Can feel pulse left side under ribs in sync with heart whn sitting or lying down. Been at a&e last night for chest pain they say anxiety/reflux. Is this normal ? I was examined and doc didn't say anyt

Common.: Anxiety can make you become hyperaware of your heart beating, rapid pulse and worry that they are having a heart attack. Reflux esophagitis can actually cause chest pains . If your doctor examined you and found a problem in your heart, I am sure he would have warned you . Do not be afraid to ask questions and get some explanations. ...Read more

Chest pain 2 weeks Got worse with naproxen now on indomethacin had EKG blood tests & chest xray all normal. pain on left side worse when lying down

Careful, normal does: not=healthy, only common; easily misses what is happening. These tests=commonly done, easier/faster for Doc, yet unlikely relevant to your situation. Careful history & questions from someone knowledgeable & worthy your trust routinely more valuable, including: https://www.google.com/search?q=young%20woman%20limited%20joint%20mobility. Rx'ed meds=only about pain, worsen health; solve nothing. ...Read more

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. ...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
