Chest pain is a significant symptom which can be caused by conditions including: heart disease, clot in the lung, chest disease, and indigestion. It may also be caused by less serious disease such as muscle strain. It requires careful assessment and appropriate investigation.
Negligence claims may arise where a serious cause of chest pain has been missed and attributed to a trivial cause because of inadequate assessment and investigation.
