No nausea or heart burn no alcohol or smoke medication lexapro and synthroid
Chest pain comes and goes since 1:30am now 3
Everyday stress and anxiety

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, I would advise seeing a doctor in an emergency room now as such chest pain can be associated with Ischemic heart disease.

EKG, Chest X-ray must be performed ASAP.

Don't wait and visit the emergency room.

It can be life-threatening.

Another possible differential diagnosis may include Gastroesophageal acid reflux, Panic attack, Costochondritis.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
