Women don't get heart attacks if they are menstruating. Its only after menopause. You better consult your doctor.

I am a 33 yr old female and I swear I have heart issues. I have had so many test done for my heart and everything has come back 100% normal. i have had countless number of EKG s I have a 48 heart montior I had a echo of my heart. my bp is a little high (bottom number in the low 80 s) my cholesterol total is 166. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and my Dr (bless his heart he is awesome) says all the things I feel is related to my panic not heart. Is there really anything else they could do to test my heart or did I pretty get everything? My doc said he wouldn t send me for a cardic cath cuz everything else was fine. Yes I do take meds to my panic attacks.

So last night and tonight, actually started close to the same time I started having a slight almost tightness feeling, in the left side of my chest pretty much where the bottom rib is around that area. So it doesn t really hurt but I feel something there, it hasn t been there during the day yesterday or today, and it went away a little before I went to be last night. I didn t do anything strenuous or to get my heart rate up before either time. I have no other symptoms of a heart attack I looked them up, and I keep burping after it happens, and then as soon as I burp it feels like heart burn for a sec and then goes away what is this ?
