That said, a heart attack can come on at complete rest (and often does). If you're concerned, please see your doctor. An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure. ...Read more

A chest pain whose quality is new or something different to a person, occurring at the area of the breast bone, radiating to the arm, neck or jaw especially when associated with sweating, weakness or dizziness are more worrisome. At best, chest pain has to be evaluated by chest xray, ekg and enzymes. ...Read more

I did some cocaine and now have mild chest pain over the left side. I won't be touching the drug again but just wondered, should I seek medical help ?

Possibly: It is not uncommon for people to experience chest pain from using cocaine. If you regularly use, I would be concerned about your heart. If it was a one time thing that may be less likely.

Caridac pain causes nausea, vomiting, radiation to the neck, chin down the arms. Heaviness lasting sometimes less than one minute or even 30 seconds. You will feel impending doom. Have it checked out with your family doc. ...Read more

Best to talk to your doctor, especially if there is any effort component to causing the chest discomfort. There are many more benign causes for chest pain other than heart, but talking to your doctor is the safest way to sort it out rather than the wing and a prayer model...I.E., guess and hope! ...Read more
