Brief Answer: Reports are fine Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. I really appreciate your efforts to quit smoking and give yourself a chance for a better life. I am glad your reports are good. Headaches and chest pain can be a symptom of Nicotine withdrawal. So , you it would go with time. Many a times these symptoms are due to Anxiety. Start with exercises , yoga and relaxation therapies. Alternatively in times of severe nicotine cravings you can try Nicotine Chewing gum like Nicotex 2 or 4 mg. I would advise you following : 1. Chest Xray 2. Hemogram 3. Fasting Lipid profile and Blood sugar. Last but not the least , infact most important , don't live a sedentary life style. Exercise regularly for a better health. If you are overweight , reduce weight. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
