Question: I have chest pain

Answered by Dr. Rishi 1 minute later
Hi,
Since when is the pain?
You should see a Physician and get an ECG and a Chest XRay done and let the Physician examine you. Chest pain should not be taken lightly though it would most probably be just pain due to the muscles or ribs but still better to get it evaluated.

Brief Answer:
If it is left sided or central and is severe you should go to the ER

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
If the pain is central or left sided, it could be due to the heart. And that would suggest that you should get it evaluated at the ER. No harm even if it is a false alarm and the pain is due to chest wall causes or lung problems.
Therefore, it would be safer to see a Doctor at the soonest specially if the pain is severe and there is added anxiety or feeling of giddiness or fainting, etc.
Mostly these pains could be due to sprains or strains of the chest wall but it would be better to be sure.

hello, I was cleaning and working up a real sweat. I bent down to pick up something and when I stood up, my heart felt like it was flopping around. I got freaked out and my anxiety started to really act up. I went to sit down and had a drink of water, trying to cool down, and it started up again for a few seconds. That freaked me out and I had a full out anxiety attack, and started shaking and hyperventilation. Now im freaked out and keep pacing around, im not sure if its going to happen again. With my last pregnancy, i was on metoprolal(spelling) cuz i had heart palpitations frequently and I didnt want it to be anything serious. I had a ultrasound done on my heart in sept 2009, and my cardiologist said my heart structure was nice and strong. I am going through a lot of stress between work and home, and i am currently on .25mg of alprozalom 2 times daily to help with anxiety. But today really freaked me out!
