Left chest pain is a sign of what disease?
I have a history of high cholesterol. I am taking medicine, dieting, blood fat has decreased a lot. I have high blood pressure since 2014. Recently, I feel a little pain in my left chest, sometimes it throbs for about 3-5 seconds. Ask the doctor what is the symptom of chest pain on the left side? Recently in May 2021, I had an echocardiogram and the result was tricuspid valve regurgitation 2/4, so is it okay?

With the question “What is the sign of pain in the left chest? ", the doctor would like to answer as follows:
You have a history of high blood pressure, are being treated for hyperlipidemia, and are currently feeling chest tightness, these symptoms are related to each other. First, you should do an electrocardiogram to see if there is myocardial ischemia or arrhythmia. The test results will help your doctor accurately diagnose the disease and advise you on treatment. And 2/4 tricuspid regurgitation on ultrasound may not cause chest pain as you describe.
If you still have questions about left chest pain, you can go to a hospital of Vinmec Health System for further examination and advice. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wish you a lot of health.
