Hello doctor,

I am a 17-year-old, and I have had chest pain daily for the past four months. The pain occurs on both sides of the chest but mainly on the left side. I also feel some kind of pain in both of my hands, like in my arms and fingers, but not in the neck. Along with that, I was also suffering from stomach aches. I went to the doctor and told him my symptoms. The doctor said I had constipation and advised me to take some medicines. And when I asked about the chest pain, he said it was normal due to gas. I returned home and started taking medications. I felt relief from the stomach pain, but my chest pain was still unaffected. I went to the doctor again, and he said that its due to gas and gave me some medicines. But still, I got no relief. So I visited the doctor again. This time he advised me to have a chest X-ray. The X-ray report concluded that bilateral lung fields show prominent broncho vascular markings.

After knowing that, I got scared. I did some research on the internet, and in some articles, it is written that it could be related to heart problems. I want to know whether it is related to the heart or not. It is written clearly in the report that the heart is normal in size and contour. But still, it does not ensures that I have no heart disease. Please give your kind advice. I want to be clear about whether it is a heart-related problem. Also, it is treatable or not, and if it is treatable, what is the treatment procedure? Please help me with this.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

The X-ray report would not explain chest pain. You should get an ECG (electrocardiogram) done to rule out cardiac problems. Chest pain can occur due to anxiety, acid reflux, musculoskeletal pain, and lung disease. You do not need to worry about your X-ray because it is a nonspecific finding and is not responsible for your chest pain. I hope this helps.

Thank you.
