    This could be related to gallbladder and even pancreas problems, especially if it arises after eating. However, you need to exclude heart related conditions like angina, especially if you are in the high risk group for developing these conditions. You should speak to your doctor immediately and undergo the necessary investigations. Pain like this may be the only symptom for months or years in heart conditions.

    The difficulty breathing during these episodes is another cause for concern and may be indicative of a cardiac cause. However this is not the only cause – other conditions affecting the lung, liver, diaphragm, and colon, may also cause these symptoms. However, you should have noted other symptoms as well. Another possibility is chest wall pain, which can cause severe pain and restrict deep breathing. You can find more information in the article below but you should report this to your doctor as soon as possible.
