Possible reasons for very painful chest pain. Very painful to breath. Happens at anytime, usually just standing. BP home check & high during pain175/90?

Need evaluation: By cardiologist.

You are at the age when heart problems present as common occurrence. Although with the elevated blood pressure there may be other issues that needed to be further explored.

You need to have a chest x ray to make sure that you don't have any lung condition that could cause the chest discomfort. I hope that it turns out to be no serious issue. ...Read more

My heart rate (not resting) is 77. I am 19 and a female. I have a squeezing left chest pain, painful shoulders, and nausea. What should I do?

My heart rate (not resting) is 77. I am 19 and a female. I have a squeezing left chest pain, painful shoulders, and nausea. What should I do?

It's likely not a: Hrt attack, try mylanta. It's probably esophageal reflux (heartburn) or possibly anxiety (maybe both). Are u sleeping well at night? Do u clinch your teeth? Significant chest pain is very low probability for a cardiac problem or death at ur age. It would be irresponsible of me to tell u to not go in though. It may b something more significant. ...Read more

What causes fatigue, night sweats, chest pain, red painful wrinkled toes, vitamin D deficiency and leukocytes in urine?

Concerning: Your symptoms are concerning for a number of possible illnesses, and definitely needs to be worked up urgently. I would be most concerned for a possible malignancy, or other chronic inflammatory syndrome. Unfortunately, your multiple symptoms make it impossible, to give a specific diagnosis. However these symptoms are serious, and should be Evaluated and worked up as soon as possible ...Read more

Chest pain. Dull but painful. 23 year old female. High triglycerides. 303 last check up. Could that be causing it?

Doubt it's heart: Though triglycerides are high it is still very unlikely that its your heart. Heart attacks in 23 y/o very very unlikely. However it is obviously concerning you. You should see your doctor and get it looked into. It could be musculoskeletal, reflux, gallbladder, or several other things. ...Read more

I'm having chest pain but it's painful to the touch. Doesn't seem internal. Could a blood clot cause this pain?

Musculoskeletal: If your pain is reproducible by palpation it is most likely musculoskeletal in origin. Depending on its exact location it may involve the intercostal muscles, ribs or sternocostal joints. It is not likely that a blood clot is causing this type of pain. ...Read more

I've been getting a lot of chest pain. Chest pressure also. Weakness, painful back, sweating, shaking and am restless. What could this be?

I've been getting a lot of chest pain. Chest pressure also. Weakness, painful back, sweating, shaking and am restless. What could this be?

Medical attention: If this is new chest pain, please get yourself to an emergency room for an exam. Heart disease can manifest differently in women than men. If your heart shows up to be healthy (and it may well be) then anxiety attacks can also cause similar symptoms. Your doctors will differentiate which causes apply to you. Help with anxiety is available through psychiatrists & psychologists. Be well. ...Read more

Is chest wall pain always painful to pressure?

Usually is: Chest wall pain is generally due to a strained muscle, contused or broken rib, or arthritis/rheumatism of the costo-chondral joints (the attachment of rib to cartilage). Heat, physical therapy, acupuncture and pain relieving drugs are the usual course of therapy. Many forms are self-limited and if persistent, further evaluation is indicated. ...Read more

Am a smoker, getting tar like patches in my sputum for 2 days, upper back pain with painful spots, chest CT normal, can this be cancer?

Am a smoker, getting tar like patches in my sputum for 2 days, upper back pain with painful spots, chest CT normal, can this be cancer?

Back pain: The diagnosis of cancer is typically suspected when there is clear abnormality in laboratory or imaging such as a ct scan. To fully confirm a true diagnosis of cancer, there needs to be a biopsy and review underneath a microscopic to show that there are tumor or cancer cells.

There could be many causes of back pain aside from cancer, including coughing, pneumonia, muscle strain, or arthritis. ...Read more

I have this random chest pain that will come and go every now and then. It happens after being a bit down, but it tends to be extremely painful. Wory?

I have this random chest pain that will come and go every now and then. It happens after being a bit down, but it tends to be extremely painful. Wory?

Need H&P: The etiology of the chest pain is very broad. Given that it is associated with mood makes me concerned about a psychosomatic pathology or an anxiety/panic disorder. That said, these are diagnoses of exclusion because your physician will likely want to make sure your heart is not the problem by doing a history, physical & poss tests. Another common etiology would be musculoskeletal dz. See your pcp. ...Read more

I had all the symptoms of a cold yesterday. Today I woke up with a terribly painful cough (chest pain). Should I be going in to class?

Probably.....: If you have no fever, you likely have acute bronchitis due to a viral infection. Coughing into your elbow will help prevent spread of infection while the bronchitis runs its course in about 7-10 days. Another possible etiology is bronchospasm. If your cough is not improving, or if you develop shortness of breath, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Smoking cessation is also needed. ...Read more

Chest pain centre under where ribs end/ meet, gripping pain very servere lasts 15 minutes goes through into back, hard to move or breathe its so painful.

Not great: First off, and this supercedes anything else I write, that needs to be evaluated by a doctor. The odds are that this is acid reflux or esophageal spasm in a 34yo woman, but a whole host of dangerous problems hasn't been excluded and can't be by any 400 character internet consultation. Take care of yourself. ...Read more

It's extremely painful when I exhale (also when I inhale). Should I concerned about this chest pain?

R/O PERICARDITIS: You may have inflammation of the heart=PERICARDITIS vs inflammation of the lungs =PLEURITIS. Myocarditis is much more serious and can be suggested by an abnormal echo. Often they are post viral. They tend to resolve with rest/hydration /NSAID (indocin) if it persists as course of prednisone may be needed. You need a prompt evaluation EKG/CXR AND LABS.

Chest pain, not always severe, but can be very painful and lock up my chest. Happens after smoking weed and started 3months ago after large bong rip.

Your body is telling: You something. Your lungs and/or heart are not tolerating whatever you are smoking and you are "playing with fire" to keep doing what it wants you not to do. If "locking up my chest" means interfering with breathing, then you are doubly at risk. ...Read more

I woke up today with chest pain on my left side and to my left shoulder down my arm. It's not too painful but is enough to be discomforting?

Chest wall pain: The number one cause of chest pain is not cardiac but chest wall pain. Although a heart attack may come at an early age that would be very rare. There are many risk factors involved such as high blood pressure, immediate family history, smoking and many others. Symptoms could include sweating, nausea, and shortness of breath. Rest your arm, take an nsaid with food. ...Read more

Painful palpitations (long history but never painful till recently). I exercise 3/wk. Should I bother gp? No lasting chest pain only transient.

Yes, bother them: Palpitations, as you know, are distressing but they're not painful. I would be suspicious that something else is going on. For instance, pericarditis could cause pain with forceful or irregular heart beat. Because of your age, an unusual presentation of angina also needs to be considered, even though your spells are brief. ...Read more
