The heart is the organ responsible for getting blood throughout the body, the root of heart disease is when that blood flow is blocked.

Heart disease can also be cardiovascular disease, encompasses a range of conditions, including blood vessel diseases such as coronary artery disease, problems with heart rhythm (arrhythmias), congenital etc. Chest pain may have other symptoms associated with it.

What are the causes of Chest pain?

They can be categorised as follows:

Muscle or bone 

Muscle or bone can cause chest pain when one has:

  • Broken or bruised ribs.
  • When the pressure of the nerve is compressed due to fractures
  • Sore muscles from the exertion or chronic pain syndromes

Heart Problem 

Heart problem can cause chest pain through:

  • Pericarditis - This is a problem that occurs when the sac around the heart is inflamed.
  • Heart attack - This happens when there is a blockage of blood flow to the heart.
  • Cardiomyopathy - This is simply a disease of the heart muscle.
  • Myocarditis - This is an inflammation of the heart muscle.
  • Aortic dissection - This is a condition that involves a tear of the aorta, and the large vessel that comes off of the heart, it is a rare condition.
  • Angina - This is caused by the blockages in the blood vessels leading to your heart.

Lung Problem 

Lungs problems mentioned below can cause chest pain:

  • Pneumonia
  • Pulmonary embolus or blood clot
  • Pneumothorax
  • Viral bronchitis
  • Bronchospasm - This commonly occur in people who have asthma and other related disorders like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Gastrointestinal Problem 

Gastrointestinal problem can cause chest pain when one has:

  • Gallbladder or Pancreas inflammation 
  • Acid reflux, or heartburn
  • Gallstones
  • Disorders of the esophagus (swallowing problems)

Are there other causes of Chest pain?

Common underlying stressors include loss of a relative, school examinations, and breaking up with a girlfriend or boyfriend. Injury to the muscles and bones of the chest wall can cause so many issues to the chest. Panic attacks are also a cause of chest pain.

Some of these injuries can be a direct blow during a sporting event or a fall. Other less obvious causes may include heavy lifting of objects, frequent coughing, or even intense aerobic exercise that can all cause strain to the rib muscles.

Shingles may also develop pain along your back or chest before the shingles rash becomes apparent. 

What are other symptoms that may occur with chest pain?

  • Stress or Anxiety or feelings of panic
  • Pericarditis
  • Arterial Aneurysm
  • Injury
  • Precordial Catch Syndrome
  • Coronary Artery Abnormalities
  • Acid Reflux
  • Precordial Catch Syndrome
  • fever, aches, running nose, cough, chills, hyperventilating etc

Even though few people are willing to believe that stress can elicit such worrisome symptoms, stress-related chest pain is really no different than stress-related head ache. The pain is often dull or non-specific and worsens with anxiety and or stress.

Costochondritis occurs secondary to inflammation of the joint between the breastbone and ribs. It is particularly common in adolescent and pre-adolescent females, but can also occur to anyone at any age.

In the absence of other worrisome symptoms and signs, chest pain in patients with mitral valve prolapse tends to run an uncomplicated course.
