My husband is having frequent chest pains, what can I do ?

My husband is now complaining of frequent chest pains.. what do I do??
My husband (29) is complaining of freq chest pains for the past week.. Our family had been under stress afor the past month and he had to deal with most of it.. (his mom was severely ill, I had been having some issues with him, his job hunt, and a irritant family member to add to that).. He also said that it increases whenever hez stressed he could feel it more .. Im very concerned.. we would be visiting the doc shortly, but im curious.. Is it possible that he ccould be sufering from a heart ailment? [he has no other symptoms like other pains, pain/numbness in left arm.. etc but i see him rubbing his chest quite often for the past few days] He is a physically fit person, not overweight, abt 68-70 kilog and 180cms tall. Please do let me know if you or someone else have had such complaints... Thank you so much..

At this age the heart attack is the list possibility. Most of the time such pains are due to heavy food, irregular life style, gasses, strain, sleepless nights. But it is better to check with a Doc. If cholesterol is on the higher side the hypertension may cause such pains because of the shrinkage of the blood veins.

my husband has emphyzema and has had a couple of incidents in the past couple years of chest pain, however, his EKG s did not show he was having a heart attack. The most recent of these ER visits did make the Dr. question the results so she suggested he have his pulmonologist schedule a drug induced stress test. The results of that show he has had one or more heart attacks causing damage resulting in 40% of heart function. He will be seeing a Cardiologist in a couple of weeks, what can we expect as a result to this visit.

My husband has been getting what he thinks is chest pain for the past 5 days. He is 60 years old. What he does to help is lay down with a heating pad, take Gas X pills and this usually helps. This happens the same time every day. Between 3:00 in the afternoon until maybe 5:00 PM. After he does his routine, he is better. He did make an appointment with his physician for tomorrow. His doctor said on the phone it doesn t sound like something to really worry about. He has been seeing this physician for many years and has faith in him. What do you think? If there are any other questions you need answered, feel free to ask. Thank you

For the past few months I have had on and off central chest pains and tightness which alters in how bad it is but a heaviness is always there. The past couple of days I have been experiencing pins and needles and shooting pains down my right arm from the shoulder to my finger tips at the same time as my chest pains getting worse. The chest pains are also becoming more frequent. Should I be concerned and are both connected?
