When I smoke my chest hurts.

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 still smoke sometimes there are times when my chest will feel ok but there are times when it will feel heavy. I also have these feeling at times at night after I eat wherein my middle chest would feel heavy and will have palpitaions and shortness of breath . Im not sure whats on happening to me. I dont know what to do anymore? please help

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
You are suffering from Anxiety and may be high blood pressure. Get your Blood Pressure tested regularly and start to control your anger. You can try doing Yoga and Meditation every morning and have adequate rest. Sleep for a minimum of 8 hours daily and exercise regularly. If you are overweight reduce your weight, avoid eating junk foods and coffee. Coffee is a stimulant. Take your medications regularly and go for regular follow up. Take Care.

Hi Greetings from health care magic
your report is saying slight left atrial hypertrophy and addition to that you are chronic smoker. you are working in a call center where you are passing lots of mental stress. no physical activities. Diet must be irregular. so all these things will lead to rise your blood pressure and that may create many more physical complication in future . So with all your treatment you have to improve your life style.
2) daily yoga and pranayam any time. Dont say No time.. you have to find out minimum 10 minutes for your own health
3) morning walk daily for 30 minutes
4) avoid coffee, tea as much as possible
5) avoid taking all junk food and fast food..' instead of taking coca with finger chips it will be more beneficial to take one apple or two banana- saying just for example'
6) take sufficient water during your working hour.
7) every 1 hour interval just move from yourt chair for 5 minutes
8) always'take it easy' mood.
9) slep at night by 10 .. during home make your self relax..
10) try to work maximum 7 hours.
Thank you
