Chest Pain/Tightness

What is chest pain?

Chest pain or tightness is, as it sounds, a tight, heavy or stabbing pain across your chest area. It can be caused by stress, anxiety, indigestion, a persistent cough or chest infection, or even strenuous exercise. However, in some cases it will be a symptom of heart disease or a heart attack.

What treatments are there for chest pain?

If you are experiencing chest pains it is important to seek medical attention quickly. Understanding the underlying cause of chest pain is paramount in putting a treatment plan in place. During your consultation our cardiologist will carry out a range of tests or scans of the heart, which may include: an electrocardiogram (ECG), blood tests, an echo, and a CT scan.
