Can dehydration cause pain in the heart ?

Resolved Question:

Can dehydration cause pain in the heart ?
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Cardiology
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
Hello. I would like to help you find an answer.

Does it hurt all the time when you're dehydrated or with exertion?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
When dehydrated and sometimes if i go heavy on the caffenine.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
If you exert yourself does it hurt?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No never hurts when exerting myself. It has been months since it has done this last.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
Does it hurt to take a deep breath or press on the area where it hurts?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Taking a deep breath makes no difference; however, oddly enough, pressing the surface of the area seems to relieve the sensation. You know it is more like a pressure than a pain.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.

Okay. That is a key piece of info. I don't think this is cardiac, lung or GI.

 

This is likely muscular or cartilage.

 

I would try ibuprofen for the pressure and see.
