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

Fatigue (severe) Absence seizures Pressure in head Spinning sensation Rapid heart rate Chest pain (left side under breast) 16 years old. Please help?

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?

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

Doctor can evaluate: New chest discomfort or pain, and difficulty breathing, are signs that that she should talk with her doctor right away or go to the ER.

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

been to gp for appointment- chest pain (Left side) & shoulder pain. He gave me antibiotics. But I feel it isn't doing anything. What should I do doc?

Tough one: Because you are on Immunosuppressants, gp was concerned about pneumonia, which is usually accompanied by cough, phlegm, and fever. Can't tell from what u say what u have. So many causes of chest and shoulder pain. Most obvious thing for you would be something related to RA. If it hurts when u move your shoulder this would be yet more likely. Best wishes.

Taking Lithium, Welbutrin, Lamictal, Dr. Says HR around 120 last few visits. I have occas. Chest pain left side, heart occas. Has rumbly feeling. Ideas?

Rhythm Monitoring: Would discuss chest pain with your doctor to help determine if further testing is required. Heart rates can be elevated for lots of reasons and an ECG or home monitor can be very helpful in determining the reason for the high heart rate. Treatment would then be directed towards the underlying cause. Having a heart rate consistently over 110 beats per minute should be further investigated. ...Read more
