Hello, I understand the situation of your mother.It would be great if you would have mentioned your mother's age and if there any health condition already present or any family history of some serious illness?Is she hypertensive?Is she on any medications? Any other symptoms apart from this?Any serious anxiety problem during the whole thing?Although you have not mentioned her age, considering your mother in her 4-5th decade of life, I will suggest you few things.
First of all, if the pain is for the first time or even had such complaint previously then also it's better to get an EKG done when she is having the pain.Any kind of chest pain is not supposed to be ignored, seeing a doctor in person is always the best option in this case.There are many reasons for chest pain, but mostly these are related to heart conditions in this age of patients.It can be just a muscle spasm or because of acidity also there is burning pain sometimes.But to rule out the actual cause after physical examination along with few blood tests to just be sure of checking the possibility of any heart condition.
I would suggest you fix an appointment with a doctor as early as possible and get your mother examined by him or her.If the pain is increasing continuously for a long time go to ER, It's, for now, that's the best thing you should It's always the best option for such complaints.After that finding out the exact cause you can do things as per your doctor's advice.Stay alerted and healthy.Always pay attention to such health condition.Hope this helps.If you have any queries, feel free to contact anytime.
