Very Mild Chest Pain
Hi, For the past two months, I have palpation, very mild chest pain which is not frequent (once a day may be that too for an hour or so) and light head?
Palpitation/ lt head: May be GERD/ reflux with or without H pylori try ranitidine/prevecid (if H pylori will need antibiotics or may be mitral valve prolapse (check echocardiogram), check thyroid function, check gallbladder, check for Lyme, rarely autoimmune, avoid caffeine, energy drinks, alcohol, consider holter f/u w internist / cardiologist ...Read more
23F, feel sometimes warmth in chest, very mild chest pain that comes and goes + feeling need to take deep breath once in a while. Related to heart?
To add to my previous question. Would very mild chest pain and sometimes pain in arm for a few days be sign of heart disease? Norm Stress/ECHO/HM.27-30
I get shortness of breath when standing up. Sometimes I get chest tightness. And very rarely mild chest pain. I am 18 with normal echo and ekg. Is it cad?
SOB after standing: Could be gastritis. Try ranitidine/ prevecid. Normal echo/ EKG eliminates lots of conditions- abnormal heart wall thickness, mitral valve prolapse, abnormal rhythms. Did you have a stress echo test? That may tell a bit more as you see heart response to stress/hyperactivity. Check PFTs for asthma and tilt table test for autonomic dysfunction like orthostasis or tahycardia (POTS). f/u w/doc ...Read more

What else can cause very mild arm pain mild chest pain and nausea besides a heart attack? I've had discomfort all day but don't want to overreact...
Get checked out: The symptoms you describe could certainly be explained by a heart attack. Not everyone has the "classic" symptoms of crushing chest pain when they have a heart attack. There are certainly other possibilities, but since it is unclear the safest thing to do would be to get evaluated by a physician as soon as possible. ...Read more

Chest pain: This is a significant problem. If you have chest pain you should not be on the phone or the computer. You should be getting checked out. You will need an ekg and some blood work. If your heart is beating fast and you have chest pain go to the emergency room and get checked now. ...Read more

Cardiologist: Your high blood pressure needs attention. More information about your chest discomfort is needed to determine whether it's from the rib cage, heart, lung or esophagus. I recommend a consultation with a cardiologist who will order appropriate tests and start you on an antihypertensive regimen. ...Read more
Not severity: Severity is all but irrelevant as heart attacks can be painless. The single most important feature of angina is that it is provoked by exercise and relieved by rest. That said, a heart attack can come on at complete rest (and often does). If you're concerned, please see your doctor. An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure. ...Read more
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
How long does mild chest pain have to be before a person should start worrying? Five minutes? Ten minutes? More?
Unreliable: Duration of chest pain is unreliable. Quality, location and behavior of pain are more significant. A chest pain whose quality is new or something different to a person, occurring at the area of the breast bone, radiating to the arm, neck or jaw especially when associated with sweating, weakness or dizziness are more worrisome. At best, chest pain has to be evaluated by chest xray, ekg and enzymes. ...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
Perhaps: It is not likely cardiac otherwise, you would not be writing this question. I would say you have gerd or gastritis. At your age. The chances of cardiac etiology is very low. Caridac pain causes nausea, vomiting, radiation to the neck, chin down the arms. Heaviness lasting sometimes less than one minute or even 30 seconds. You will feel impending doom. Have it checked out with your family doc. ...Read more
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
