Brief Answer:
Please see detailed answer

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome.
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
Pain in chest due to heart disease is very rare at your age especially when your ECG, echo & stress tests are normal. Chest pain due to heart disease is non localized, squeezing type & increase on exertion.

Chest pain at your age can be simple muscle pain or costochondritis(inflammation of joint between bone & cartilage of chest wall) or gastritis.

Your pain looks more like costochondritis, where pain is localized & feels like some needle pricking in chest.
Still do a Chest X Ray to see for asdociated lung disease.
This condition is treated with pain killer and improves itself within 2-3 weeks.
For such patients we prescribe Tab Ultracet(Acetaminophen + Tramedol) twice daily & Tab Pantoprazole 40mg once daily empty stomach.
Thanks
Take care

Brief Answer:
You don't have to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.
Its good to know that X Ray is also normal. Now you don't have to worry. Their is no cardiac illness.
It is just costochondritis or gastritis.
Continue Tab Ultracet & Pantoprazole as i told you & you will be fine.
I hope i answered your query. If you have any more question, I'll be happy to help.
Thanks
Take care

Brief Answer:
Continue them as before

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.
You can continue your medications as before. They are just for anxiety & will be stopped gradually.
You can follow up after a month to see how you are doing & can continue the necessary medications only.
All the best.
Thanks

Recently I have had a strange feeling going on. About once a day, usually evening right before or right after dinner, I can feel my heart beating, a normal pace about 75 to 80 bpm, but it seems like maybe every so often one beat is harder than others, kind of like beat, beat, beat, BEAT, beat beat...if that makes sense. I have no shortness of breath, chest pain or other physical issues. I am a 49 year old male ,over weight (264 poulds @ 5' 9") As ar as I know chplesterol and glucose are normal, blood pressure was found to be slightly elevated during a recent check up and I take enalapril 10mg twice a day. I also take Alopurinal for kidney stones, It is 300mg once a day. I try to watch my diet avoiding caffeine and too many sweets etc. I probably eat more red meat than I should but thats a work in progress. Thanks for any insight on if this a potential problem o maybe just a little stress or anxiety as a friend said. I might not have mentioned that the hard beats go away after a short time, usually if I get involved in a project or something else that takes my mind away from listening to my own heart thumping away.

Hello. My normal heart rate is about 100 - 120 bpm. I had palpitations occasionally but I never went to see the doctor as I thought it was normal although they usually lasted from 5 to 10 minutes. Last year when I was 24 weeks pregnant, I had a heart palpitation (while I was resting) and my heart rate went up to 240 bpm. It was only after I got injected with adenosine (35mins later) did my heart rate went down to 120bpm. The doctors diagnosed me with an SVT. Due to that, I requested to deliver my baby through C-section. This year, I'm pregnant again and I still go for my scheduled appointments every few months with the cardiologist. Only now he does not think it sounds like I have SVT. This year I will deliver my baby normally but I'm still quite worried about my heart. My question is, if I don't have SVT, what kind of heart condition do I have? I still have palpitations sometimes, my heart rate is never below 100bpm, I always feel fatigued and chest pain and short of breath. Thank you.

Over the last 7-8 years I had recurring chest pain . A series of tests were done including ECGs, stress test, halter test, Percentine perfusion test and CT scan andin late 2011 my cardiologist concluded that the symptoms were not heart related. Over the last two months my symptoms have returned: chest pain radiating into left arm, left side rib cage, chronic headache, sometime severe usually pressure in the ears and around them. Usually I wake up very early in the morning with chest pain, sometime palpitations and headache. Today I had a severe attack of headache as if my head is in a vice. It continues. I suffer from Acid reflux, somewhat hi blood pressure ( highest readinfg 139/ 78; average of last 11 readings 128/72) hi cholesterol, hypo thyroid (TSH up to 21.8). I am on Nexium 40mg, Metoprolol 50mg, Lipitor 20mg and El Troxin 0.075. My Endicronologist is trying to calibrate the Eltroxin dose. He thinks my symptoms are not Thyroid related. I have been trying to get an appointment with my GP since june 25. She is on holiday and the earliest appointment I got is August 17. My symptoms -- chest pain, headache, radiating pain in shoulder blade, sometimes left ribs, pressure in the eyes, ears continue and I think progressively getting worse. I was treated for prostate 8 years ago, monitored annually the PSA has been much below zero, negligible sometime difficult to trace. Sorry for such a complicated story. I do not know what to do. Should I go to the emergency everyday???? Will appreciate any suggestions
