Why do I have chest pains when I go outside in cold weather?


Answer by  slkunz2003yahoocom (836)

When you step outside in cold weather, you automatically breathe in the cold and usually moist air. This cold air is painful when it enters your lungs, and the more cold air you breathe in, the more your lungs temporarily "freeze". It would feel like chest pain, when in truth, it is your lungs.

Chest pains in cold weather would come from having respiratory problems. An illness such as emphysema, bronchitis or even congestive heart failure would limit chest expansion. The cold temperatures cause the tracheal and lung structures to narrow and that compression causes pain.

Going out into the cold air can trigger whats called cold-air angina. This is chest pain and discomfort caused by inhaling cold air. Cold weather may also trigger life-threatening cardiac events, such as heart attack. A recent study found that those with congestive heart conditions were at higher risk of dying as temps become colder.
