Cardiologist, Interventional 's  Response
Get a Treadmill Test done, if that is negative, the pain is unlikely to be cardiac. Other causes of pain include musculoskeletal pain, costochondritis, pleural/pericardial pain, neuropathic pain, etc. A good clinical examination and focussed investigation will give you the diagnosis. Treatment directed at the cause of the pain will be curative. There is no point in just taking analgesics for temporary relief.

Hi,

If your recent ECG &2 D eco test are normal ,the chest pain you have must be due to some other cause than heart problem.
1) PLease get your TLC/DLC done .allergy with eosinophillia could be the cause.&it can be easily treated.
2) a cervical rib on left side may be cause,&this can be controlled with few life style changes,exercises,medicines
3)pain can be just be psycological due to tension
All you need is to belive the reports,&your doctor.Try to overcome -ve
thinking & replace it with a realistic understanding of the problem .Please try to know the causative factor,&get rid of it.
Thank you.

My dad went to the ER with intermittent chest pain like having contractions he said.. It eases and then more severe. His blood pressure stayed 240/140 at least all day even with medication (oral and IV) they have kept him overnight and have no abnormal tests other than a higher WBC. EKG and cardiac blood testing has all shown normal. They want to do a CT but have no idea what they are looking for just yet and planning on having a heart cath in the morning. He has had quadruple bypass about 5 years ago and has high BP and PVD and has taken medicine to lower his cholesterol which has been good for years now. Any suggestions on what could be going on or what to look for??

I have had chest pain in my lower left lung on and off for the past 6 months or so. Before this I had pneumonia which was misdiagnosed for 6 weeks and ended up on three courses of antibiotics. I was just wondering what the chest pain is. I have lost my faith in my doctors due to being misdiagnosed for so long and would just like a reasonable answer.

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?
