Is chest pain on the left-side of the body indicative of heart issues?

Posted on Wed, 13 Jun 2018
Question: Hello,

Would left sided chest pain (semi-localized) be a sign of a heart problem, even though ive had multiple EKGs, a stress test, blood work, and a chest xray?

Ive seen a cardiologist and he said that my heart is just a little thicker but that could be remedied with weight loss. Other than that, its fine he says. But when i have these chest pains, i often worry that its cardiac. Ive also had an endoscopy and the doctor didnt see reflux but ive had gastric issues for a while.

Hello Dear

After reading the medical details provided by you I understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that as all your basic cardiac tests were normal so the possibility of having a heart disease is almost impossible.

Kindly upload your ecg and echo reports for me to review them and advise you accordingly. Also I would like to know that dp you smoke or not?

Kindly revert back with required information.

Kind regards
Dr Bhanu partap

I will upload the EKG here in a moment, i need to make sure that i have the current one first.


If i can ask something unrelated, can an MRI (with and without contrast) and/or a CT see inside of the intestines/bowel?

Hello Again

Detailed Answer:
Your ecg is still not uploaded.

Yes both can analyse the bowels. But MRI is usually more useful in case of soft tissue.
