Non-Cardiac Chest Wall Pain

Relief for Non Cardiac Chest wall pain can be difficult to come by. Quite often a full evaluation is done to rule out cardiac sources of chest pain but if none are found consideration of non cardiac causes can be lacking.

Non Cardiac Chest wall pain refers to chest pain secondary to musculoskeletal or inflammatory causes. The pain may be secondary to a muscle strain in the chest wall itself, or in the back. It may be secondary to sprained ligaments in the neck, mid back, shoulder or chest wall itself. It may be due to nerve entrapment, irritation or to non cardiac vascular sources (such as thoracic outlet syndrome).

Relieve Weather Sensitive Pain

Many people believe that weather-sensitive pain is a myth, a complaint taught to them by their parents to explain why they were grouchy or not feeling well on any particular day. Recently, however, the medical community has come on board, reporting that the phenomenon is real.

What is confusing is that the barometric pressure is the determining factor, not the weather we see outside at the moment. Most often a falling barometer is the culprit, although in a minority of cases the opposite can be true. The effect is also more pronounced the colder it is.
