Brief Answer:
Can be stable angina.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking query,
Have noted all your details.
Left sided chest pain,associated with neck pain and headache can be presentation of Angina.
I would sugest you to go for some of the base line tests of cardiology like
Tread mill test-An exercise stress test usually involves walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike while your heart rhythm, blood pressure and breathing are monitored,Any ischemia will be ruled out.
2d echo-Mobility of cardiac walls and overall functioning can be observed.
Combined together both these tests have 85% sensitivity in ruling out cardiac problem.
If these tests are normal
Pain can be because of overuse of muscles, muscle strain, or injury to the muscles, ligaments, and discs that support your spine.Poor posture(using pillow and soft mattress while sleeping). Pressure on the spinal nerves from certain problems, such as a herniated disc.
I would suggest you to go for a X ray cervical and thoracic region AP and LATERAL view, to rule out the above mentioned possibilities.
In case all these tests are normal then you should get a neurology consultation for headache and migraine.

Hi, My mom is 54 yrs old. Since 2004 she's suffering from stable angina pectoris..she was hospitalised twice in 2004 itself and since than she's under medication. She faced no problems but 2 weeks ago she was having mild trouble with her increased palpitation but there was no pain. I must mention that in july 2010 she went for a check up where are Nitrocontin 6.4 mg was replaced by Nitrocontin 2.6 mg and her Daxid medicine was replaced by Tonact. Due to some personal problems it is not possible for her to immediately go back for a check up what would be advisable ? should she follow her old prescription ?

MY name is Nasser, teacher, 50 years old, 84 kg wight, 167 cm hight, used to be a heavy smoker amonth ago Family history: nothing worth mentioning except that mother died of brain stroke at age 85. My problem is that one time after climbing stairs from one floor to the next I suddenly felt tight chest and difficulty breathing . Since that moment my life has changed by having what has been diagnosed as stable angina. I undergone catherization procedure and it showed no blocked arteries. My aquestion is : does having the angina with unclogged arteries means that my heart muscle was damaged in the attack I mentioned . Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi, I am diagnosed with stable angina. The doctor prescribed me Vastarel MR and Concor 2,5, I wish to know if this is the correct medication I need? The doctor also talked about a possible surgery. I feel that this a little bit too drastic. Can the prblem be fixed/stabilized only with medication ? I am a male, 70 years old, in perfect physical conditions. Many thanks.
