Dull pain in upper right chest could this be a result of stopping pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or taking my adderall? Should I be concerned?

Chest pain: Please get an exam right away. Stopping [ristiq unlikely cause. Over use of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) may be a culprit. Bottom line: need a thorough exam to rule out cardiac.

Doctors think I may have SVT is it normal with SVT to have intense L sided chest pain followed by dull pain for a few days after, almost weekly.?

They should know: If you have SVT they would know if they have access to your heart rhythms. Sustained rhythm disturbances can cause issues including chest pain from not enough oxygen to heart. 220 - your age is max heart rate. If beneath that speed at your at you really shouldn't be having significant chest pain. Young girl with that I would think about Wolf-Parkinson-White

Chest pain needs to: Be evaluated by your doc. It MAY be simple muscle tightness or something more but a doc needs to make that determinations. The presentation of cardiac issues w/women is different from that of men so please don't look on the net or talk to well meaning folks because it may be mis-information. Peace and good health.

Left chest pain, md says it is not cardiac. Pain described as constant dull pain with intermittent sharp severe pain like lightning. Suggestions?

Chest Pain: Does it hurt you anywhere on yr left chest on touch? What activities cause you pain? Any EKG? Likely muscular or costochondritis if cardiac work up is negative.

I get a sharp, stabbing, dull, aching chest pain and I can't breathe when this happens. Also get light headed when this happens? The pain is intense.

Chest pain: Chest pain and shortness of breath means you need to go to an emergency room now. There are lots of possible causes including coronary artery disease, pneumonia, pericarditis, pneumothorax, gastroesophageal reflux disease, costochondritis, rib fracture, panic attack, anxiety... The list keeps going. You need to see a doctor.

Chest pain, nasal congestion, distorted vision, headache, waves of nausea, sharp pain lower right abdomen, dull pain lee right back, thoughts?

Complicated: There is not likely to be any one single diagnosis that ties all your symptoms together. Right lower quadrant pain always raises the question of appendicitis which always has nausea associated with it so you should be examined today to rule that out (or confirm it).

What could cause aching chest pain?

What could cause aching chest pain?

An Achy Breaky heart: Just kidding, couldn't resist w/ that set-up! Seriously, there are many causes of chest pain (CP) but anterior CP is usually caused by 4 diff etiologies. 1. Cardiac. Heart etiologies are usually triggered by activity. 2. Pulmonary. Usually it is a sharp, pleuritic pain w/ inspiration. 3. GERD. Acid reflux usually causes burning. 4. Chest wall pain. From aching muscles. So need details

My 24yo bf is having slightly minor aching knife like chest pain in the middle of the 2pecs. It happens at least once a day for at most 5min. Help?

Can't tell: The good news is the chance that a 24 y/o man of having a heart attack is very very small. It's most likely musculoskeletal. However I would get it checked out. There are other possible diagnoses but we can't examine him, get a detailed history, or run tests if needed.

See your physician.: Unfortunately chest pain symptoms cannot be explained without an in-person evaluation by a physician. If it is worrisome enough, either go to your primary care physician or the er.

Immediate response sever chest pain left side aching constantly dowager ia and not feeling well at all please respond quickly?

See a doctor: If you are young and have no medical problems and the pains only last a few seconds they probably are not dangerous. If you start to have shortness of breath, get drenched in sweat, have nausea or vomiting, get dizzy, or the pain remains constant for more than 20min you should probably see a doctor.

Chest pain left side. Vitals ok, no symptoms other than aching pain on chest. Comes and goes past few hours. What is it? Musculosketal or cardio?

Chest pain left side. Vitals ok, no symptoms other than aching pain on chest. Comes and goes past few hours. What is it? Musculosketal or cardio?

Mgt: It could be either, but if it is reproduced by pressing on the area of pain, it is more likely to be muscular. If you have no history of illness, including cardiac disease and no family history of cardiac issues, then muscular would be more common in your age group. A heating pad or ibuprofen may help to alleviate the pain. A virtual appt can be made online to follow up.
