You need to be evaluated by your physician. Aspirin is in a group of drugs called salicylates. It works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain, fever, and inflammation. It is sometimes used to treat or prevent heart attacks, strokes, and angina. Your symptoms may be cardiac in nature and maybe that is why aspirin is temporarily relieving the pain.
