Tightness in center of chest n left side under armpit near heart, burning in groin/legs n pain in back/lungs what could these symptoms b caused by?

Multiple causes: There is no age listed which could help a bit in differentiating cardiac pain from muscle ache. I think no matter what you should see a doctor get a chest x ray as well these can come from a number of causes. Of course heart pain but it could be inflammation around the heart, a pneumonia etc I would see a primary as well as a cardiologist. ...Read more

CP...yes!: To me, CP is CP until otherwise ruled-out (for a heart attack). If you haven't seen your md & had an ekg, do it! women present differently than men. If you have a family history of heart attacks, it's even more urgent to see your md. He will probably want a cardiac stress test, blood, & an ekg. Do you smoke? Have high bp? High cholesterol? Diabetes? These are very important to know. See your md! ...Read more
