Have hypocalcemia, levels low right now, back tightening. Can that be why I am having this intense chest discomfort?
I feel like I have a charlie-horse in my chest and down my arms. I have hypocalcemia and I know that my levels are slightly low right now. Can that be why I am having this intense chest discomfort? It will not go away..I've had it really bad for about 3 days now. There is a tightening feeling in my back too. Please help! I am a 30 year old female with two small boys to take care of!
yes my friend, hypocalcemia can cause muscle aches and chest discomfort. If your calcium is extremely low and you are symptomatic, you should consult her doctor as soon as possible and get your calcium as well as her magnesium and potassium checked. It is unlikely with chest discomfort that you will have heart disease at your age, however there are some rare causes of chest and back pain that can happen in younger women including pericarditis, pancreatitis, and aneurysms, which can cause chest pain radiating to the back. Probably consult the doctor as soon as possible to rule out more serious causes and do not assume it is just because of the hypocalcemia.have a great day.
