Chest pain is one of the most common reasons people see a cardiologist. There are a variety of causes of chest pain, and of course, some can be life-threatening.
Most people immediately associate chest pain with a heart attack. And chest pain is not something you want to ignore. But chest pain has many possible causes
The job of any doctor is to determine if the chest pain or pressure is cardiac or not. If it is not cardiovascular, usually the symptoms are not signs of immediate danger. There is safety in time as well. Symptoms that have been present for months are much less likely life-threatening than if they started two days ago.
Heart related symptoms are typically as follows: Pressure in the center of the chest; nauseous and sweaty; worse with activity; shortness of breath.
That being said, cardiovascular symptoms may not fit the textbook definition. Your doctor will help decide. When in doubt, get it checked out.
A variety of conditions can cause chest pain. They include:
Pharmaceuticals often carry side effects of muscle pain or increase your risk of reflux/heartburn. Statin drugs are notorious for causing muscle aches and pains. Discuss this with your holistic doctor.
Your average MD can only recommend pain relievers such as ibuprofen or narcotics for pain. That is not a solution. That is a cover-up. A glass of whisky would serve the same function.
Go see your chiropractor. Chiropractic care really shines for digestive issues and, of course, musculoskeletal complaints.
Nutritional supplements can be very helpful for chest pain issues. In addition to our Foundation 5, some of our favorite supplements include:
