Chest pain left side near breast for a month now hurts back to aswell as arm feel it more when relaxing also have heavy heartbeat sometimes. Im19 btw?

Chest xray: It is unlikely that you have angina/heart disease given your age and fact that this is constant and for a month. You don't mention breathing, cough, sputum, fevers. Have you had some sort of trauma? Is it positional, reproducible by pressing? You might have pneumonia, or inflammation/damage to major blood vessels or if it is superficial it is musculoskeletal and needs time to heal. ...Read more

Neurologist: A neurologist is most likely regulating your antiseizure medication and could address the question of possible side effects of fatigue,dizziness and fast heart rates. The chest discomfort may be coming from your rib cage rather than the lungs or heart but your primary care physician can check you for that as well as check your heart rate and rhythm. ...Read more

Chest pain left side. Vitals ok, no symptoms other than aching pain on chest. Comes and goes past few hours. What is it? Musculosketal or cardio?

Chest pain left side. Vitals ok, no symptoms other than aching pain on chest. Comes and goes past few hours. What is it? Musculosketal or cardio?

Mgt: It could be either, but if it is reproduced by pressing on the area of pain, it is more likely to be muscular. If you have no history of illness, including cardiac disease and no family history of cardiac issues, then muscular would be more common in your age group. A heating pad or ibuprofen may help to alleviate the pain. A virtual appt can be made online to follow up. ...Read more

Having dull chest pain left side comes and goes but mostly at night when in bed?

Having dull chest pain left side comes and goes but mostly at night when in bed?

Check with your doc: Chest pains can come from narrowed arteries in the heart. However this usually occurs with exertion and resolves with rest. A pain in the chest at night could also be from acid reflux or some other GI problem. Or it even could be from some muscular or rib pain. I suggest calling your doctor for an appointment to discuss further. ...Read more

I have chest pain left side below my heart when breathing in and when lifting anything been there for a week now and getting more painfull. Any ideas?

Probably not cardiac: What you are describing is more likely chest wall (musculoskeletal) discomfort than a cardiac cause. This, of course, requires a real evaluation if the symptoms do not improve with conservative therapies, like rest, local heat, mild analgesics, and avoiding any exacerbating activity. If not improved, contact your physician. Btw, be careful to call your symptoms chest "discomfort", not "heart"! ...Read more

ER: Expensive&Rarely: receive good quality assistance. Primary medical decision maker (physician if you will) is ALWAYS yourself. ERs are high law-suite-rate profit-centers for most hospitals (disease buildings) in which focus is always rapid triage & expensive tests to evaluate for most common, immediate life threatening issues; NOT cost-effective HighQuality outcomes over time. Who defines emergency? Public, Not MDs. ...Read more

How can you differentiate pericarditis symptoms from just severe heartburn? Bad chest pain left side, worse when laying down and breathing in.

Cardiologist: I would recommend for you to go to a cardiologist. He will probably get an EKG and depending on its findings recommend particular managements. Interestingly enough the treatment for pericarditis would worsen gastritis since it is basically NSAIDS. Good Luck C ...Read more
