For roughly the past to weeks I have felt chest tightness

Customer Question

For roughly the past to weeks I have felt chest tightness certain times of the date. I went to see a cardiologist a few days ago and he said everything looked good but suggested it my be symptoms of heartburn. Another system I've been having is feeling resistance from my chest when I bend down and rise back up. I am a male by the way in case that has some significance.
JA: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?
Customer: Haven't dealt with the tightness or resistance before. I occasionally have shortness of breath. I am asthmatic but it doesn't bother me much any more.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have some food allergies as well as seasonal allergies to pollen and ragweed. There is no diabetes or heart disease that I'm aware of in my family. My father passed away when I was young due to sarcoidosis at age 36.

I took the EKG test and that came back fine. My blood pressure was a little high but the doctor said that can fluctuate. Doctor prescribed me Zantact 150 and told me to take it twice a day for five days and then get back to him next week.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
Tightness of chest, resistance can come from a few causes.
Angina or low blood supply to heart can cause it.
As you had EKG, examined by cardiologist, it is unlikely the cause.
Esophageal spasm, reflux can be associated.
It can come from asthma, anxiety or stress.
You can follow the advice of cardiologist.
Please avoid anxiety & stress if you have any.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
