Hi @Angel , thank you for your question! Heart pain has a large number of possible causes. Unfortunately as it is too broad it is a bit hard to answer this question. However, heart pain that is triggered by minimal activity e.g. walking one bus stop, which is new and worsening is usually an indicator of a heart/lung problem. There are many other symptoms and signs which your physician will ask you about such as how you describe the pain (poking/sharp/dull ache), is the pain bothering your daily life? When do you feel the pain? Does the pain go anywhere or only at one specific point? Do you have any sweating or shortness of breath with pain? And many other questions. I would say if it is affecting your daily life and is worsening you should consult your GP or can consider telemedicine. rest assured the most common cause is still a muscular pain and not an actual heart problem/heart attack. I hope this helps!

Hi @Angel , I would agree with Dr Adnaan on this, heart pain is unfortunately too vague a symptom with a range of possible causes, some of which may require urgent medical attention. I would recommend for you to have a detailed consultation with a doctor as soon as possible for further assessment and advice on what you can do to address this.
