is determined not a serious, albeit bothersome, problem. This practice saves lives. ...Read more

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

Did you eat too late before you exercise. How is your digestion? Do you have bloating? You may also be vitamin D3 deficient.

Chest pain while running for about 4 minutes last night. Got EKG 2 months ago and all looked fine. It was mild and stopped after I finished running.

Chest pain while running for about 4 minutes last night. Got EKG 2 months ago and all looked fine. It was mild and stopped after I finished running.

Info: Key to chest pain
1) Did it hurt because it was cold outside? Did you breathing hurt?
2) Oppressive chest pain? Radiation? Did it get better when you stop exercising? Has this happened before? Do you have history of Heart disease?

If you are 26, and this has not happened again it is unlikely that it is cardiac in nature. A rest EKG doesn't mean much illiciting ischemia though.

I have digestive issues with IBS. I have had episodes that last a few minutes where I belch frequently and have chest pain in the center of my chest.

Not unusual.: If the chest pain follows belching, it is not unusual. It is probably related to acid refluxing into the esophagus (food tube) that was elevated by gas bubbles. Calcium carbonate tablets (Tums) or simethicone (Gas-X), or both, may help with symptoms. The bigger question is whether or not IBS was confirmed & whether any other problems / treatments were prescribed. Talk to your doctor about you symp ...Read more

I've been having sharp pain that starts from the side my head and travels to my throat and to middle of my chest pain last for one to two minutes.?

? 2 entities: There is no anatomic connection to those 3 areas of the body. It is possible that you're having symptoms of neuralgia (mild inflammation/irritability) of a superficial scalp nerve; and pinched nerve in the rib cage or esophageal spasm. For neuralgia, try TYLENOL (acetaminophen). I feel that these symptoms will resolve without any specific treatment but see your Physician if they persist. ...Read more
