Chest Pain Treatment in Dubai at CMC

Chest pain is a condition that is described as an intense or dull ache or a stabbing in the chest. Some individuals suffering from chest pain experience neck and jaw pain that begins in their jaw, travels to their back, or sometimes runs down one or both hands.

For anyone experiencing chest pain, it is highly recommended to get quick medical attention because it could be a sign of heart or lungs problems.

Symptoms of Chest Pains

Symptoms of chest pain might vary widely depending on the condition that is causing them. It may be difficult to pinpoint the cause without consulting a doctor, but the heart is typically unrelated to it.

It could be challenging to discern between heartache and other types of chest pain. More frequently, the following symptoms are linked to chest pain that is less likely to be caused by a heart condition:

  • A bitter taste or the impression that food is reverting to your mouth
  • When you adjust your body posture, soreness either becomes less or more severe
  • Some degree of stiffness when you press your chest
  • Countless episodes of continuous pain
  • Difficulty swallowing food or liquids

Even though heart disease is typically linked to chest discomfort, many people report having non-specific symptoms that are not always considered to be painful. The following symptoms frequently occur in conjunction with chest pains brought on by a cardiac arrest or another heart condition.

  • Rigidity or tightness in the chest
  • Terrible or scalding pain that radiates to your shoulders, back, neck, jaw, and either one or both hands
  • Persistent, activity-induced, recurrent, or fading and surfacing aches
  • Feeling dizzy or weak
  • Sweating
  • Nausea or feeling sick
  • Difficulty in breathing

Diagnosis of Chest Pain

When assessing chest pain, a doctor may recommend the following initial tests:

  •  An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) which monitors your heart’s electrical activity
  • Blood tests that assess the amounts of enzymes
  • A chest X-ray to examine your heart, lungs, and blood vessels
  • An MRI to evaluate heart or artery damage

Treatment of Chest Pain

After making a definitive diagnosis, the doctor may choose to treat your chest pain with a choice of medication, nonsurgical/conservative methods, surgeries, or a combination of the three. Your treatment will be determined by the extent and underlying causes of your chest pain.

The following are treatment options for heart-related causes of chest pain:

  • Oral treatment that can unblock partially clogged arteries
  • Heart arteriography, a procedure that involves opening narrowed arteries using balloons or stents
  • Surgical arterial repair sometimes referred to as bypass surgery

Other causes of chest pain may be treated with:

  • In order to relieve the pressure caused by a collapsed lung, your doctor may implant a chest tube or other similar device
  • Chest pain associated with panic attacks is treated with anti-anxiety medication
  • To relieve the symptoms of reflux and heartburn, antacids or other effective treatments are used
