Anytime you have pain or even numbness in your body you need to see a doctor. Chest pain can be life threatening. It also might be a pinched nerve, which is serious, but not immediately life threatening. It's difficult without health insurance. You can just go to the emergency room. You could also ask friends and coworkers to recommend a doctor (since you've had this condition for awhile, even though it seems to be serious). You can also search google for a free medical clinic near you. This link is for a free medical clinic in Concord, NC. I hope it's close to your location. http://www.communityfreeclinic.org/default.htm

I am a 57 year old woman. I have hypertension well controlled with prescription meds for 2 years. recently I went for routine exam, doc asked me whether I had shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, lightheadedness, or left arm tingling. No to all of the above. Why did doc recommend echo stress? BTW: my results came back normal (Thank goodness!), yet now I have a $9,000 bill for a test that was normal. Could any other test have been done as a heart function screen before the echo stress?
