Chest Pain Types, Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis
If you are experiencing chest pain, do not ignore
it. However, you should be aware that there are
several potential causes. 
The heart is frequently implicated in this
condition. It's also possible that chest pain is
caused by an issue with your oesophagus, muscles,
bones, or nerves. Some are, while others aren't.
Understanding what causes chest pain is essential.
As the name suggests, chest pain refers to
discomfort and soreness in the chest area.
Heart-related chest pain (sometimes known as
"cardiac chest pain") and non-heart-related chest
pain are the two main types of chest pain
(non-cardiac chest pain). Medical personnel
should be called if someone is experiencing chest
pain and does not know what the problem is.
What's causing the chest to ache so much?
Even while most people think of chest pain as an
indication of heart disease or heart attack, it
can also be caused by various factors. The
following conditions might cause chest pain
  • Problems with the heart and blood vessels, such
    as angina, aortic dissection, and aneurysms of
    the heart (a bulging section of your aorta).
  • GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), an ulcer,
    gallstones, spasms in your oesophagus,
    esophagitis, hiatal hernia, or gastritis are
    digestive issues.
  • Inflammation of the membrane around the lung or
    pleurisy or pleuritis (inflammation of the lining
    of the lung) are examples of pulmonary embolism
    (a blood clot in an artery inside the lung)
    (collapsed lung).

A sprained chest muscle or a shattered rib are
examples of musculoskeletal issues.
Involvement of or impact on several parts of the
chest by cancer.
Anxiety disorders, such as panic attacks
How are chest pain symptoms diagnosed and treated?
You should seek immediate medical attention if
you suspect a heart attack and especially if your
chest discomfort is new, unrelated to any other
symptoms, or persists for more than a few
moments. You will be asked a series of questions
by your doctor, and the answers you give will
help them determine the source of your chest pain.
Preliminary examinations
Chest pain can be caused by various things,
including heart abnormalities, which your doctor
can help diagnose or rule out with testing.
Included on this list may be
  • Recording your heart's electrical activity using
    an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG).
  • Enzyme levels can be measured by blood testing.
  • Heart, lung, and blood vessels are all examined
    in a chest X-ray.

  • Imaging your heart using sound waves, such as an
  • A heart or aorta MRI, which is used to detect
  • Measures of your heart function following
    physical efforts, such as stress tests
  • To detect blockages in specific arteries,
    angiography is performed

You may be prescribed medication or have
non-invasive procedures or surgery to alleviate
your chest pain. It's essential to figure out
what's causing your chest pain and its severity
before getting treatment.
Treatments for chest discomfort caused by
heart-related conditions include
  • Nitro-glycerine and other treatments open
    partially occluded arteries, anti-clotting
    medications, and blood thinners.
  • Surgical procedures to unblock clogged coronary
    arteries, such as cardiac catheterization, which
    may use balloons or stents.
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting or bypass surgery
    is a surgical procedure for repairing or
    replacing damaged arteries.

Other treatments for chest discomfort include
  • Your doctor will insert a chest tube or device to
    reinflate a collapsed lung.
  • Anti-reflux medications and other techniques to
    alleviate the symptoms of acid reflux and
  • Chest pain caused by panic attacks can be treated
    with anti-anxiety medication.
