Chest pain, hot flush, shoulder pain, jaw pain. Had heart ablation. What should I do?

Hi I am a 49 year old lady. I had a heart ablation last year, successful. But a year to the day I was out at Duxford and experienced a brief pain in my chest followed by awful burning in chest area that spread to my head and throughout my whole body, I was terrified, it passed after ten minutes. I went to A and E at Basildon Essex, they did and EGC and said i was ok. I thought I may have experienced my first hot flush. A week later I got a pain in my shoulder , which lasted a few seconds, then the burning sensation again. I had nothing else until today, when I experienced a short pain in jaw, then burning that lasted for 20 minutes then went. What should I do? Andrea

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You should see a doctor...
Any pain (atypical here) at this setting and age should be investigated as heart pain, unless proved otherwise – especially so, with a past history... You need to be investigated for Coronary Artery Disease. EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
