I am getting a chest pain. Is it a muscular pain or something related to heart ?

I feel like there is an apple stuck in between my breastbone. I went hospital two weeks ago with the chest pain . They did an ECG twice, but they couldn’t find anything wrong with my heart , so they diagnosed me with muscular pain. I was prescribed with naproxen 500mg. I have been taking the medicine for a week, however I discovered that it has many side effects so I stopped consuming it. But I am still suffering from the pain and it feels as if I have a heavy chest. The pain begins when I sit backwards or after I have eaten some food. Often my shoulders begin to ache. For the past two years my period have been irregular, and I am now 42 years of age. I am getting hot flashes and I am wondering if this is anything to do with my chest pains. Also when I press my chest with my hand I do receive some sort of relief. Please help me to solve my problem.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum

This symptom is seen in disorder of the oesophagus ( food pipe)- like hiatus hernia , GERD, refulx esophagisitis. Also seen in psycholgical problems, when someone is going thru stress , anxeity etc...termed a globus hystericus.

As for hot flushed- its mostly a sign of menopause, but bit too early for you....

I strongly feel you are undergoing some stress, which is causing all these symptoms.

Homepathy can help with these problems, safely.

Meanwhile, take small meals, do not liedown /sleep for 2hrs aft food, avoid lifting weights, stooping after meals. TRY to keep mind calm and distracted, which will help reduce stress.
