Symptoms: pain in back right side, on the height of heart

 

 

Doctor: Your mother has pain in chest with a previous history of angina and was treated for that. She again complaints of simila r pain. Chest pain could be due to heart, musculo skeletal i.e. chest wall, gastritis or due to neuralgia or rarely herpes zoster. From the history given, pain is not cardiac or musculo skeletal. Mostly it could be a neuralgic or neuropathic pain. Consult a general physician or neurologist for further evaluation of cause and get treated accordingly.
