Hi cheyanna, Welcome to the forum. I am sorry you are having to deal with this terrible disease. My chest pain was from acid reflux and from spasms in the esophagus and the valve that opens into the stomach. Let your doctor know about it. Maybe the drugs are causing this side effect. For me, the medicine Protonix helped. Ask your doc if an over-the-counter med might help too. Sometimes just adjusting the way you take a med or the timing of it, can change the discomfort----like drinking plenty of water or eating food with a med, or not lying down right away after taking it, or not taking it with certain other things etc. Hopefully, they will find out what is causing this and you will feel better soon. Best wishes to you.

If you have a cough and you feel chest discomfort would you consider a chest X Ray, I have chest pain and back pain, sometimes  my hand too but its not a  cardiac issue as per my cardiologist, I take motrin 600 MG 2-3 times a day for a few days and it gets better, pain comes back and I am back on Motrin or whatever works for you
