A:   Thanks for consulting ATD. Chest pain due to ischemic heart disease is precipitated by exertion and relieved by rest. Pain usually localized at center of chest or left side of chest that may radiate to left upper limb, neck, back, shoulder and sometimes to abdomen. It may have associated symptoms like palpitations, breathlessness, dizziness, nausea, etc. If you have any correlation of your pain like this, get one ECG test that may provide some clues. Ischemic heart disease is uncommon at this age. However, if you have any risk factors for ischemic heart disease like smoking, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, hyperlipidemia,family history of heart disease, possibility of heart disease can not be ruled out. Consult cardiologist for further advice. Have a nice day.
