Detailed Answer:
Dear friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

See a doctor
You have not said of any characteristics of the pain – pain from the heart is oppressing, in central chest (and left), worse on effort, relieved by rest, may radiate to shoulders and arms, associated with sweating and so on.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is not likely. Yet, in suspected heart problem, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably. The most important time is the first few hours. You should see your doctor as soon as possible...
Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found / Happy, if it turns out otherwise
See a doctor / Have examination, ECG & blood tests to exclude any thing important.

Take care
Good luck

What is the cause for persistent epigastric pain. US- neg, and nothing was found on endoscopy. Also have upper back pain. 33 yr old female, non smoker, in good health. All blood work was in normal ranges and cholesteral was good at 130 total. Epigastric region is also tender to touch. Sometimes have chest pain with no SOB. Pain seems to be brought on by stress, eating sometimes, and elevated HR.

For the last 4 + months, my heart has been "skipping beats". I can tell when it happens because it is difficult to breath, I start sweating, I feel dizzy and very weak (sometimes I can't even walk). When I have an "episode" my BP is around 50. My heart never speeds up, it just beats very slowly and skipps every now and then. The episodes leave me feeling exhausted and some days are worse than others. I have no chest pain, I don't drink caffein, smoke, drink, or do drugs. I am 23 yr/old female who has a very healthy life style. These can't be PVC's because I have all these other symptoms, and I don't feel anxious at all. The episodes happen when I am out and about, laying around the house, or sleeping. What do you think is wrong with me??

I am writing this for one of my brother , He is a 41 years old male, not smoker complaining of hemoptysis since 6 months, that started one and half months after pulmonary vein isolation(PVI) for the second time) to treat atrial fibrillation, initially he was on warfarin that was stopped after one month of hemoptysis, but this did not stop the bleeding. Hemoptysis was in form of streaks in sputum. But was stormy pneumonia(2 months after beginning of hemoptysis), amount of blodd increased and sputum became full of blodd for 2 weeks until control of infection with antibiotics. Now the amount of blood decreased to be just small drop of blodd once or twice a day and sometimes streaks of blood with infrequent attacks of chest pain pleuritic in nature and no other respiratory symptoms. High resolution CT was done since one month that showed obstructed left superior pulmonary vein(as complication of (PVI) with two areas of pulmonary venous infarction located on left upper lobe. As per case reports, upper lobectomy was the management. Our question is, is there any other option for treatment ? We have plan to visit any good hospital in India to meet an excellent doctor. please advise for more.
