    Recently, I  have been experiencing a chest pain. It takes sometimes a week before it goes away. I think it is caused by stress or so many things I have been worried upon. Can lack of sleep also cause chest pain?

    Hi there, Chekie -


    I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you!  I hope you've long since discovered the cause of this chest pain and gotten some treatment for it.  It does sound like stress and lack of sleep were triggering your chest pain. I'm only a layperson though, and only a doctor can accurately diagnose the issue after an exam.


    If you did find out what was causing the pain and got treatment for them, perhaps you'd consider coming back and telling us how things turned out for you? Your experience might be invaluable to someone else suffering from the same symptoms.


    Here are some links that might be helpful for you in any case.  I hope the stress is much less now. Best of luck to you!
