I am 30 years old and I have been experiencing swelling in my hands, chest discomfort, and body aches. Could this be signs of heart disease?

No. Heart disease does not cause swelling of the hands. More likely you have fluid retention related to hormonal influences. Body aches are a common complaint and non-specific. If they respond to Ibuprofen or naproxen, no further evaluation is indicated. Otherwise, a rheumatological diagnosis should be pursued. Best wishes, Elizabeth.

Slight chest discomfort when playing basketball. I do have mild asthma but never wheeze. I had 4 clear ekgs, should I ask dr. For stress test? No family history of heart disease. Normal cholesterol.

It's your call. You can probably tell better than anyone whether your chest discomfort is chest-wall pain from the body movements of the ball game, cough-variant asthma (i have this and recognize the discomfort in the chest it can cause on exertion), or the real, fear-inducing pain of coronary disease. I'm assuming you have no heart murmur to suggest hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and are cocaine-free. Read more...
Maybe. A stress test at your age can be misleading. It is less accurate in women than in men. It may still be a good option. You should discuss your symptoms with your doctor before deciding the next step. A good history and physical examination can often help determine the source of the pain and/or the best way to determine the cause. Read more...
