Chest Pain?

I have been having chest pain for about 4 months now. Ive been checked by the doctor 2 times... Both of which say that I am okay. Blood pressure is fine, urine, and blood itself. Just now I have had 3 sudden really sharp chest pains. They hurt soo bad. My doctor thinks that it is heart burn and that I should take zantac 150 but now I dunno. Any suggestions/answers?
Also I am 15, I weigh 187 lbs and am 5,11. My doctor says I am just a little overweight for my age and size.

youi are not over weight by much so that really would not be the case. if you work out too much may put strain on your heart. I would seek another opinion and possibly get an echocardiogram to just make sure everything is ok.  (+ info)

chest pain?

i've been having some chest pain for about an hour after i get a shower a settle down before bed. it's not unbareable pain but i have it frequently. i had an ekg test and a ultra sound thing of my heart about 5 months ago and nothing showed up. should i go back to the doctor or is this fine?

It could be just stress related. It may be strain or inflammation of the muscles and tendons between the ribs. Anyway, why not visit the doctor for a medical opinion and check.  (+ info)

Chest pain?

I have been getting pain in the left side under and on the side of my breast. I have also been getting a burning feeling in my back andsometimes it shoots down to my arm. It doesn't last, though. It's usualy just a quick burning sensation. However, the pain is getting to me since my mother just had a heart attack and has CAD at 46.

I know none of you can diagnose or tell me what is wrong. But if anyone knows the symptoms of a heart attack, does my chest pain sound at all like a heart related pain?

Women typically have different symptoms of heart disease/attacks than men. Most of the typical symptoms that are advertised were from studies performed on men. We are made differently and present with some different symptoms than men for certain disorders. The symptoms you are describing are significant for women in my experience. You should present to an ER if you have these right now (don't drive - EMS preferably), if you are talking about intermittent symptoms - you should go to your family doctor for an evaluation and cardiac workup. Your family history is significant so error on the side of caution. Take care.  (+ info)

CHEST PAIN !!!!!!!!!?

I've had speed before many times, but about 10 hours (thought the hit had ended) after i had eaten it my heart rate increased dramatically (very randomly) my chest started to become tight, breathing become more erractic and since then i've got chest pain when i breathe in. its the left side of the chest, near the heart. (had it for 1 day now, not severe pain but enough to cause a discomfort). I've never experienced it before and I didn't smoke it, i ate it.



Amphetamines can speed up your heart rate and, at least, exacerbate pre-existing heart conditions. You should seek medical attention immediately. Hopefully you come through this and will never touch drugs again!  (+ info)

What could cause chest pain while breathing in after eating?

I ate a very large meal about 45 minutes ago, and am just now experiencing some chest pain that occurs when I breathe in. Other than this chest pain, I don't have any other apparent problems. I feel a little indigestion, but that's it. The pain is sharp and localized in the center of my chest and occurs only when I inhale a certain amount of air. I checked my pulse and that was a little bit fast also, but that might have just been panic because of the weird pain I was feeling.What could cause this?
I must state that the large meal I ate wasn't as healthy as usual, so it could be acid reflux, but I'm not sure if breathing has anything to do with that.
Also, the pain has stopped completely now. The episode lasted for around 10-15 minutes I think.

I did the same thing when I had a tooth extraction and hadn't eaten anything solid for days - I had chest pains so bad I thought I was having a heart attack - turn out to be indigestion - with a full stomach pressing on the diaphragm - never did that again - I would start eating healthier food and smaller portion to avoid this happening again - but if this happens again it could be a hiatal hernia and would seek medical advice  (+ info)

Can you have Chest pain and problems breathing from a muscle strain?

I had been on bed rest for about 2 weeks. I noticed when I take showers or walk in a store and such I get chest pains and can't breathe properly. My doc says it is a strained muscle from inactivity so long does chest pain and problems breathing go in the same category as chest muscle strain? I have never heard of this. The chest pain stops almost instant after I sit back down. Any ideas?

What does constricting chest pain to the upper right of the chest mean?

I'm asking this question for my Dad whom is having constricting upper right chest pain and doesn't know how to read it as he has never experienced it before. What does that sound like to you?


Could be anything from a pulled muscle, heartburn (acid reflux) to even a pinched nerve in the neck/back (cervical spondylosis). But for a proper diagnosis, he should see a doctor. Good luck!  (+ info)

What's the difference between liver pain and right chest pain?

I feel pain around my right chest. Would that be liver pain? What's the different or major difference between liver pain and chest pain?

If the pain comes after eating, I'd say it's more likely a gallbladder issue and not a liver issue. This is definitely something to speak to your PCP about or a gastroenterologist if you have one already.

A HIDA scan w/ CCK was the ONLY test that showed the disease and they ran several on me (including a gallbladder ultrasound w/ cck)

Good luck!


Gallstones - Symptoms

The most common symptom of gallstones is pain in the stomach area or in the upper right part of the belly, under the ribs.

The pain may:

* Develop suddenly in the center of the upper belly (epigastric area) and spread to the right upper back or shoulder blade area. It is usually hard to get comfortable; moving around does not make the pain go away.
* Prevent you from taking normal or deep breaths.
* Last 15 minutes to 24 hours. Continuous pain for 1 to 5 hours is common.
* Begin at night and be severe enough to wake you.
* Occur after meals.

Gallstone pain can cause vomiting, which may relieve some of the belly (abdominal) pain and pressure. Pain that occurs with a fever, nausea, and vomiting or loss of appetite may be a sign of inflammation or infection of the gallbladder (acute cholecystitis). Symptoms that may mean that a gallstone is blocking the common bile duct include:

* Yellowing of the skin and the white part of the eyes (jaundice).
* Dark urine.
* Light-colored stools.
* A fever and chills.

There are many other conditions that cause similar symptoms, including heartburn, pain caused by a heart attack, and liver problems. Stomach flu (gastroenteritis) and food poisoning also can cause symptoms similar to gallstones. Diarrhea and vomiting occur with the flu and food poisoning, but the pain tends to come and go rather than be constant. Also, pain with these conditions may be felt all over the belly, rather than in one spot.

Belly pain that comes and goes (rather than being constant) and that occurs with nausea and vomiting and possibly a mild fever is more likely to be caused by stomach flu or food poisoning than by gallstones. This is especially true if others around you are sick with similar symptoms.  (+ info)
