So recently there have been a lot of cases in my practice where the patient has presented with chest pain, of course the right thing to do is visit a doctor for any pain in your chest. But just to narrow it down for those wondering.
When you feel cardiac related pain, you will feel a deep pressure in your chest, a squeezing sensation if you like, the pain feels "crushing" this is usually the onset of a heart attack and medical attention is required as soon as possible. If you have irregular unexplained chest pain and you are generally healthy but they feel as described above, you may have a heart condition. If the pain feels like a tearing, sharp, stabbing, or more like an ache then the cause is more likely muscular or gastric. Of course as mentioned if you have any kind of pain near where your heart is, see a doctor and get a diagnosis. Doctors would rather you see them instead of googling your symptoms, in some cases time is in short supply.
Muscular pain in some cases can last years, but usually presents after demanding activity, for example you have just started going to the gym or after a long time have started having intercourse again. Both can be incredibly demanding on muscles that have been left to normal daily activities for the past several months/years. This can include tightness is your chest, aches and pains in arms, neck, chest etc.
I hope this helped anyone experiencing sudden chest pain.
Remember to always see a doctor regardless of what type of chest pain you or Google thinks it is.
