Can it be a hart condition?
I went to my local doctor because of a severe pain in my chest
I am a smoker by the X-Rays showed that my lungs are clear,
I went to a cardiologist about 2 years ago and no problem there, but it's for a few weeks now that I get this pain in my
left side of my chest and at the left side of my back. I am under real emotional preasure from about December.
Could this just be tension, I am a 33 year old woman

Thanks!

Lila, I wrote something a while ago on the “other than heart” causes of chest pain and if you mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll send you a copy. Read it and let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
