Serious chest pains!!! I think I'm about to have a heart attack!!!? Serious chest pains!!! I think I m about to have a heart attack!!!? My heart feels like it s being crushed inside my chest. It has such bad pains several times a day, that I literally grab my chest and freeze. Sometimes it even brings me too my knees. I can fell and see it pounding all day. Here s the thing, I am a recovering alcoholic addict. I used cocaine for about two years. Averaging about two grams a week about 20 weeks a year. I know this has something to do with it but the pains have been going on since before the drugs, just not as bad. I ve gone to my doctor and he said, What the hell were you thinking!? He just recommended exercise, a good diet and obviously no more drugs. I have done all that but it seems to get worse every day. I m afraid to go back to him because he s kind of an a$$hole. I had another doctor before him and all that guy said was You re going to be a train wreck by the time you re 40 . Any ideas of what else might be going on? Please remember, I am a recovering addict, I no longer use I am only 25 years old. No family history of heart disease .
