    For the record, i don't know if Minoxidil is the cause behind this, but it does say "chest pain" under side effects so I'm asking.

    Oh yes...good ole' minoxidil. I have a love-hate relationship with the stuff. A certain degree of systemic exposure will cause heart palpitations/chest pain/weird chest sensations for certain people. I only get this when I take it orally. Unfortunately, the more side effects the better hair growth, for me at least.

    Never had any chest pains with either topical or oral, only bloated face.

    If I apply minoxidil to my hair too close to bed time, I can hear my heart beat racing, almost ringing in my ears. I usually put it on now about 4 hours before I sleep and have had no issues since.

    Yes. Everybody has different reactions to medicine. Minoxidil did me no good. But it was great for my hair. Unfortunate.
