Cardiologist Questions BP medication

Can BP medicines cause chest pain?

I am a 45 year old woman and I have been taking BP medications for the last six months. These last two days my chest has been feeling heavy along with a slight chest pain. Could it be a side effect of the BP medications that I am taking?

Unlikely. But it could be angina – if it's made worse by walking uphill you should see your GP urgently.
Most likely not
No, not likely, would get a good history, physical exam, blood tests, and echocardiogram, and go from there, but no.
Usually not. Consider reflux.
No, you may want to see a cardiologist so they can order the appropriate tests such as echo and stress test.
