Have chest, ear and jaw pain. I am overweight. What could it be?

Well I ve been to the emergency room twice and they ve found nothing. I m 27..female..I ve quit smoking 2 and a half weeks ago..I m overweight . I suffer from constant chest pain once in awhile it goes away. Now my ear hurts and the jaw by the ear..though it stopped. My left forearm always feels weird. I know these are all symptoms of a heart attack...yet the er always says its just chest wall pain. What could it be?

Internal Medicine Specialist 's  Response



In chronic and heavy smoker , chronic tonsillitis is a known factor with no sore throat , only myalgias(muscle pain) and bony tenderness . You may have a review of ENT specialist for confirmation and treatment.

As you have said you are over-weight , young female then Cushing syndrome may be cause of your symptoms

In cushing , people are overweight and may have the symptoms of neuropathy , heart vessel vasospam ( intermittent ) and myalgias.You may have a review of internist.

Hope this helps.

Take care
