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

Having chest pain but mostly when i lay down, never had heart burn. Could this be heart burn?

Could be: It is common for heartburn symptoms to occur when lying down. This can present as chest pain. If you have other cardiac risk factors such as , family history, obesity, high blood pressure, smoking, or diabetes you should seek medical attention to rule out a blockage in your heart.

Chest Pain: I understand your concern about chest pain for 9 months Thank you for being honest about smoking for11 Years Smoking can cause chronic bronchitis Bending and lying down particularly right after eating can make GERD symptoms and discomfort worse which can also become worse with stress See your Physician for diagnosis, have Lab tests, X-rays.Discuss treatment for smoking effects, GERD and stress

I just tptook 40 mg and still having chest pain and bp us high 168 over 120. Laying Down. How long till it goes diwn?

Depends: Not sure what medicine you took and different meds will take longer to work. If you have been having chest pain associated with an elevated blood pressure that is not a symptom you should be managing yourself at home. You should be evaluated in the emergency room to determine if the pain is related to damage to the heart muscle.

There is chest pain in my rite side of chest   which rediates to rite side.Pain does not feel while laying down and when i wake up in the morning.?

Unclear cause: If pain alters with position change or with deep breathing, potentially could be pericarditis (inflammation of the skin around the heart) or muscle/skeletal in the rib/chest wall. More worrisome causes could be a pulmonary embolism (clot in lungs) or problems with aorta, or blockage in your heart arteries (although given your age, the others may be more likely). Your doctor can assess this.

Chest pain that radiates to back, cough, congestion, headache, hurts to take a full breathh and hurts worse when laying down.

Chest pain that radiates to back, cough, congestion, headache, hurts to take a full breathh and hurts worse when laying down.

Pericarditis: Sounds a lot like pericarditis, which is an inflammation of the sac that surround the heart. A lot of time it is secondary to some other infection, like bronchitis. Could also be pleurisy, which is an inflammation of the lining of the lungs. I'd get checked out by your doctor to be sure.

Severe left chest pain for 2 days now. Not responding to antacids. Hurts to move as well as breathe. Worse when laying down. How to manage this?

See doc: Your symptoms are suggesting pericardial inflammation, among others. Ibuprofen 400-600 mg, if tolerated, may work better, but you need to have your condition diagnosed properly. Seek immediate medical attention.

I am experiencing chest pain or discomfort (feels sharp or stabbing) (worsened by: sudden movements, laying down, sitting up) What could be the cause!

Since: movement seems to aggravate it COSTOCHONDRITIS an inflammation of the tiny cartilages which allow the chest to expand (they are located between the sternum(breastbone) and your ribs...is a possible Diagnosis! You need a "hands on" exam with your PCP as soon as practicable to make an accurate diagnosis not a "guess" Hope this helps! Dr Z

I have mild shortness of breath, mostly when laying down. I'm congested at the moment, also i exercised too hard and then suddenly had chest pain?

I have mild shortness of breath, mostly when laying down. I'm congested at the moment, also i exercised too hard and then  suddenly had chest pain?

Possible asthma: Respiratory illness can make you shot of breath but at your age a little short of breath is hardly noticable. Being that symptomatic i suggest you see your doctor very soon . If you have a fever and cough this could be pneumonia.
