I am 35 years old and have done TMT, chest xray, cardiogram test before 6 month and lipid profile is done before 10 days. all are normal. My BP was 120/80 before 10 days. however I have anxity of heart issue. Tonight I went for a walk after 2 hours of dinner and I had a fast walk. I feel pain in left side (near junction of hand and body). I had continued to walk. I pressed the muscles and Pain was not there.......

SO, what could be the cause. Is due to gas or acidity or heart issue.l

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your health concern.

I am assuming all the diagnostic testing was done before you had this incident of left sided chest pain.

Did the pain persist after you stopped walking? Was the pain actually in your chest? Did you experience any shortness of breath? Or was the pain in your left arm, since you say junction of hand and body?

Have you had any issues with gas, bloating or acid reflux?

I can only suggest you speak with your primary care physician, who knows you, your medical history and do a physical exam. Please keep us updated.
