Question: Buzzing in Chest


 keleighnesta - Sat Jan 20, 2007 10:36 pm

I am 29 year old female that has been recently feeling a "buzzing sensation" in my chest on the right side. It will happen at random times and never lasts longer than maybe ten seconds. Currently I am taking a multivitamin and Yaz birth control. I do smoke about a pack every two days. I cannot explain the buzzing feeling - it does not hurt but I can feel it when I place my hand on my chest. Do I need to see a doctor? If so, what type of doctor and tests would have to be done? When I was born, my mother told me I had a heart murmur but that is not the case now. Thank you for your time and help. I have searched the internet but have not come up with any information.

User avatar Hello,

Do you have any history of recent medical problems like diarrhea , vomiting , fever?

Your complaint could be due to one of these causes:
- Electrolyte imbalance: I think you should be checked for your blood electrolyte levels.

- Yaz side effect: Consideration should be taken also for the drug Yaz which has been reported to cause chest pain.

- Cardiac causes should be excluded and ECG should be done although these are atypical symptoms.

Follow up with your doctor is essential.
Best regards.
