Chest pain comes in many different forms, and it can be caused by a variety of diseases. Chest pain can feel dull, sharp or stabbing, or it can feel like a burning sensation or immense pressure. Chest pain can also radiate to other parts of the body. Because chest pain can be caused by a large array of underlying conditions, your doctor may have to run a variety of tests to diagnose the source of your pain. These tests include an echocardiogram, stress test, coronary angiogram, and more.
