7 REASONS YOU WHY MAY FEEL CHEST PAIN DURING
EXERCISE
2
INTRODUCTION
  • Chest pain has become a common medical condition
    and the second highest cause of Emergency room.
    Chest pain serves as the initial symptom of
    several diseases.
  • The heart specialists in Bangalore have
    researched the possible reasons for chest pain
    during exercise as follows

3
  • Muscle Strain or Injured rib
  • During exercise, one flexes his muscles and in
    case of strain in muscles, one may observe
    inflammation of muscles. The strain around the
    tendons of the rib results in chest pain during
    exercise. In case of any injury near the rib such
    as breaks, fracture or bruise may result in chest
    pain. 
  • Peptic Ulcer
  • Peptic ulcers (ulcers on the lining of the
    stomach) may result in recurring discomfort and
    pain around the chest. The instant remedy to it
    is gulping an antacid that is available in the
    nearby pharmacy.

  • Problem in heart
  • When it comes to chest pain, the first thing
    every common people relates to is a heart
    problem. Heart attack, medically termed as
    myocardial infarction is the most common reason
    for chest pain. The medical condition where the
    coronary artery is blocked and the heart loses
    oxygen is referred to as a heart attack. 
  • Another reason for chest pain is Angina Pectoris
    which occurs due to a lack of blood supply in the
    heart region. The chest pain due to Angina may
    often be mistaken as a heart attack. Hypertrophic
    Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is common disease-inducing
    chest pain. In this disease, the cells of the
    heart enlarge thickening the walls of the
    ventricles of the heart.
  • There are several heart hospitals in Bangalore
    that take care of all the heart-related diseases
    and provide emergency services in case of extreme
    chest pain.

5
  • Problems in the Lungs
  • Asthma is the most common medical condition these
    days. In the case of asthma, chest pain occurs as
    the pathways of air into the lungs are affected
    in this medical condition. Exercise triggers the
    inflamed airways into the lungs, making it
    difficult for the person to breathe and induce
    intolerable chest pain.
  • Chest pain may occur due to lung infection (such
    as Pneumonia), Pleurisy (inflammation of the
    covering of the lungs) or collapsed lungs.
  • Problem in Esophagus
  • One may experience chest pain due to oesophagal
    spasms/ contraction, hypersensitivity of the food
    pipe or rupture of oesophagus/food pipe.
  • These are the possible reasons related to the
    oesophagus that can lead to chest pain.

6
  • Hiatal Hernia 
  • Hiatal Hernia is the medical condition where the
    top of the stomach pushes itself up into the
    chest. This is a common state that induces Chest
    pain as well as heartburn and symptoms of
    GERD(Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). 
  • Panic Attack 
  • While the above problems focus only on physical
    problems, we should also consider the role of
    mental health in case of chest pain. Some people
    experience chest pain when they are in a state of
    panic under certain circumstances. Anxiety attack
    or trauma due to emotional reasons may lead to
    chest pain. 

7
Chest pain may occur due to minor reasons like
inflammation or rib injury as well as serious
conditions like heart attack,hiatal hernia which
requires serious medical attention. As the
muscles are stressed during exercise, there is a
greater chance of chest pain. One may follow some
precautions to prevent chest pain during
exercises such as eating a balanced diet,
exercising regularly, avoiding tobacco and
alcohol, taking proper medication for high blood
pressure and asthma.
