you need to see a doctor right away. if you are having chest pains, you first need a proper diagnosis. it could be signs of a heart attack or it could be signs of acid reflux disease. in any case, don't take any chances. get to a doctor for a complete check up right away.

I am 80 yrs old and good health. I do tradmill every morning for 30 minutes. I walk and run on tradmill. Work 10 to 12 hrs a day on computer. Keep myself very active outside with organisations. I had severe pain a week ago on middle right side of my chest. Got x-rays and my Primary doctor says that I have Degenerative thorax of my upper back. I do not have any pain now. Doctor suggesting to take Physical Therapy. My question is that I do not have the same pain for a week now and if the PT is not going to get rid of it how the PT is helping me. Will Endoscopy get rid of it?Thanks.Prabhat Kaikini

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
