Severe chest pain, can you please help

Hospital has no clue what this is, can you please help me ? My mother woke up this morning with severe chest pain , she was like this for like half an hour before my dad called me down to look at her. She was much colder than she should have been. The pain started in the stomach and went up to her upper chest. She had much trouble breathing. She couldn't move. We called 911 and a few minutes before they got here she started to get better, her breathing more controlled. By the time the ambulance got here she was able to get up. She went to the hospital and they had no clue what was wrong.

Hi.. Any chest pain in an some one above 40 years of age can be an angina unless proved other wise especially if your mom has risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.. I think, it would be useful if you think in these terms and start evaluation for these.. Discussion with a cardiologist would help your mom better in preventing severe complications, if not now, atleast in the future..

Hospital must excluded this pain to be cardiac origin. It it is not due to heart attach,then it could be due to acute gastritis/cholecystitis or costochondritis. Your mom will need USG abdomen,UGI endoscopy.If these r negative then just pain killers or costochondral steroid injections.
