Hi XXXXXX

The chest pain that you are facing while on stress is just a normal variant. It is due to the release of the stress hormone.

Please relax, nothing to worry.

Whenever you get such chest pain, please take several deep breaths, drink cold water and rest awhile. You will be fine.

Just to be on the safer side, get an Electrocardiogram (ECG) done.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more concerns.

Regards,

Hi XXXXXX

Still, there is nothing to be worried about.

Two other possibilities would be gastritis and inflammation in the ribs causing costo-chondritis. The second possibility is more likely in you.

Is there any breathing difficulty, heartburn or excessive perspiration along with the chest pain?

If these are absent, it is mostly muscular. You may take over the counter available medicine like Tablet. Dolo 650mg after food when you have chest pain, for a few days.

However, in my opinion, there is nothing wrong with you.

Take care!

mam if second possibility is most likely then is there any solution to relief from it.

Thanks for writing back XXXXXX

That is exactly what I am saying to you too. I am glad that you do not have any associated symptoms.

As I said, it seems like a muscle sprain. That is why it is paining when you stretch.

Please take Tablet Dolo as suggested.

Give rest to your body for a while. Also, drink plenty of fluids. Please get away from all kinds of stress.

Wish you good health.
