According to Dr Anil, Chest pain, burning or feeling pressure is considered to be the main symptom of heart disease, but these symptoms can also be caused by stomach problems such as gastric, muscle/arm pain, lung etc. Heart pain increases when walking or climbing and decreases after resting. Also, coughing, pressing on the painful area, shaking, breathing does not change the heart pain and it can be caused by reasons other than the heart diseases.

It is found that heart pain can sometimes also occur in the upper abdomen or in gastric area. If we feel the chest pain is accompanied by sweating, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations, it must be due to heart problem.
