Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** am reading your question and will be back with you ASAP.
Have you had any testing for this symptom?
Angina is the pain caused when the heart muscle is deprived of normal blood flow. That can be from clogged arteries. It needs to be evaluated at an ER to see how serious it is.
The weight of your breast cannot cause this kind of pain or any woman with a 38DDD would have it most nights.
Chest pain can be from many other things from indigestion to a full blown heart attack. Symptoms in women aren't usually the same as in men (i.e. an elephant sitting on the chest).
You could check with a free clinic tomorrow. They will see people who don't have insurance, usually on a sliding scale fee basis. Here is a link to where you will find some free clinics.
There is no way to know without testing if it is heart related - or if it isn't. Certainly lying wrong can make any body part hurt. However, there's no way to know if that is what it is.
You're so very welcome. I hope you will have a healthy and happy 2017.
"..No offense to you..." Well, offense taken, multiple times.
Some options to consider for chest pain are:
These are just a few of the possible causes. I really don't see how knowing these could help give you peace of mind. The bot***** *****ne is that anyone with chest pain needs to be evaluated in person for an ecg and chest xray. You can obtain that help from any of the local free clinics in the link I sent you.
I'm sorry you misunderstood and thought that an MD would be responding ["...The implication on the site was that an MD would be responding..."] There is no such statement made. We even have a category where ONLY MDs and DOs can respond. You might have placed your question there. You also could have asked for an MD at the very beginning which would have saved my time as well as perhaps making you more comfortable. Although an MD would have told you exactly the same thing.
I will opt out since I don't want a negative rating after spending all this time helping you.
Welcome to JA, i see that you have requested an opinion from an MD. However i would tend to agree with the previous expert's opinion. The presence of left side chest pain and arm pain is highly suspicious of cardiac disease, any chest pain of this sort should be evaluated for heart disease until proven otherwise and a EKG is necessary to rule this out. Your age and the history of these episodes occurring in the past as well, all warrant an evaluation with an EKG, echocardiogram and if necessary, maybe even a stress test. Once the cardiac issue has been ruled out then we can consider muscular spasms, costochondritis and other issues which may cause this sort of pain.
I realize this may not be what you wanted to hear but it would be dishonest of me not to give you my honest opinion. Best of luck, I hope you have great 2017.
