Can Constipation Cause Chest Pain?


Hi there. Eric Bakker, Naturopath. Thank you for coming back and looking at this
video. I have a question here from a gentleman in
England who wants to remain anonymous and he asks me can constipation cause chest pain? Well, I’ve not heard that one before, but
I know that constipation can cause a lot of different problems in the body. If you are constipated, and you do have pain
in your body, it’s really a smart idea for you to get the constipation fixed and see
if it’s linked with that pain. So, yeah, in this particular instance, I can’t
say yes or no. What I can say to the person is he needs to
get the constipation sorted. Look at some of my other video’s and try and
put some of this information into practice. Who knows? There could well be a link between the pain
and the constipation. You’ve got a poor nerve supply in the digestive
organs and the only real way you’re going to feel that there’s something wrong with
it is often if there’s an enlargement or bloating or pressure on a nerve. So, it could well be that there’s a lot of
build up, or pressure, inside the body that could be causing pain coming up to this chest
region. But, we’ll only know that by you getting this
constipation cleared. I certainly do know that constipation’s been
linked to back pain and lower abdominal pain, even pain down the legs for some people. When I thought it was a kidney pain, when
in fact it was their bowel blocked up. So, yes, if you’ve got chest pain, and you’ve
got constipation, you certainly need to get the constipation fixed. But, also, you need to go to the doctor and
go and get some blood tests done, get your blood pressure checked, just to make sure. You haven’t told me how old you are, your
age, you could be an older person. At my age, you could have potential for blood
pressure or things like that. When in doubt, you know the word, check it
out. Go to the doctor and get it checked out. But, try to get that bowel working first,
that might solve the chest pain. Thanks for tuning in and thanks for the question.
