Could heart disease cause chest soreness to go on for over 2 months? In a overall healthy 26 year old FEMALE, having chest soreness, not pains, just all over soreness for over 2 months, could that be heart issues? She is going to the doctor July 3rd...she had insurance issues that were really messy, but are finally clearing up. At any rate, she quit smoking around this time as welll. The chest issues started a couple weeks after quitting. Also, if you push on her chest, the pain is worse. It is a little scary. Does anyone know the odds of this being heart related? Also, any other suggestions of what this could be? Not looking to diagnose her, just eeze her mind til she can get into the doctor. Anyone know what she can expect at teh dr? Thanks. As requested, I am giving more information. The pain is constant. It can come with her doing nothing at all, and is not made worse by doing anything like walking or any exercise. It is just pretty much always there. The soreness is all along the front of her chest. Sometimes her shoulders and neck will feel tense as well. And often times, if you push on it, it will feel worse. Any suggestions appriciated. Hope this is enough detail.
