I just experienced these very weird feelings tonight while on here and for the first time 2 days ago. I am a bit concerned they could be early warnings of a stroke/ heart attack. I am over 35 and do smoke and take the pill. I am not over weight, have low cholesterol, BP, etc and my GP says a low dose estrogen pill for me is okay.
Here are the symptoms- I know in women they can be different than men. It starts with intense and sudden pain on the bones of both jaws and then is followed by a tightness in my forehead and then a crushing pain in an oval right above my breasts in the center of my chest. Along with that, I am just awash with a general ill feeling and then after about 10-15 minutes it passes. I will ask my GP Monday about this but do any of you know if these could be warning signs.? Thanks
Thanks- I am fully aware of the risks and trust my GP. In cases of NO other risk factors being present, as in my case, smoking women over 35 only have a 1% greater risk than others on the pill. I am not asking for a DX, just curious if anyone has heard of these symptoms. :)
