Chest discomfort

Questions and answers on "Chest discomfort"

For the past hour I ve been slightly short of breath and had some chest discomfort. I do however suffer from both sleep apnea and acid reflux and this chest discomfort happened right after I woke up. I am 23 I weigh 280lbs and smoke a pack every other day but I am trying to quit. I am also having a sour stomach and achy muscles. Could it be symptoms of a heart attack or is it just a panic attack? How often do ppl my age have heart problems? No no arm pain. I m not in any pain. I could easily just drive to the hospital. The discomfort is gone. I think its just a panic attack. I have had them before. This is the first time without knowing why. The last 2 times had to do with stress. Dude I m trying to quit smoking and I m still losing weight. I used to weigh 330lbs.

Dear brogo,
Your symptoms suggest that you had an episode of heart burn along with mild heat stroke.. The good thing is that they are both temporary conditions with no long term effects.. Lesson for you is that when you plan episodes of long duration in the sun you should be well hydrated and...

Hello, I m an active 31 year old male. I am a smoker. Less then a pack a day. Over the last year I have been working out and eating healthy. I run at least 2 miles almost everyday and lift weights. I have lost around 30 pounds and am now 6 and 186 lbs. The last month I have been having discomfort in my chest . I can feel my heartbeat even when resting. For awhile I was having issues with air hunger . Not short of breath but feeling like I wanted more and yawned a lot to get it. I think my issues started initially with anxiety . I was having a really stressfull week that started my issues. The discomfort I feel now is the whole feeling my heartbeat, light dull pain once in a great while and the air hunger (which has kind of subsided). Also as a side note I am in the army and currently deployed. Any advice you can give would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

doctor1 MD

Anxiety is common with a stressful life and hence commonly causes aerophagia i.e. increased air hunger. Because of that a lot of times you will feel lethargic and yawning. Also if you drink a lot of tea or alcohol then cut down on it.
Its nothing very serious but its a common thing seen in army...

Hi, I am 44years old. Seven years ago I suffered an acute myocardial infarction . There was 15% damage to my heart muscle and I have a stent put in. I am currently experiencing discomfort (like someone pressing on mu chest with their hand .) My mother passed away to heart disease at 46years of age. Her brothers passed away in their 50 s. What kind of life expectancy should I expect. Please be honest.

doctor1 MD

Dear Sir/ Madam
There is no method by which we can estimate or prognostic about an individual patient. If you have discomfort you must see your cardiologist and seek a guideline based treatment. Try not to think much on issue and remain stress free. Best things for patients of heart attack are is...

doctor1 MD

Hi
in background of hypertension , abnormal lipid level and equivocal TMT definately required further test ,
CT coronary angio has high negative predictive value means if CT Coronary angio shows no blockage means no need to do further test but if it shows blockage then you need to go cath angio...

hello madam,

I have a knott in the Y of my rib cage, just below rib cage! It gives me discomfort when pressing on it or bending over. I am having indigestion everyday and it seems to be worse at night when laying down. When I say indigestion, I mean to a point that I think I may be having a heart attack!!! I get up and walk around trying to burp hopeing it will relieve the pain!!! Do you have any ideas of what this might be and what can I do to help resolve this? Thanks!!!

Hi, I am 19 weeks pregnant and I am having a feeling of trapped air bubbles in my chest. I have a gluten intolerance and I often experience indigestion/ heartburn and I have experienced a lot of acid reflux in the past mostly before I started my gluten free diet. Some times I feel as though a piece of food gets trapped and I need to quickly grab water to help wash it down. I figured that the indigestion and feeling of wanting to burp was normal during pregnancy but it feels worse right now, like I m going to vomit and it s causing my mouth to produce more saliva right now. Is this just normal indigestion?

doctor1 MD

I have a bit of a problem: when I burp my heart rate goes up and it's not just one burp then it's over its about five with-in a span of 30 minutes then it stops and then everything is back to normal
