Precordial catch syndrome. Look it up in Wikipedia. If you feel sharp pain in your left side of your chest, you should definitly get it checked out by a doctor.

I get pains just to the left centre of my chest but it goes after a few minutes. I may not get another one for a few weeks and it has been happening over the last 3 months. I put it down to indegestion but am now getting worried as it is still happening. Is this warning signs ? I don t get pains anywhere else while experiencing this. Re Thomas. I am 38, male and white British. My father had history of Angina. I have not taken anything for pain as it goes on it s own after 10 mins or so. It is a dull pain and I do not get sweaty or feel ill with it. I have no other symptoms other than this. I rarely drink but I do smoke. I do not take any other type of drug.It does not appear when I exercise it seems to be random. Thanks for your reply grant e

I don t want to panic. About 2 hours ago I feel sick to my stomach and suddenly couldn t hear very well. My ears are not ringing but they got suddenly congested and I couldn t hear. I feel very disconnected still. I felt faint and I could feel my heart beating in my chest like palpitations for about an hour. This started after I had a sudden attack of heartburn. I tried to do an internet search but I can t find anything to describe what is happening to me. I also felt kind of sweaty but no chest pains so I don t think its a heart attack. Can heartburn cause all these other symptoms? This happened right after I woke up and all I had to drink was some coffee. I ve been having heartburn off and on for about 6 months.

My gran passed away last week after complaining of awful chest pain through the night. She described it as if something in her chest was going to burst. However the doctor came out said her heart sounded fine and bp was fine too. The doctor prescribed zoton but told her if the pain remained after two hours to seek further medical assistance. She took the tabs a went for a snooze on the couch. 3 hours later she died were she lay. Her only other symptom was feeling really cold. I feel my gran may of suffeted a major heart attack during night she struggled through the pain saying it was worse than child birth. Doctor was happy to put down MI caused by ischaemic heart disease. Secondary to hypertention. Do you feel there was something else her doctor could of done. She was 93 but was very much mobile lived in her iwn home. Apart from hypertention which never caused her bother we thought she would see 100 for sure.

My husband was diagnosed today with an abnormal ekg and something else that I can't recall--he texted me his diagnosis. He with have to go in shortly for arthrascopy (sp?) and possible stents. His paternal uncle and father were both dead of heart disease by their late 60's. He is 64. We have been having a number of "falling outs" lately; we've been married for 39 years. I feel that his personality is changing. I've heard that this can happen with coronary heart disease. Is this true?
