Brief Answer:

Cardiac cause to be looked for first

Detailed Answer:


In case of chest pain, a cardiac cause should always be ruled out first. An EKG should be done primarily.

If it's normal then other causes can be looked for including pleurisy, costochondritis or cholecystitis.

Please go to an ER near you immediately preferably with a relative or friend to get the necessary care in time.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
