Some causes of chest pain: Heart failure Heart Disease Anxiety Heartburn Panic Attacks Myocardial Infarction Pancreatic malfunction Disfunctional stomach cardiac sphincter Trauma to chest Nerve disfunction/damage Symptoms can point to almost all of these. WHAT I WOULD DO: go see your family doc and ask him his opinion. Tell him you want a 12 line EKG (to test the function of your heart) Tell him you want a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) like nexium to check the stomach route. Tell him you want a referral to a psychologist (to count out the anxiety stuff). You don't have to do it all, but those are the three root causes of MOST possibilities of chest pain. I wish you the best of luck.

My daughter is 19 years old. Since the Middle of November, she has been experiencing chest pain. She says she wakes up in the morning with the pain. It started right around finals time November 15th. It has continued with several episodes 2 x s a week since November 15. Now this is happening everyday. The pain starts at her left collar bone and goes over to her left shoulder. Then drops down about 5 inches over her heart. She pain also shuts down her left arm and sometimes wraps around her wrist. This occurs when she wakes up. IN November it would stop after 25 minutes. Now it is lasting 1.5 hours. Could this be stress? She has left college this quarter.

Hi, I am 15 years old. I am a female, and I am ppretty healthy. I m really never sick. About a couple months ago, maybe, my chest just started to hurt badly. The pain is in the center of my chest, right between my breasts. The pain radiates to my back, and it kind of numbs my shoulders. It s kind of hard to explain. The pain feels like someone is sitting on top of my chest. It s like I m being squeezed really hard, and it hurts really badly. I have to move around to relieve it, but it only lasts a couple seconds then it s back. It comes and go s at random times, and lasts about 20 minutes. I can breathe, but there s a lot of pressure. Should I see a doctor, or is it normal? Thanks for the help, I appreciate it a lot.

I have been having some type of attacks that we stiff haven't got to the bottom of, I have been diagnosed with ulcer because the zantac helped me lol, then a couple of days later I was taken to the er with the same type of pain which I was diagnosed with biliary colic even though the ultrasound and xray didn't show anything, Then I was diagnosed the third at the er with having a panic attack and that I know wasn't it because I have had panic attacks since I've been around 14 yrs. old. Then I was diagnosed by my family dr. for constipation. lol. These attacks sometimes can be brutal. The pain starts in my back between my shoulder blades, and sometimes it only hurts on the left side and sometimes radiates to right to left but the pain is horrific and painful. These attacks usually cause me to sweat, I feel like I'm having a heart attack because of the pain in my chest, it causes me to burp a lot trying to help stop the pain, I shake because I think its where I'm hurting so bad, and sometimes get the chills, they usually only last about an hour the longest one I had lasted 3 hours. I recently just had another mild attack which wasn't real bad, but every since then I have like stomach acid that feels like it continually flows, I am on Prilosec 20 mg of the morning and zantac 150 mg. at night and have been since this started about 3 months ago. If the dr. presses on the right side of my stomach it hurts, it's like a burning type of tenderness pain that hurts really bad. They have done a hida scan and in the first hour they gave me radio active stuff for my gall bladder to appear but within that hour it did not show, so I had to wait another 30 minutes and finally it showed. Then the second part of the hida scan they gave me ensure to drink to watch how it functions, My family dr. said it was normal. I'm at my whitts end. I don't know what's wrong with me. My belly stays bloated out most of the time, I'm ashamed of when the pain hits because I don't want my kids to see me like this. I'm worried it's my colon since my dad had colon cancer and I have had blood in my stool real heavy for 3 days, went to my family doctor and they took a sample and tested it and said that was normal and since it was bright red it's really nothing to worry about. I just want to find out whats wrong with me. These drs. I think are starting think I'm some type of hypercondriac lol.. any advise would be helpful. Also sometimes that can set these attacks off is like eating something spicy, The other day I drank orange juice and ate a barbeque tv dinner and then had that attack, sometimes if me and my husband get into an argument sometimes that sets it off, or if I have a bowel movement it sometimes sets it off and the last round of antibiotics caused me to hurt. So I don't know what to do.
