Dear 50+ with chest pain,
To answer your question it is important to note that chest pain which is: pain, pressure, tightness burning or other discomforts, can be an indicator of a potential serious cardiac or cardiovascular disorder. There are many areas that pain may originate from, such as the skin, ribs, intercostal muscles, pleura, esophagus, heart, aorta, diaphragm or thoracic vertebrae. Therefore, it is important to have chest pain evaluated by a primary healthcare provider to determine the source of the chest pain.
