Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!

I understand your concern and would explain that the fact that you have chest discomfort only in this area, does not mean that it is related to the heart.

It could be related to your stomach or local musculo-skeletal pain too.

Does it hurt when you put pressure on it? Does it hurt when you take a deep breath or move your body? This would indicate a possible musculo-skeletal pain.

Is the pain related to eating? This could be indicative of possible acid reflux.

Anyway, considering your recent performed cardiac tests, I would exclude any possible cardiac disorders.

So, try to relax and don't think about it! I would recommend taking ibuprofen coupled with an anti-acid, in order to help improve your situation.

Hope to have been helpful!

Let me know about everything!

Wishing all the best,

Hello it does hurt when I touch or press on it
It also hurts when I move or sit a certain way ans also when I eat also a little upset stomach with a bit of burning acid I would guess ans has no other symptoms so in ur opinio. As a cardiologist it is not cardiac so I require further testing

My opinion as follows:

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Thank you for the additional information!

Based on your description, I would exclude any possible cardiac issues. So there is no reason to perform any additional cardiac tests.

As the pain is related to body movements it is probably caused by costochondritis. Of course gastritis or acid reflux is exacerbating this situation too.

For this reason, I would recommend using regularly an antiacid or PPI ( omeprazole) and ibuprofen time after time for the pain.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Your symptoms are not related to the heart:

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

I don't think that these are signs of any cardiac disorders, especially when considering your recent cardiac tests.

In my opinion these episodes are just a sign of anxiety and nothing serious is going on.

So, just relax and try not to think about It!

Your symptoms are typical of musculo-skeletal pain.

I recommend taking ibuprofen and using local warm packs.

There is no need to perform any cardiac tests as your symptoms are less likely to be cardiac.

Try to relax and don't worry about it!
