You are having a transient insomnia it may be due to several causes 1. Stress 2. Depression 3. Change in sleeping environment 4. Drugs 5. Excessive heat or cold, noise 6. Jet lag, night shifts first we have to rule out any such cause, follow a healthy lifestyle with eating more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, go for regular exercise homoeopathic medicines are very safe and can be taken based on symptom totality for heart pain I advise you to visit cardiologist and get trop test, tmt, echo done to confirm diagnosis based on that homoeopathic treatment can be given.

Chest Pain - Reasons and Treatment

MBBS
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Chest Pain - Reasons and Treatment

If you thought that chest pain occurred only due to a heart-related issue like a heart attack, you are wrong. Chest pain is one of the most common reasons that people visit the emergency services and it can be caused due to problems with your heart, lungs and digestive system. 

Chest pain can be due to either of these two main reasons:

Heart- related Issues

1. Heart attacks called myocardial infarctions are very common reasons for chest pains. During a heart attack, the blood supply that serves the heart with oxygen is cut off due to plaque build-up in heart arteries causing the death of heart muscles. 

  • Other reasons for heart attacks are blood clots or torn blood vessels. 
  • Not all people having a heart attack have symptoms. Usually, people report symptoms like chest pain, upper body pain, nausea, sweating, fatigue, and trouble breathing.
  • A heart attack is a serious medical emergency for which immediate care is needed.

2. Angina pectoris is a type of chest pain that results from reduced blood flow to the heart. Low blood flow means your heart doesn’t get enough oxygen. The angina pain is often triggered by physical activity or emotional stress and feels like a vice squeezing your chest or a heavy weight on your chest. It can also spread from your chest to your neck, arms, and shoulders. Other symptoms are fatigue, dizziness and nausea and these normally last up to 15 minutes only.

3. Unstable angina which causes crushing chest pains suddenly and even when you are not doing anything strenuous is a medical emergency as it can lead to a heart attack. This usually shows that your heart, arteries are narrowing alarmingly.

4. Other heat-related reasons for chest pains are-

  • Mitral valve narrowing or stenosis
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Coronary Artery disease
  • Inflammation of heart muscles or pericardium and weakening of the heart muscles. 

All of these are emergencies and need immediate medical attention to prevent a fatality.

Not Heart- related:

1. Lung conditions like Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Pulmonary embolism

  • Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs caused by fungi, bacteria, or viruses. It causes inflammation in your lung’s air sacs and makes them full of pus which makes it difficult to breathe and causes chest pains, amongst other debilitating symptoms.
  • Bronchitis is an inflammation of your bronchial tubes. It can be chronic or acute and it can cause a cough with mucus and chest pains. 
  • Pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that occurs in the lungs. It can go on to damage parts of your lung due to limited blood flow. Apart from this, it can also decrease oxygen levels in the blood and affect other organs. 

It can be life-threatening due to permanent lung damage. The most common symptom of a pulmonary embolism is gradual or sudden shortness of breath

There is also- 

  • bluish skin tone 
  • anxiety
  • fainting
  • hest pain that extends into your arm, jaw, neck, and shoulder
  • lightheadedness

2. Rib cage inflammation or Costochondritis is also known as Tietze’s syndrome. It is an inflammation of the cartilage in the rib cage. Patients experience chest pain in the upper and middle rib area on either side of the body due to this. The pain can also radiate to the back or the abdomen, getting worse if you move, stretch, or breathe deeply.

3. Food pipe disease or Esophagitis is any inflammation or irritation of the oesophagus, a tube that sends food from your throat down to your stomach.

Common causes of food pipe disease are acid reflux or GERD and bacterial or viral infections. 

GERD- This condition occurs when the stomach contents and acids back up into the oesophagus. This causes chest pain that can mimic a heart disease. There may also be oesophagal spasms due to GERD. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Hi Lybrate user, as per the results of your lipid profile you can maintain it by eating healthy foods in your diet like- fruits, salads, pulses and legumes, oats, dalia, green leafy vegetables, eggs, chicken, fish etc. Avoid high salt in foods, fried, carbonated drinks, alcohol, smoking, junk foods. Also with this do some exercises like walk at least 20-30 mins will help maintain a healthy life. Good luck!

Hi st and t waves flattening is a very un specific change which indicates myo cardial ischemia at first you have to make it sure that the cause is cardiac a TREAD MILL TEST should be done along with echo to find out the intensity of problem inferior leads signify a problem in right side heart artery once confirmed if you havem mild coronary artery problem life style modification can be given a try but as I said depends on intensity of problem thanks.

Donot think in that way. Heart related problem arise after certain age. If you have any doubt please go for detailed check up like echo ecg and blood tests. If reports are normal then be fearless. But follow a diet that has less fat and junk food.

The QRS is said to be low voltage when: The amplitudes of all the QRS complexes in the limb leads are < 5 mm; or The amplitudes of all the QRS complexes in the precordial leads are < 10 mm Low voltage is produced by… The “damping” effect of increased layers of fluid, fat or air between the heart and the recording electrode. Loss of viable myocardium. Diffuse infiltration or myxoedematous involvement of the heart.
