User :   Well sometimes when i am sitting then i can feel a little sting in my hearth (like when i sit downwards with my head so that my stomach and hearth area goes closely together) and also when i exercise my hearthrate goes to like 180-190 in a matter of minutes... like 3 minutes and after like the half exercise i feel weird... a little dizzy and such and hard to breath so i stop exercising and go to shower... where i feel a little weird also because of the thing air, then i go outside and then i get a panic attack (i have a health anxiety) because i feel these little stings in my hearth they last like 1 second and come like 2-3 at a time and then it quits
and well... ive been getting like a huuuge inflammable muscle on my neck and get headaches often because of it... just wondering if there could be a connection or something
anyways now im feeling this slight stings around my hearth area lasting 1-2 seconds and come like 1-3 at a time, and then boom i found a heavy hearth pound and its like the stings went away
pretty weird......
i quit smoking like 2-3 weeks ago also :) if this maybe has anything to do with it
but what can these stings and the hard pound be ?
