Doctor :   There is a disease called called Aortic Dissection
Doctor :   In that Aorta will be wider
Doctor :   That causes severe chest pain
Doctor :   But chest pain after assurance from your cardiologist is not from Aortic Dissection
User :   i see
Doctor :   So When your cardiologist say that the chestpain is not from Heart u have to trust him
Doctor :   Dissections is very severe emergency problem
Doctor :   It is not a chronic problem
User :   can wider aorta produce any sounds when stretching or spreading after getting up from bed?
Doctor :   So bottom line, the wider aorta is not the cause for chest pain.
Doctor :   no
