You should definitely get this checked out. You shouldn't have chest pains ever. having the pain is a sign of something.
Cardiologist Dr. Naresh Ruparelia's  Response
Hi well come to HCM
Any chest pain related to exertion need to be assed. Carrying heavy shopping is kind
of exertion and getting chest pain on it requires attention. Better consult your doctor
and if suggest get done ECG, and if required TMT. Take care. Thanks

I had a fundoplication and hiatus hernia op 4 months ago. I have been having a pain in the middle of my chest which gets worse if I bend down, run, walk fast or carry any shopping. It seems to be getting worse. (It feels heavy, like a weight or sometging lodged) I sweat more, and in the last 2 weeks developed a cough that I have never had before. I also have a constant ache about 3 inches (and a little to the left) below the chest pain. Could this be related to the operation and should I see my doctor?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
