Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This type of pain can be due to the inflammation of the bone or the cartilage attached to it commonly.

Pinched nerve at the spine also can cause pain.

Another possibility can be due to the underlying heart problem.

Myocardial infarction can cause such symptoms.

Hence, a clinical evaluation is needed since I am unable to examine you online.

Anti inflammatories like Naproxen may be tried meanwhile.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
