Hi there, I have been getting mild chest pains for the last four days, yesterday I phoned NHS 24 and thay advised me to go to the hospital. I was seen by a pleasant doctor who checked me out quite thoroughly, did an ECG to make sure it wasn t my heart, she thinks it may be esophageal spasm and prescribed me peppermint oil tabs, so far I ve only had one and no change. My chest feels like there is pressure on it, just because the ECG and other checks were ok, can I be sure there isn t an underlying problem that hasn t been picked up, my uncle has a heart condition which wasn t picked up with an ECG. I have young children to look after and I m experiencing other health problems such as breathlessness when doing normal activities like chores, I saw my own GP about this months ago and a series of blood tests ruled out anemia, I just want to feel normal again. Thanks Christine.

Sharp pain in my chest while driving. Nearly had to stop such is the severity of it. Then broke out in a clammy sweat. Has eased now just a dull chest pain. I have Costochondritis and have experienced bad pain but this is new. Should I be overly worried about this?

My Dad is 97 and living in an assisted living place. I just called him at 7 pm tonight and he said that he was having some mild chest pain and it was a little harder for him to breathe. Over the phone I could hear some sound of him breathing. I asked him if he needed some help, and he said no, that he would just be going to sleep in a little while. I left a message with the caregiver, who takes care of 10 people in his group. Do you have any other suggestions on a Saturday night? Thanks.

My 4 year old son has a long history of illness since he was 7 months old. He is not getting better and has been much worse since his last surgery for tubes and cauterization of the lower turbinates. He has been treated with vancomycin twice now and it seems to be the only medicine he reacts to. Just recently we got back some bad blood tests (high white blood cell counts, really high platelet counts, normal range red blood cells, high MCV, High Lymphs absolute, high monocytes absolute, immunoglobulin is low. We are waiting on approval from our insurance to get immunoglobulin infusions done on our son. We do not have a diagnosis other than they say his immune system is low. Any thoughts of what could be going on? We are really worried!
