Is chest pain on the left a symptom of Basedow?
Hello doctor. About a month ago, I felt a tightness in my left breast above my chest. Usually lying face down will feel better, sometimes have to take a deep breath to get air. Besides, I've been on Graves' treatment for nearly 2 years now, my heart condition is still stable. Looking for advice on my situation.
I would like to thank you.

Hello, thank you for sending your question to Vinmec.
Which hospital are you currently receiving Graves treatment at, have you been treated regularly, when was your last follow-up visit, have your thyroid hormone tests returned to normal?
Through your description, the doctor cannot make an accurate conclusion about your condition, nor can it determine if you have a heart-related problem. Therefore, you can go back to the Endocrinology and Cardiology department at medical facilities of Vinmec Health System nationwide for more detailed examination and advice. Your doctor may order you to have an additional ECG and echocardiogram to rule out heart problems. Because, heart-related problems have many serious consequences for life.
