I started feeling pain around my heart and it got a lot worse when I start walking
I started feeling pain around my heart . It would hurt to breathe. The pain went down my left arm. I rested for 20 minutes and it got less painful but as soon as I stood up the pain would return. The pain would get alot worse when I start walking. Could this be a minor heart attack? I am planning to go see a cardiologist . Yes, I already went to see a doctor and I am currently waiting for the cardiologist to call me.
No, you didn't have a heart attack, as far as your symptoms are concerned they can be due to anxiety, or stimulants, hard to tell as you have not mentioned your age.
Better check out in ER or doctor, but at the earliest.
