Today in the morning i worked out on my chest by doing Chest

Customer Question

Good morning
Today in the morning i worked out on my chest by doing
Chest press
Push ups
Chest fly
& when i took my car to my office i felt left chest pain for 10 min then it went .
I went to the hospital & they did for me EKG & it was normal then they told me that it maybe Musckeltal (from muscle strain) .
What i am asking is that he did it after the pain has gone So is it beneficial ?
For your info
I did since a year the following through a routine check up :
- EKG (Normal)
- Stress test (Negative & reached to 103% of my target)
- Echocardiogram ( Normal & the Dr told me that i have a strong heart muscle)
Then i did by mistake (They transferred me with other patient who is older than me 22 years) since 2 months a Duplex on Carotid also through the insurance & it was totally clear (Dr told me that it is an indication that my overall arteries are fine & clear)
N.B Pls note that i did a cardio workout 4 days a week & very taught cardio exercises like (Burpees - Jumping ropes - climbing stairs etc...)
Regards
Peter

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

At your age, with all the normal tests that you have had, it is VERY UNLIKELY to be heart disease.

I would not worry whatsoever.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Rate me when you are done asking.

My last follow up question is

Can PPI like Nexium cause this muscle pain ?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

In my 13 years of practice I have never seen a patient on nexium (which I used very frequently) and having muscle pain because of it.

Let me know if you have more questions.
