115/72 blood pressure having light chest pain no other symptoms what can it be?

Multiple causes: Chest pain can occur for a variety of reasons; ischemic heart disease, esophageal spasm, dissecting aortic aneurysm, mitral valve prolapse, pericarditis, pulmonary embolis, pneumonia, chest wall pain (costochrondritis), pleurisy, etc. Your BP looks good and since you have "no other symptoms" the cause is most likely benign. If other symptoms develop seek prompt medical attention.

Why do I have right sided chest pain? No other symptoms. I haven't been taking my coumadin (warfarin) regularly

Why do I have right sided chest pain? No other symptoms. I haven't been taking my coumadin (warfarin) regularly

See below: Going off coumadin (warfarin) may have lead to a small embolus into the right lung and the only symptom may be chest pain due to irritation of the pleura. It is imperative that you take coumadin (warfarin) regularly. I trust that you are practicing birth control if you are sexually active.

Hello when I've woke up in the morning I get strange palpitations one every couple of mins no chest pain or other symptoms any ideas?

Hello when I've woke up in the morning I get strange palpitations one every couple of mins no chest pain or other symptoms any ideas?

Palpitations in AM: May be from reflux or caffeine (coffee, energy drinks, lots of tea, or cocaine). Check thyroid. As you wake systems are just starting up, may be mal-regulation of vagal tone- (when stimulated should slow heart rate). May consider EKG/ sonogram just to ensure not mitral valve prolapse or hypertrophy. Review medications, f/u with doctor /urgent care

Pain in neck radiates to shoulder and arm no chest pain and other symptoms.... Cause? PCP appt? History: HTN PCOS

Pain in neck radiates to shoulder and arm no chest pain and other symptoms.... Cause? PCP appt? History: HTN PCOS

A strain: This pain is most likely related to strain or overuse. You may not be aware of how or when it occurred. Since you have no other symptoms and are young, I think you can manage it yourself for a couple days: ice (15 minutes 3-4 times/day), then possibly heat, gentle stretching, avoid re-injury, & ibuprofen 600 mg three times a day for just a couple days. If not better, to PCP. Good luck!

I took 20mg of ritalin (methylphenidate) IR. I experienced bad chest pain right after. No other associated symptoms. Was pain caused by high BP or was it an actual MI?

I took 20mg of ritalin (methylphenidate) IR. I experienced bad chest pain right after. No other associated symptoms. Was pain caused by high BP or was it an actual MI?

Ritalin (methylphenidate): Doubt that you suffered a myocardial infarction. Also, can't tell you in retrospect if you had severe elevations of blood pressure. But please do let the prescribing physician/ psychiatrist know about this effect promptly.

I have tingling in my left arm headaches sometimes chest pain I'm stress some other symptoms?

I have tingling in my left arm headaches sometimes chest pain I'm stress some other symptoms?

Stress: Yes, stress can cause a lot of symptoms but chest pain in women can be worrisome due to women commonly having atypical cardiac chest pain. Tingling in the arm sounds more neurological like pinched nerve in neck or shoulder. Headaches are common for stress and many other causes. Putting all together is hard, but could be stress, cardiac, other neurological cause - or more than one. (and others).

What can cause chest pain only when breathing in? No other symptoms, just a sharp pain in the left side whenever I take a deep breath.

Sharp pain: Sharp, shooting chest pain on deep breathing can be caused by a pinched nerve or muscle in the rib cage, a rib injury or muscle strain, inflammation of the lung (pneumonia), inflammation of the lung lining (pleurisy), punctured lung, blood clot to the lung, etc. If symptoms persist see your physician for evaluation. Appropriate tests will be done.

I had all the symptoms of a cold yesterday. Today I woke up with a terribly painful cough (chest pain). Should I be going in to class?

I had all the symptoms of a cold yesterday. Today I woke up with a terribly painful cough (chest pain). Should I be going in to class?

Probably.....: If you have no fever, you likely have acute bronchitis due to a viral infection. Coughing into your elbow will help prevent spread of infection while the bronchitis runs its course in about 7-10 days. Another possible etiology is bronchospasm. If your cough is not improving, or if you develop shortness of breath, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Smoking cessation is also needed.

I'm a I'm a smoker and I'm having sharp chest pain it last about 3 to 4 minutes no other symptoms it comes and goes I can exercise going on for about 30 days?

Depends: Go see a doctor for a work up. Chest pain in a smoker needs an evaluation for ischemic heart disease. Other conditions like gastroesophagel reflux, costocondritis, panic among others need to be excluded.
