I have a pain on my left side of my chest. It pretty much goes away when I'm laying down. I also have a headache right in front. What could be wrong?

Brief Answer: muscular origin/gastritis Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query. It pretty much seems like muscular in origin. It could be gastritis as well. I do not think it is related to your heart. Headache is unrelated to the chest pain. I would suggest you to get your blood pressure checked one to see if it is normal. You could take simple antacids like Omeprazole 20mg before breakfast for next 3 days so that the gastritis is taken care of. If the pain is more, you can take tablet Panadol as and when required. I would advise you to take complete bed rest for a day, consume bland diet and drink plenty of fluids orally. You should be fine in a day; nothing to worry. Take care!
