Tightness In Morning Or Night Chest
I have a tightness/pain in the upper left side of my chest this has lasted about 6weeks now and has become very frighting. It is most painful in the early morning or late at night or after a strenuous activity.
This : This sounds like angina. Angina is characterized by chest pain or chest discomfort that occurs when an area of your heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen. This is a dangerous situation because it can be a sign of an impending heart attack. You need to see your doctor right away for a chest pain work up. This will include a detailed history, physical, and necessary testing (including an ekg). From there, your doctor can decide on the next step.

Dis Be Goin' Aroun': Yep. Sounds familiar. Not the flu but some other hateful virus. Cough cough cough cough...can cause some wheezing too (that feels tight and leads to prolonged expirations). Most folks get over this in a week or two. Some get very sick, so if this gets progressively worse, head for an Urgent Care or ER.

Quit smoking 4 days ago and am now coughing, is this normal? Wheezing at night and chest tightness in the morning stopped the first day i quit.
Yes: It is quite common for cough and wheezing to increase after smoking cessation. The hair cells that line the resp. Tract wake up and start working, moving all the junk that you have accumulated in your airways. This can go on for several weeks, but tends to improve within a month. Stick with it! take adequate fluids to allow your lungs to liquify the mucus and get it out. Try support groups. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I lately have upper chest tightness in the morning . It goes away with exertion. I am 55, 300 lbs (I know), 5'10" and hard farmworker & separated.
Given status, angina: is a high possibility. Good that you feel better with exertion but a large heart attack would dramatically change your capability & most are asymptomatic. Study my answers, optimize NMR lipoproteins (LDL <400-700 nmol/L, Large-HDL >9 ?mol/L, https://goo.gl/1nvgER ), HbA1c to <5.0%, usual sitting Systolic BP <120 mmHg. Avoid Stress Tests: they miss problem & ? risk of driving heart attack. ...Read more
