Can sinus tachycardia cause left chest pain? Is it safe to take Tylenol and Ibuprofen and meds with caffeine in them with having sinus tachycardia?

Sinus tachycardia: Will not cause chest pain if you have normal coronary arteries but chest pain can cause sinus tachycardia. Tylenol or Ibuprofen as directed on the bottle are safe to take but caffeine containing medications might increase your heart rate. Sinus tachycardia is a physiological response to something else going on in your body. Identify and treat this and the sinus tachycardia will resolve. ...Read more

I have chest pain, but only at the right side. Is exercising at the gym, and supposedly a muscle issue a good explanation?

I have chest pain, but only at the right side. Is exercising at the gym, and supposedly a muscle issue a good explanation?

Yes: Yes, at 21 years of age and exercising at the gym, it is very likely this is simply a muscle pull. Things that would make this more likely include if it is tender when you push on it and when you stretch the muscle. I would be more worried if these things are not true, or if you have other risk factors - such as a strong family history of early heart disease, smoke, etc... ...Read more

Can acid reflux give you chest pain that also is in your back? No other signs of symptoms. It is accompanied by good coming back up.

Can acid reflux give you chest pain that also is in your back? No other signs of symptoms. It is accompanied by good coming back up.

Esophagus: GERD causes heartburn and sour eructations but spasm of the esophagus is what causes upper midback discomfort as well as pain in the front of the chest. Prilosec type medications relieve the acid reflux symptoms, but an esophageal spasm may be helped by drinking a glass of water. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to advise you about these symptoms. ...Read more

For about a year and a half I have been getting mild, to sometimes moderate chest pain. Went to ER 3 times and ekgs were always good. What's wrong?

Sched appt w/ Dr: Chest pains can be caused by many things besides the heart. Ekg's can miss problems if it is intermittent. You should schedule a real appointment with a doctor. The emergency room is not the place to go to figure out a chronic problem. Their job is to take care of acute problems (emergencies). You need someone who can follow up and get a detailed and accurate picture of what's going on. ...Read more

Just went to e.r for shorth breath and chest pain X-ray cheked out good I'm still a liltle short breath not as much, can it be bronchitis what I have?

Depends: Shortness of breath and chest pain in a 22 year old is worrisome. If you have a cough with increased sputum production, I would say yes to bronchitis. However, if you have no cough and no sputum it could be something else, including anxiety. You would need further evaluation if your symptoms persist. ...Read more

I go to ER evry saterday or sunday for past year with chest pain on wekday I see 3or more doctors just so they can tell me evry thing looks good sad?

Talk to a therapist: Or a psychologist about why you don't believe repeated reassurance that your chest pain is not a medical condition. Your chest pain could be anxiety or a psychosomatic condition. Doctors have probably already told you that. Repeating the same ineffective pattern for a year is clearly not working. ...Read more
