Hi,

The description sounds like airway issue. It may be partial block of the stream of air right from the lower level of airway to the level of larynx. That produces the hissing sound. The chest pain can be related to heart or lung /airway related.

Lining of the heart (pericarditis) can recur and present it the same way and very short lived (6 to 8 sec) This is specially true for one with frequent infections / allergies / asthma. It is ideal to test if the frequency of the pain increases. Yes you should go for 2 D ECHO and blood counts with ESR first.

Let me know if you have further concerns.

I live in Bangalore, recently I went to Chennai were I was severely affected and on 2nd June I visited a doctor who gave me medicine and I had to return from the station on 3rd june, since I had dizziness, severe cough but not temp. I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.
