I get random mild chest pain on just my left side. Its maybe a 4 out of ten on a pain scale. What could it be?

Unsure: Any chest pain should be eval by a doctor, but the chest pain that usually concerns me is midline dull aching pain that is worse w exertion and better w rest. Can also radiate to jaw or left arm. A stress test may be a good idea. I also like to check a calcium score in high risk patients without chest pain. ...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. However, I still think that it would be a good idea to get it checked out in order to determine your baseline health whether you plan on using again or not. ...Read more

Go see your Dr and: Have an ekg done to screen for heart disease. If it's abnormal, further testing is required- echo and stress test. Generally chest pain in young people is usually related to musculoskeletal and stress or anxiety unless there's a strong family history of heart disease. Only your dr can give u an accurate diagnosis.Take care! http://heartdisease.About.Com/cs/coronarydisease/a/cp1.Htm. ...Read more

What could be wrong if i'm having mild chest pain on the left but my arm isn't num?

Don't be fooled: The absence of left arm discomfort does not rule out a cardiac cause in the presence of chest pain. 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
