I seem to get chest pain right around my heart after eating large meals

I am a 19year old male who plays sports regularly and is not overweight. I seem to get chest pain right around my heart after eating large meals, it feels like sharp little pains. I had a blood test recently for no specific reason but all my fat/cholesterol/electrolyte levels were normal, and i dont know what could be the cause of this. Maybe i have a partially occluded vessel? I would say that i eat okay, not too healthy as i order out about 2-3times per week.

Probably heart burn. Get some antacids like tums. Go see your doctor too to confirm this of course and maybe he can put you on a medicine to prevent heart burn such as prilosec or prevacid. But also recognize what foods in particular trigger an attack and avoiding them will help. For most people triggers are caffeine and fatty or acidic food. Also don't lay down for at least 2 hours after eating. Good luck. Oh and for a quick fix a glass of milk should work too.

I stated having chest pain right at the base of my breastbone and after 11 days and 15 dropped pounds I went to ED. I just had a full cardio workup with stress test and heart is in great shape for a 39 year old male. I have been on Percocet for a while due to a torn labrum in my shoulder and then the doctor put me on Indocin because they thought I had a pinched nerve as well. I don t believe I had a pinched nerve and after 8 days of the Indocin I felt so bad from taking it that I got off of it. The ED sent me to a GI doctor who did an endoscopy and said I have esophagitis and gastritis. Gave me Nexium 40mg and said I would get better. I stopped all pain meds and ate only bland foods and got at little better over a week and went ahead and had my shoulder surgery. After surgery I started back taking Percocet for about 4 or 5days and then stopped. The severe chest pain has come back now and I cant get it to go away. I take Carafate pills 5 times a day and take the Nexium 40 mg first thing in the morning but its been 6 days now and still no relief. Can the esophagitis cause you to feel like you have severe chest pain and how long does it take to go away. I am down 17 pounds in 3 weeks and eating and doing everything I can think to get better. Please advise and thank you for any help.

Hi, I m a 25 y/o male and i work in a call center for 3 years now. I take supervisor calls and there are times when i get irritated for the past 2 months when the left side of my chest(feels like my heart , from my left breast upto its side) will hurt and it usually last for 10-15 mins, there are also time for 2 months now that when i smoke my right and sometimes left chest hurts. I had chest xray, 2-d echo, ecg and stress test and the results were all negative though my 2-d echo states that i have a slightly dilated left atrium . I am taking Vastarel and Polinerv E with lecithin for a week now, as prescribed by my doctor , but just a while ago when i get mad with a customer, my left chest hurt again.

I get severe chest pain after drinking ice tea. Other things can cause this same type of chest pain and occasionally it happens randomly (Obviously not completely random.) It s upper chest pain to the right of my heart. Also another thing not related to the chest pain, my heart occasionally beats a lot harder, not faster, just harder. When it does there s a sore feeling where my heart is.
