    Is lack of blood to the heart the only type of pain related to the heart?

    There are different characteristics and precipitating factors that we as physicians ask the patients when trying to determine whether the chest pain is truly due to a lack of blood to the heart or not. There are multiple other causes of chest pain. With respect to the heart, one can also experience chest pain secondary to inflammation of the outer sac of the heart, called pericarditis. This pain is typically worse when one lies down and better on sitting up. The most common cause is a viral syndrome. Therefore, it is usually preceded by a fever or cold or flu like symptoms.
