Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Last night, I had severe chest pains that came and went every few seconds to every few minutes. After a while, they stopped, and I have not had any pain since. Do you think it is something to be concerned about? Please help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq, and thank you for choosing us as your provider for health care.

I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.

It is possible that the chest pain you experienced could be due to something less serious, such as muscle strain, acid reflux, or anxiety. However, it is still important to rule out any serious underlying conditions, especially if the pain was severe. If you have not already, I recommend making an appointment with your primary care physician or a cardiologist to discuss your symptoms and undergo any necessary tests to determine the cause of the chest pain. They can provide you with a more accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan based on your individual circumstances. Again, I strongly recommend seeking medical attention as soon as possible, as chest pain can be a sign of a serious medical condition, and it is always better to choose the side of caution.

Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further.

Thank you.
