Constant stomach/chest pains

An_201573 posted:
I have been having pains in the stomach/chest for a while now. Its more of a burning, gurgally, and sharp pains, than nausea and upset. Usually I will take a antiacid or a gasx and it will calm the pain for a little while. There seems to be no pattern of when it happens, but has been happening more and more. Does this sound like something I should be concerned with or just more on the lines of heartburn?

Hi Anon_154491,

I'm sorry but it's not possible for anyone to be diagnosed over the internet. Please do see a doctor for help. You may want to use the Symptom Checker tool to find WebMD articles to help you. Check out the Digestive Disorders Health Center for more helpful articles.

Anon,
Anytime you take a First Aid class the first thing they will teach you is that you never screw around with chest pains. Always take chest pains as if it is heart related until you find out differently. I would rather feel silly and be told it is not heart related than to be in serious trouble with it being a heart problem. Please do no take this lightly. Get to your physician as soon as you can. Pain is an indication that there is a problem! Small problems stay small when they are taken care of in a timely manner. Please get help.
Take good care,
Love Goes There, Mag's Jeaneau

I agree. You should be evaluated by a doctor asap just to rule out other serious conditions. Chest pain can also be caused stress and acid reflux.
