Hi thanks for using HCM.

With history of chest pain and dizziness need to get complete physical examination and few test CBC, ECG, chest x-ray, ECHO cardiogram, thyroid profile.

Try to keep active. Regular exercise, yoga and pranayama and healthy diet helps you.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Nicotine from cigarettes can cause increased heart best and put pressure on the heart. Even passive smoking, that is, inhaling the smoke exhaled by others, exposes the body to nicotine and other harmful substances present in smoke. That is probably why you feel the same symptoms when others...

Hi,
This feeling is more or less psychological and will remain for few days.
Do not start chewing tobacco again.
Take some antacid or Omeprazole for few days.
Gradually every thing will be settled.
I advice to stop cigarette smoking as well.
Withdrawal effects will remain for few days.

For the last few months Ive been having symptoms of GERD , thats what my PCP is treating me for. I told him I have pain on the left side just above my clavicle in the hollow area. He felt to see if I have any swollen lymph nodes and says I dont. Now the pain has spread to my right side, and feels like it is in my collarbone towards my sternum and Im having bad pain in my chest just below collarbone on right side. At its peak I feel bubbling. Any idea what this could be? It is not relieved with any pain killers.

I am 48 year old woman who has been experiencing upper right abdominal pain (just below rib cage), constant belching , nauseu, extreme bloating , exhaustion. I have wake up in pain at night and use to experience what seemed like a panic attack with chest pains, so my GI put me on Librax and moved me from omeprazole to Aciphex . I have had an endoscopy (showed GERD) and thick stomach folds, colonoscopy-no issues, HIDA scan within normal range (don t know what my EF score is) and recently an Upper GI with small bowel and radiologist said it looked normal at a quick glance but had to put it together. My stomach is constantly distended that I can t shut may pants and with movement I sometimes experience pain. My GI said he will be at a loss if the GI comes back negative. Help!

I accidentally swallowed a quarter while playing a game of quarters last night which is a drinking game. I felt fine until I woke up today with chest pain . I went to the hospital and the doctor said the pain is probably just coming from the drinking and the quarter will pass naturally. I find it highly unlikely that the pain is not being cause by the quarter somehow. Is it possible that the quarter scratched the bottom of my esophagus some how and now excess stomach acid from drinking last night is giving me heart burn and that s what I m feeling? The pain was at about a 6 or 7 earlier and now has gone down to about a 2 or 3. It seems to be affected by different things I swallow as well. Milk and water seem to ease the pain. I tried eating a banana and that made the pain so bad I couldn t finish it. That s the only thing I ve eaten.

hello Dr. ive been having chest pains for about 9 months now, couple months ago i went to the doctor and we did an EKG, even a holter monitor because it felt like i had an irregular heartbeat, or it skipped a beat sometimes and id have to stop myself and get myself together for a moment. ekg, holter monitor results were all good, went to the lab, took blood, everything according to my doctor is normal( im Air Force so i go to the military doctor) i seen them in july, now im having chest pains again, i feel like my spleen is swollen even under my spleen where i think my liver is hurts occasionally. i have swollen lymph nodes wich has been going on for about 5 weeks, when i went to talk to the doctor about that they pretty much gave me prilosec for GERD, and im suppose to see if that helps. im 24 years old never had any other problems, no family history, and i am a male. ive also had a lumbar sprain 4 years ago and have had mid back problems as well. sometimes the chest pain is really dull, sometimes it feels like im getting pricked with a needle, on a scale of 1-10 id say the pain is normally about a 4. mostly on the left side, occasionally on the right also. ive been feeling really weak and tired lately through out the day. and im also deployed to a non disclosed location in southwest asia so medical care is not so great here. please help me out and give me any advice thank you so much. alden
