Can sleep problems cause chronic chest muscle pain? I snore very badly. I am waiting on results from sleep study. All heart tests are normal. Thanks.

I expect so. I'm glad your heart work-up was normal and that you'll be treated for whatever the sleep study finds. It's a prime suspect for the soreness and you'll discover that soon if it is guilty. Consider a carefully planned exercise program to develop your chest muscles with the guidance of the sleep team. I believe they'll know of a good one. Best! Read more...

32yr old, repeatedly reassured by docs that my chest pains are muscle pain/panic attacks, not heart issues. Suggestions re: how to get past this fear?

Evaluation? Ever been evaluated with a stress test, ecg, possibly an echocardiogram? Panis attacks are a diagnosis of exclusion. Recommend a cardiology consult if not done yet.

After weights workout I experienced muscle spasms in my right pectoral muscles for over 24 hours, no indication of palpitations, increased pulse or heart issues. What is the cause or concerns?

Not unusual. Occam's razor states that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one (my paraphrase). Since you are using your pectoralis muscles vigorously, it seems entirely reasonable for that muscle to give you some feedback with fasiculations, fatigue, and/or spacticity under the right conditions. Common sense would dictate that you should "give it a rest", at least till your're better. Read more...
