Chest pains on breathing, random, painful episodes, dizziness, cough with phlegm, low pulse rate. Treatment for chest pains?

I seem to have heart pain when I breathe. This only happens when I m lying down or in a similar position but its happening more and more now. It never happened before like this. Occasionally I would get them but randomly and they were painful, but these are really bad. Im 25 and because I m abroad I have had regular health checks for my visas. The doctors say the same thing every time, that my heart beat is really slow but nothing to worry about unless I feel faint. My mother has the same thing, the doctors all say our heartbeats are like the hearts of athletes. I never feel faint but this pain is really worrying me now. Due to the pollution here I ve developed a phlemmy cough that I cant shake, dont know if its related. Thanks

Have your doctors told you that the pain you feel is associated with heart? it could be a pain of cardiac origin, respiratory origin, gastric origin or may be local muscular lesion. A chest X-ray will be the first invsetigation of choice after the clinical examination. Echo to analyse heart function. the pattern of pain you are referring is associated with breathing, so there are chances that you have developed some chest infection so again we need a chest x-ray for that.
The pain of cardiac origin generally is irrespective of position so in my opinion it is not the case, it could be LRTI, or case of excessive flatulence. So kindly consult your physician once again with this set of complaints and if X-ray is already done then we may have to go for more specific investigations like ECHO, MRI, CT-Scan etc. You may consult a Homoeopathic Physican also for the treatment of choice.

Wish you Health and Happiness
