Many causes: Possible causes include problems with your spine, to the lining of your lungs, to your food pipe (esophagus) or even inflammation of the lining of your heart (pericarditis).

I have had chest pains at night for the past 2 nights I have the feeling food is stuck in throat and twitching in my abdomen now I see blood in stools?

See your doctor: When you are on Coumadin (warfarin) and have blood in your stool, you need to report those symptoms immediately to your doctor. You need to see what your inr and hematocrit (blood level) are. Chest pain with a feeling like something is stuck in the throat is usually worked up by having a barium swallow, or, more likely in your case, an endoscopy where the GI doc looks in your esophagus and stomach. ...Read more

Last night was the second night that I had squeezing chest pains. I only happens at night but not every night. Could it be warning of a heat attack?

Last night was the second night that I had squeezing chest pains. I only happens at night but not every night. Could it be warning of a heat attack?

Unlikely but...: Many things can cause squeezing chest pains. Heart attacks are extremely rare in 19 yo women. However, spasm of the esophagus caused by acid reflux can cause identical symptoms and is MUCH more common in young women. Thus it is much more likely that this is related to esophageal spasm than a heart problem. It would be wise to see a doc to evaluate. Also see http://tinyurl. Com/p88fxjm ...Read more

Have H. Pylori reckd: If you had a history of h. Pylori, and it wasn't treated fully, then you may still have problems with gastritis.

My husband always complains about chest pains, also at night I noticed that he stops breathing he also says something about his knee has this pain alot?

Chest pain, see MD: There are many possible reasons for chest pain; the most concerning are heart-related. He should see a doctor about this, and if the pain is severe, call 911. If you notice that he stops breathing when he is asleep, this may be apnea, most likely obstructive sleep apnea, and a sleep study will help diagnose this. Left untreated, this can cause more serious problems later. ...Read more
