Dear first asses are you feeling any breathing difficulty or sweating or nausea sensation. If yes you must see physician to rule out heart trouble. If its not you can have a muscle relaxant, most probably a muscular pain. Be well.

General Physician,
Hypertension during pregnancy should be an alert for women.

"Up until now it has been assumed that high blood pressure subsides after pregnancy, and there was no structured follow?up of the women who experienced it.

Hypertensive disorders are common in pregnancy, affecting 2% to 35% of all pregnancies, and ranking among the leading causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Preeclampsia or gestational hypertension associated with proteinuria is particularly linked with an increased risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes for both the mother and the fetus.

Cholesterol level are bit high in blood, but stress test found no angina no blockage was found in heart sonography and heart is perfectly ok. Nuthing found in chest x ray still having pain in chest wat could be the reason . Can anxiety causes chest pain ?

5 Common Vascular Disorders

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, Fellowship in Vascular Surgery, Ted Rogers Fellowship
Vascular Surgeon, Delhi
5 Common Vascular Disorders

Vascular disorders are disorders of the vessels in your body that carry either blood or waste products. The vascular system consists of the arteries (that carry blood away from the heart), veins (that carry blood to the heart) and lymph vessels (that carry waste products to be excreted from the body). The various diseases of the vascular or circulatory system are:

  1. Peripheral Artery Disease: Peripheral arteries carry blood to the various organs and tissues in the body. Accumulation of cholesterol and fat in the vessels narrow the pathway for the blood to flow. This can impair blood flow to the tissues in the body and cause complications. Various medications used to lower cholesterol and blood pressure can also be used for peripheral artery disease.
  2. Buerger's Disease: This disease causes obstructions in the veins and arteries in the legs. This can hamper blood supply in the toes and the feet. It causes pain and may require amputation in severe cases. Treatments for this disease include smoking cessation and medications to dilute blood vessels.
  3. Aneurysm: An aneurysm is swelling in the blood vessel walls; it usually occurs in the aorta. The artery walls become fragile and are placed under a lot of stress; this may lead to a sudden rupture of the aortic vessels. This disorder is usually treated by surgical procedures.
  4. Peripheral Venous Disease: Peripheral venous disease is characterized by damage to the valves that allows blood to flow in a single direction. Damaged valves can cause blood to flow backwards and therefore, accumulate. Treatments for this disorder are incorporating certain lifestyle habits such as quitting smoking and alcohol.
  5. Blood clots in the veins: Blood clots may occur in the veins present inside the muscles of the thighs and lower legs which lead to deep vein thrombosis. You may be prescribed anti-coagulants, also known as blood thinners, to treat this disorder.

Causes
People with diseases such diabetes, high blood pressure, or kidney failure can be more likely to have vessel problems. Working with vibrating tools, being in cold temperatures, and smoking can worsen vascular problems. Causes of vascular disorders usually fit into one of 5 groups:

  1. Traumatic, which occur after injury
  2. Compressive, which occur when the pipes flatten
  3. Occlusive, which occur when pipes are blocked
  4. Tumors (growths) or malformations (deformed, tangled pipes), which may or may not be present at birth
  5. Vessel spasms, which occur when abnormal control of vessels causes them to narrow

Symptoms
Symptoms of vascular disorders can include:

  1. Pain
  2. Abnormal color changes in the fingertips
  3. Ulcers or wounds that do not heal
  4. Hand problems when in cold temperatures or locations
  5. Numbness or tingling of the fingertips
  6. Swelling
  7. Cool or cold fingers and/or hands 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Pin in chest at a age of 21 is highly unlikely to be of cardiac in origin. Most likely the cause of your chest pain is either muscular or acid peptic disorder or gastritis.

Hi, I am 35 years, 65 Kg, height 5’6”, male from India. I am having sharp pain in chest slightly leftwards for last 10 years. Sometimes this pain is also felt simultaneously in left shoulder or left arm or left head. Duration of this pain is 1- 5 seconds, mostly while resting but its frequency and intensity is not certain. Sometimes it occurs while warming up or cooling down. Also noticed, that it is related to cold weather. Sometimes left part of head is numb and has pulsating pain. I do exercise, vegetarian except eggs, almost no dairy product, and no processed food. No tea coffee, no alcohol. Been smoker till 2008, quit. Had stomach acidity issue till 2012 but no more at all. There is no problem at all exercising in fact I feel great and energized doing it. None of my maternal or paternal relative have BP or cardiac issue except my younger brother who underwent dental’s procedure due to Aortic Dissection in march 2013, but he have a genetic condition called Marfan’s Syndrome, no other family member have this. I always thought it is muscular or gastro related, so it never bothered me until November 2015. Last November on two successive nights I woke up feeling my chest pounding hard. Checked my BP and Heart rate everything normal on both occasions, but was not able to sleep well those nights every time fall asleep it woke me up I can feel my heartbeat and whole body is shaking in rhythm with it but my heart rate was absolutely normal. On third day all this panicked me I checked my BP it was raised so went to physician, BP 150/90 he told me its anxiety or due to some food, gave medicines for BP, anxiety and antacids. It helped me sleep, symptoms are as it is but milder now. Next day went to see cardiologist, I was too worried, he checked my BP 170/100, and did ECG, Tropnin T and ECHO all normal. Gave medicines for BP, anxiety and five days later did TMT, also normal. My BP came normal next day of visiting cardiologist and never rose again. I also assumed it to be anxiety and stopped all medications, in 30-40 days everything was normal except that sharp occasional pinching which I was having for years but now more frequent. Summers of 2016 was ok not much issue. In july 2016 suddenly foul smell (like from dead bodies) started coming from my lower centre chest. This smell is totally different from my body odor and it continued after that till date. This November I felt some itching in centre chest on at least five different occasions while doing sudden exertion from rest like climbing a floor or getting up from chair or bed and rushing to open door. On night of 28-nov-2016, I felt sudden tightening in my left upper chest for 1 or 2 seconds, during sexual exertion, it felt like something had grabbed it tried to find the muscular nature by examining different chest and shoulder muscles but didn’t find anything wrong. Checked BP it was normal. On 1-dec consulted cardiologist, was nervous, BP 170/90, I denied testing this time but he said in the wake of new event we have to do all tests again. LIPID, HBAC, ECG, ECHO, Tropnin T, Na & K, TMT all normal. But this time ECG machine interpretation was “acute MI (inferior)” and Tropnin T level was 13.65 against normal value of 14. Does this is anything to worry about? What is that bad smell? As symptoms are intensifying year after year, what may be the cause? What further investigation can be recommended, if any? Cold weather increases it, why? Why pinching and heaviness is felt on left chest mostly while resting?

It is serious, if the ECG and Trop I value that you have mentioned is what it is. It means you have probably had a heart attack. Please take it seriously and go and consult a cardiologist for an angiography without any delay.
