Hello,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Chest pain may originate from any other part of the body.HEART,SKIN,MUCLES OF THE CHEST,LUNGS,OESOPHAGUS anything can cause heart pain.The stomach or other organ in the abdomen can cause chest pain.Plain antacids and analgesic will releive the pain if caused by gastric troubles.If the pain extends to the left arm and forearm,lasts for long time and is very severe you need to consult your doctor.
General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Hi,
Thanks for query,
It may be due to gastritis and some heart problem.
Go for ECG to rule out cardiac pain as it is an emergency.
If it is due to other cause there is no emergency.
Take Omiprazole or some analgesic.
Ok and bye.

Hi Dr. , This is Debraj Das from Mumbai.I am a 31 yr management proffesional .my working hrs are from 8 am to 6.30 pm and sometimes even more . Last yr I caught the chikungunea fever ,my fever was not coming down 103 for 3 consecutive days.n I was feeling excrutiating pain in my chest and joints ...eventually the joint pain disappeared with the fever but i still have this chest pain which comes and goes time to time . i can feel this sharp piercing pain on the upper right side of my chest specially when i lift something as small as my 3 months old kid .i have seen a pulmonologist here in godrej hospital too where they have asked me for the chest xray and ct scan ...The xray showed -every thing normal except- nodular opacities in right upper n apical zone while the ct scan was suggestive of subtle bronchiolectasis in bilateral lung fields. After going through the reports my doctor said the pain was due to the infection scar left after chikunguniya n it ll remain the rest of my life ...n gave me a topical ointment vovoran emulgel to rub on when required...still the severe pain is there.can u plz help ? n for your concern would like to add that there is no sudden drop in weight, i dnt spit blood and nothing as suggestive for tb ...so that was firstly ruled out by the dr. Waiting for your consultance thanx in advance Debraj

I went to the ER on 6/1/17 with chest pain mostly in the center between my breasts. They ruled out heart disease by doing CT scan with contrast, EKG s, Chest Xray, Treadmill test, ultrasound of heart, blood tests every 6 hours to check enzymes. I was kept over night for observation, but I did notice that the pain nearly went away when I had the IV steroids. I was sent home on 10 mg tablets of prednisone for 3 days only.....4 10 mg; 2 mg; 1 mg. When I finished with the steroids my family doctor prescribed longer use of steroids (10 mg taken 4,4,3,3,2,2,1,1. He felt it would take care of the problem. The chest pains came back once the steroids were out of my system. We decided to try a gastroenterologist,my appt. is 2:30 pm tomorrow, but I am almost 100 percent certain that the inflammation is in the trachea and runs downward which makes a sharp pain when I inhale. I no longer go to a Pulmonary Specialist as I gave up my Cpap machine after using it for 5 years. I could not get a decent night s sleep. What should I do now since I told the Pulmonary Specialist I would not be coming any more. Would I have to get a new Pulmonary Specialist. I don t think the gastro doctor can take care of this. Would I need antibiotics. My oxygen level is 97 or 98 and I have no congestion or phlegm at all and no fever. But I am in terrible pain that goes right through to my back. What do you suggest?

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.

I am a man 40 years old. I walk 9.1 kms every week. Every time I go to the doctor he always tell me that my heart is smooth. When I tried ECG it was perfect. However after I masturbate I get chest pressures. After 24 hours everything becomes normal again and I become a healthy man.

Is there anything wrong that I get chest pressure after I masturbate?
