Chest pain is not a diagnosis on its own. Chest pain is always treated as an indication of a more serious health problem. Pain while breathing, pain in the chest muscles or ribs, and pain coupled with a band-shaped rash are some common chest pain symptoms.

These are applicable to chest pain in women, angina chest pain, anxiety chest pain, and right-chest pain. There are many causes of chest pain. Some include, but are not limited to:

• Aortic dissection
• Anxiety or panic disorder
• Asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, pleuritis
• Benign right chest wall pain
• Coronary artery disease and cardiac syndrome X that results in angina
• Chest trauma
• Diabetes
• Heartburn
• Heart attack
• High blood pressure
• Estrogen-related Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) causes chest pain in women
• Mitral valve prolapse
• Obesity
• Pericarditis
• Peptic ulcer
• Smoking
• Use of cocaine and other stimulants

Right chest pain occurs due to gastritis, gall bladder disease, liver inflammation, and problems with the digestive tract.
