Balance benefits: Generally, in any treatment you have to balance risks and benefits. Beta blockers should help your symptoms, as will avoiding (or minimizing) stimulants. Quitting smoking sound like a really good idea--in general, as well as in an effort to help your symptoms. Something to consider... ...Read more

I've had chest pain and heart palps pretty much for a mnty. Ekg. Ultra sound -stress test and blood all neg. Dr suggests beta blockers. Appropriate?

Possibly.: A beta blocker might be appropriate if ones heart rate is rapid or if one has premature beats or runs of tachycardia. However, more important is to ask what the underlying problem is causing chest pain and palpitations. A careful evaluation includes blood tests, especially the TSH thyroid test, blood counts for anemia and infection, and a thorough history and physical exam. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with myocardial bridge of lad after going to doctors suffering from shortness of breath chest pain and fatigue. I'm on beta blockers which have only helped a little. When is surgery the best option? It is seriously affecting my job I

Talk To The Experts: After medical treatment has failed (that is, your symptoms aren't improved well enough for you to have a decent quality of life and/or there are signs that something bad might happen at any time) then it's time to consider surgery to remove that little "bridge" of tissue. Sounds like you're not doing so well, so discuss this with your doctor (s). Taking action will minimize worry. Worry doesn't help ...Read more

B - blockers can reduce onsets of chest pain that is effort induced?

B - blockers can reduce onsets of chest pain that is effort induced?

Control heart rate..: Exercise causes the heart rate to go up so beta blockers would be able to control your heart rate to a lower frequency that would usually beat if you were not taking them. What this causes is less oxygen demand from your heart, so if you are having angina they can help control chest pain triggered by a higher oxygen requirement especially if you suffer of heart disease. F/u w/ your doctor on this. ...Read more

So if chest pain episodes seem to be avoided when I take b blockers, may that mean the are related with heart more than with something else?

So if chest pain episodes seem to be avoided when I take b blockers, may that mean the are related with heart more than with something else?

Not necessarily: Beta blockers have lots of effects on the body. Chest pain can have many causes. Just because the chest pain is better with a beta blocker does not mean there is a cardiac problem. ...Read more

34 weeks pregnant doctor started me on topral XL12 mg 3 days ago. Should it cause chest pain and insomnia at night? . Told doc n he won't stop it

34 weeks pregnant doctor started me on topral XL12 mg 3 days ago. Should it cause chest pain and insomnia at night? . Told doc n he won't stop it

It is unlikely for: Such a small dose of Toprol to have any adverse effects including insomnia. Seriously, if you are 34 weeks pregnant it is not at all surprising that you are having trouble sleeping nor is it unexpected to have esophageal reflux causing chest pain. This will all "get better" in about 4 or 5 weeks! ...Read more

Can anxiety cause chest pain and tingling? This only occurs at night right as I'm trying to fall asleep. 7 out of past 8 nights.

Can anxiety cause chest pain and tingling? This only occurs at night right as I'm trying to fall asleep. 7 out of past 8 nights.

Although it' could: It seems a bit unlikely. Anxiety can exacerbate or cause many physical symptoms. Before I would assume it was all what used to be called psychosomatic, I would encourage you to be evaluated by a physician to rule out any physical illness. If you are feeling anxious it would be wise to learn relaxation techniques and speak with a psychologist as well about life issues making you anxious. ...Read more

I'm experiencing chest pain at night, stomach pain, skin burning all over, headache and feeling real shaky. What could cause this?

Not sure: Since all those problems may be independent from each other and don't really fit any one diagnosis. You could have a psychological condition like severe generalized anxiety, but a healthcare provider needs to rule out other diseases before making that conclusion. You should see a healthcare provider for proper workup and treatment. ...Read more

This IS a prolonged: Heart rate recovery time. One of the most important measures of cardiovascular fitness is how quickly your heart rate recovers in the first minute. Slow heart rate recovery may mean you are exercising too intensely. As you suggest, a cool down period may help. This is an issue I would consider discussing with your doctor/cardiologist. Exercise testing with exercise physiologist consult may clarify ...Read more

I've been having chest pain for 4 days & only at night. It is not so much a burning but is in the middle of my chest. I haven't done anything unusual?

See your doctor: Chest pain is never something you take lightly.

I have a chest pain near the center for the past 4 days and worsens when lying down or try to get up, cough, or inhale deeply. Also coughing at night?

Chest pain: These symptoms are most compatible with pleurisy and associated pneumonia, although bronchitis, pericarditis or pinching of intercostal nerve or muscle in the rib cage are possibilities. In any event you should be examined by a physician, even if you have no fever, sweats or chills. A chest xray, complete blood count and possibly an EKG will most likely be part of the evaluation. ...Read more

Past few days been having slow heartbeat left sided chest pain and some jaw pain. Chest is clear ecg is fine blood pressure is fine and pulse is between 60-80bpm. Just feels hot and slow on chest and I get yawning. Mostly at night or afternoon?

Unclear question: You have apparently been evaluated and do not have an organic cause for your symptoms. You may wish to discuss with your doctor that you may be depressed. Depression is not a moral failing but a chemical imbalance in the brain that is treatable.
Wish you good health!
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
