cardiologist-icon
I'm 22 years old and I have chest pain.
I have been having chest pain for a while now, mostly on the left side (by the heart) but sometimes on the right side as well. I also noticed random pain in several parts of my body including left arm & a bit in the left shoulder. I have been at the Doctor and she checked my heart, she said my heart is completely fine and that it might be Acid Reflux. I'm still worried since it's still happening and I read that if the pain is in your left arm/shoulder too it's signs of a heart attack.

Having a pain, heaviness or discomfort in & around your chest can be scary. It does not always mean that you are having a heart attack. There can be many other causes, including Other heart problems, such as angina Panic attacks Digestive problems, such as heartburn or esophagus disorders Sore muscles Lung diseases, such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or pulmonary embolism Costochondritis - an inflammation of joints in your chest Some of these problems can be serious. Get immediate medical care if you have chest pain that does not go away, crushing pain or pressure in the chest, or chest pain along with nausea, sweating, dizziness or shortness of breath. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain. To rule out cardiac issues. Get a ECG and 2D echocardiography done. If they are normal then get a TMT / stress echo done.. If they are also normal then you have nothing to worry from heart side Meanwhile take Tab. Flexon Mr twice a day for 5 days Cap. Pantocid DSR 40 mg before meals twice a day for 5 Get back to me with the reports for a detailed consultation.   Watch these simple explanatory videos for underlying the problem.
