Does smoking cause chest pain ?

Hi, I am a 33 y.o. female. I have had pain on the left side of my chest for a/b 5 months now. I am a smoker. Doctor did an ECG , and chest x-rays; all normal. I notice the pain the day after I smoke more than normal; about 1/2 a pack. Doctor thought it could be more anxiety related because I have had major life shifts/loses this year. Any suggestions?

Welcome to HCM.
As the doctor has done the necessary investigations and found everything normal, most likely it must be muscular pain augmented by your stress full period.
Smoking of course is harmful to your life and is not a treatment for the stress in our life.

If the chest pain is accompanied by dry cough, it may be an allergy to smoke. in that case you have to get your blood count ( TLC ,DLC ) done.),& take nessesary treatment from your doctor.also try to get rid of smoaking.
If it's only pain ,It's likly to be muscle pain &will be alright with pain killer like butaprixivon at bed time with a glass of milk.
