Hello,
Thank you for your reply, Sorry for delay as i was offline just read your replies.
WIth your history you lie at low risk for heart disease and your symptoms are not typical for heart disease.
These seem more likely to be musculoskeletal pain.
As heart pain can present with different types of pain and even in young so we always need ECG and some basic test to rule out heart problem.
So you need ECG, try over counter medicine like tylenol and advil for pain, use dicloran gel over the pain area as this seems more likely to be musculoskeletal.
I hope this helps.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I am online for around 1 hour now.
Click ACCEPT if you have received your answer.

I just need answer for a simple question I do not have deep pockets of money to keep paying for answer . I guess I exhausted my funds limit so thanks for trying but my chest still hurts,I'm tired and you did not help. I have no more money for this issue
Cardiologist: Dr .Saeed ahmed, Doctor replied 5 years ago
Hello,
Thank you for your reply,
We do not deduct money unless customer pressed accept. So as per fact you have not been charged anything yet.
If there is some redness, swelling and pain then this can be skin or deep tissue infection and may need antibiotics. So in your case two main possible options infection or musculoskeletal pain.
On this forum our main aim is a satisfied customer. no need to press accept/or pay anything if you have not received your answer or satisfied.
If pain is severe go to emergency right away. If mild pain then try the medicine i told you, sometimes cold compresses also help such pain.
I hope this helps.
