How do you know when a chest pain is something you should have

This answer was rated:

How do you know when a chest pain is something you should have checked out by a doctor. Sometimes I have a fast irregular heatbeat with chest pain in the the middle that can go all the way to the back. It does not happen all the times. I just do not want to bother my doctor if it is nothing important. I did go to a doctor and then did a pulse test and it was going form 116 down to 106 and back up.

Mysticdoc :

Irregular heart beats along with chest pain are not normal.

Mysticdoc :

This suggests the possibility of underlying heart disease --conduction system problem or ischemic heart disease.

Mysticdoc :

Further cardiac evaluation is required considering your age.

Mysticdoc :

EKG, Holter monitoring, Echocardiogram, stress test should be ordered.
