Resumo

Chest pain on the left side can be a sign of heart problems, so it is very common that when it appears, the person thinks they might be having a heart attack. However, this type of pain can also indicate less serious problems, such as excessive intestinal gas, reflux or an anxiety attack, for example. This article aims to carry out a brief review of the literature on the possible causes of pain from the left side of the chest.
