There is help available for chest pain stress.

If you have chest pain, then it is advisable to get medical help as soon as possible; to get treatment and to get a diagnosis, your doctor can put your mind at rest and rule out serious medical conditions through accurate and simple testing.

One of the symptoms of a heart attack (Acute myocardial infarction, AMI) is chest pain, and because of this, members of the public believe they are having a heart attack when they get chest pain. Some people are at high risk of a heart attack, also remember that heart attacks can happen even if you are not at risk, and they can happen without warning. The cause of a heart attack is when the blood supply is interrupted to a part of the heart, causing heart cells to die.

It is worth remembering, however, that chest pain does not always indicate an acute myocardial infarction, it is possible that other health issues are responsible for the chest pain, these other type of heart related conditions may be:

Aortic Dissection: This can take place when the interior layer of the aorta’s wall splits open

Pericarditis :This is a puffy swelliing of the fine, sac-like membrane surrounding the heart

Coronary Spasm: This comes about when the artery wall muscles momentarily and temporarily constrict

Angina : When a section of your heart isn’t receiving enough blood, then you may experience chest pain.

Chest pain can also be caused by other illnesses that are not related to the heart:

GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)


Back pain radiating through to the chest

Gall bladder conditions

Hiatal hernia




Panic attacks
