 What's more important? your heart or your brain?

I'm a 37 year old experiencing chest pains - a tightening in the middle of chest with intermittant sharp pains
I was admitted to the hospital and had every test imaginable - even ruled out GERD,costochondritis and pericarditis. Sometimes the pain is sharp behind my breastbone. 5 weeks on two different nsaids made no difference. Beta Blockers made no difference. I do have mild mitral valve prolapse. It's been almost two months of pain. Any ideas?


It sounds like reflux if it is absolutely not your heart. It also could be pleuracy (A drying out of the pleural lining of your lungs) which is usually caused by smoking.


You need to take a brisk 20 minute walk EVERY day for the rest of your life, and you will find that your life is entirely changed.

If you can't walk 20 minutes, walk three today, four tomorrow, five the next day... and work up to 20 minutes.

IT WILL make your chest pains go away, and your entire life will change.

Whole lot cheaper than all that worthless medication.

So, it's either anxiety, or, if you happen to have a 3" metal pole lodged in your chest, that would do it too.

Are you taking any medications? Do the symptoms go away when you stop taking them? I had to stop taking a popular allergy medication, because I would wake up in the middle of the night with chest pains. It took a long time before I associated the two. I discussed the problem with my doc and am now taking another allergy medication with no problem.

hey get some other advice or help, i was sent home from the hospital and told i was fine. i insisted on seeing a cardiologist and 1 week later I had quad- bypass. so sometimes you have to demand another Dr or test to be taken thank GOD i DID

Tina mentioned a popped rib head, and since I had one popped back in by an orthopedic doctor I can vouch for the fact that they hurt like heck.

I am also on heart medication, and when this rib issue acts up it is scary because I'm never sure what it is.

One thing I can tell you (as told by a cardiologist) is that heart issues are usually not sharp momentary stabbing as you've described, but more of a constant intense pain.

Regardless, you can never be too sure or too safe, so you might want to think about seeing a cardiologist...good luck.

Its just a guess, but I'd say you should put the fork down.

Back injury, compressed vertebra, rapid weight loss resulting in reforming/sizing your skeletal structure.

Think you may have reflux? Have the Dr. tried putting you on reflux meds just to see if it could ease your pain..Once I had this condtion I think it was called purlsee ( can't spell right) anyway it has something to do with the chest and lungs it could cause the same pain your having...hope this could be some help.

Considering that everything else, like heart, is ruled out, could it be spasms.
A good chiropractor could help a lot

you must be a smoker. when you'll get an angina you will feel like a doll pain like head AK left arm or other place. But you will not be asking Answer. Go see Doctor if in dought..

Could be panic attacks. When I was having panic attacks a lot I often had very uncomfortable chest pains like you're describing. During the actual attacks I felt like I was in the middle of a heart attack - very scary.

I'm not a doctor, though, so this is in no way an educated answer - it's just an educated guess.

Perhaps something with your lungs?

Maybe pleurisy or anxiety.... if you are having chest pain, this is NOT the place to get diagnosed. Go to a specialist.

Pain from GI tract, reflux esophagitis, spasms of esophagus. I have experienced this type of pain on occasion for many years. It occurs mainly under stress.

maybe i don't know all your history but could you be overweight, sometimes that puts pressue on the heart and tends to give you sharp pains. and havintg panic attacks definitely will let you think your haveing a heart attack.

Sir Real
I don't know what tests have been run. But consider spinal disease that could be pinching a nerve in your upper back. Certain respiratory diseases can cause chest pain. Lung cancer (not trying to scare you). If you got a rash with the chest pain, could be shingles. Chest wall pain from over exercise. Even a broken rib. I don't know if you've been worked up for any of these, but I hope this helps.

I get the same feeling sometimes when I breathe. It hurts. The best thing to do, is just continue to go to your regular doctor and have him run any and every tests possible on you to ease your nerves. If you still feel uncomfortable, ask him to refer you to a cardiologists.
