Hello doctor,

I get heavy chest pains and sometimes it is unbearable. It goes up to my throat, upper jaw and sometimes to my back. Should I be worried?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Chest pain in your case can be due to either cardiac disease for which I may need more elaborated details from you or it could be due to gastritis.
  • Sometimes, pain from heart referred to left arm, jaw, throat and even some times to back which can be evaluated by, ECG, 2D echo cardiography, and treadmill test (TMT). These tests will tell us the condition of your heart.
  • For gastritis (must be ruled out by still more details from you), can be treated by a few medications and diet modifications. I want to know the following details.
  • Is this related to food intake? Does pain gets aggravated on jogging or walking uphill or by strain?
  • Do you have any preexisting other medical conditions? Are you addicted to alcohol or smoking, drugs, etc?
  • Do you have nausea or vomiting or bloated abdomen? Are there any sweating episodes at the time of pain?
  • Can you describe the kind of pain you are having?
