Having any kind of chest pain is a worrying
experience. Your chest is the housing for some of
your most vital organs, so the general advice
when having chest pains is to contact your
nearest AE, which in itself is a stressful thing
to go through. Here, at Venturi Cardiology, we
believe that peace of mind goes a long way
towards both mental health and physical health.
Being calm and in control during situations of
stress helps to keep your blood

  • pressure stable and your thinking clear.
    Our heart health blogs are designed to educate
    and reassure about all things related to
    cardiovascular problems.
  • There are many potential causes of chest pain
  • Heartburn or indigestion  If it starts after
    eating and you bring up acidic fluids or food,
    this could be indigestion. The best thing to do
    is to take an antacid, popular brands being
    Rennie and Gaviscon, which should help almost
    immediately. 
  • Anxiety or panic attack  This causes sweating,
    dizziness, an elevated heart rate, and chest
    pains. Something helpful to try here is deep
    breathing and taking yourself off to a quiet
    space to calm down if you can.

  • Chest infection or pneumonia  If you cough up
    yellow and green mucus and have a high
    temperature and pains, it is likely a chest
    infection or pneumonia. The best thing here is to
    rest, drink plenty of fluids and seek medical
    advice for a potential antibiotic prescription to
    fight the infection. 
  • Shingles  Shingles cause a tingling on the skin,
    chest pains and a rash that blisters after a few
    days. You can take pain relief for shingles, keep
    your rash clean, and use a cold compress to
    manage swelling and itching. 
  • Pericarditis  This condition causes a sudden
    sharp pain in your chest which worsens when you
    breathe or lie down. If this is the case, contact
    your GP immediately or book in with a private
    cardiology clinic, like here at Venturi
    Cardiology, as this can be a symptom of an
    underlying heart condition. We will be happy to
    check you over and advise on the next steps.

  • Angina or heart attack  this is the cause that
    is most commonly feared when chest pains occur.
    However, if you recognise the signs, a timely
    diagnosis could make all the difference. A range
    of cardiology tests will provide you with a
    comprehensive report concerning your heart
    health.
  • If you begin to experience chest pains, please
    seek medical advice for further guidance. If you
    would like to know more about your heart health,
    and would like a timely and thorough examination
    to allay any fears you any have, book a
    consultation with us today.
