You should take proper check up like echocardiogram and ecg etc. You can consult me at Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment.

Hello doctor, I am a men. My age is 20 years. I have chest pain and left arm pain and back pain from yesterday night. I have done ecg, echocardiogram and stress test 6 months ago. All the results were normal then. There was no abnormality found in my echo, ett reports but in ecg report there was a t wave abnormality and doctor say that it was normal. So now I am confused if my pain is a heart pain or a gas problem? Help me. I am over weight. And also I want to know can the results of echocardiogram and stress test be changed within 6th month?

What are other symptoms that you r experiencing? By doing what like walking, exertion, eating or empty stomach- it increases or decreases in intensity. For how much time the pain remains? Is there stiffness also? How is your appetite? R you constipated? I need to know more to be able to make diagnosis most probably it’s gas. Lose weight it will help. Do this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, church, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain an active lifestyle. This is most important n non-negotiable part 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Curd is good for u. 11. Everyday preferably sleep on same time for more details you can consult me.

Dear Lybrate user Yes panic attack does not mean its a heart attack or something like this all tests come normal. There is nothing wrong with you organs specially heart. But there are some emotional issues psychological issues which are there and these are the reasons due to which you got panic attack. Consult a good psychotherapist and get yourself evaluated for the same. Good luck. Take care.

I haven’t been able to sleep good for two months. I went to the ER two months ago with chest pain shortness of breath and rapid heart rate. They did a EKG blood work MRI and echocardiogram. All test came back normal. It was a panic attack. I worry all the time that I’m two months something may change in my heart. When I’m trying to sleep I constantly think about my heart. I need reassurance that I’m ok. I want to put this behind me and move on with my life.

Improve your diet. More traditional health foods like nuts eggs butter. Less sugar jaggery and alcohol. Try to excel in your daily work. Get in touch with friends, family, wellwishers. Try to help those who are down and going through a bad patch. Avoid medical check ups and medicines.

It is really good that you have a clean medical record. If you are having panic attacks, you need to meet with a counselor immediately. On that person’s advice you may have to meet with a doctor and get on medication if so advised. Even so you must continue with the counseling to develop coping mechanisms to face the daily challenges of life. Because you are not handling fear well, you tend to overreact to normal fear with abnormal panic attacks. Then your panic reaction, which is fear based, irritates you easily and gets you angry. In other words the anger/irritation is an escalation over the fear. This is not advisable and it is happening because you are not dealing well with the panic. About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear and it will be the best solution to your problem. You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of panic reaction to disappear from your life for good.

Hi lybrate-user, please check for the symptoms first, such as sweating, giddiness, type of pain sharp, dull, throbbing, radiating and so on. So that we can identify either cardiac or gastric. Please try to contact a cardiologist physician in person. Or you may consult me privately. Thanks.

An echocardiogram (echo) uses ultrasound to create pictures of your heart's movement. A transesophageal echo (TEE) test is a type of echo that uses a long, thin, tube (endoscope) to guide the ultrasound transducer down the esophagus (“food pipe” that goes from the mouth to the stomach. The result is valid for ever.
