I went to the ER this Monday for chest pain. EKG, Cat Scan, and Echocardiagram showed heart was okay.


I was switched from 5mg of Bystolic to 2.5 mg of Novasrc on Tuesday because I was dizzy on Bystolic.


Chest pain seems to be getting worse my only symptom. Do you have any suggestions?


Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 years ago.



Chest pain is a known side effect of the Norvasc. Please see the side effect section of the resource;


Since cardiac causes are ruled out by your extensive work up; non cardiac causes of chest pain should be considered for your present symptom, apart from Norvasc side effect. Following should be the possibilities;

1) GERD would be prime consideration as it is one of the commonest cause for non cardiac chest pain.

2) Hiatus hernia

3) Esophagitis

4) Costochondritis; it is inflammation at the junctions of rib and cartilage or with the breast bone / sternum. Local analgesic ointment, or spray, chest brace and warm compresses with Ibuprofen is helpful. Another possibility is muscle sprain. Please read about the costochondritis;

5) Esophageal spasm

Please feel free for your follow up questions.
