Heart attack warnings or a pulled muscle

ok about a week ago i jumped in my bed to lay down,when i landed i felt this pain near my heart so i got up and went to my moms for comfort,grasping my chest all week i been having this faint pain near my heart but only when i move in certain positions,i do not feel it now but i i layed on my side i might feel it, i have layed flat on my stomach and not felt a thing i doesnt hurt when i breathe or anything,but there is this really faint pain that just comes whenever i get in a certain position, sometimes i l punch the air 50 times really fast just to speed my heart and see if it hurts,but it never hurts,only when i lay down in a certain position. i am going to the docs monday to get a checkup

Sounds like you pulled a muscle, and those chest muscles seem to be easy to pull for some reason. I've had scares just like you described, too! The fact that you're still here a week later talking about it tells us that your heart is probably fine.

49yo female. Recent 12 lead ECG test displayed I had a heart attack. Believe it happened few nights prior, waking me out of sleep. Had warning sign of heartburn sensation but didn t realize it until after the fact. Had an echocardio gram that showed no blockage. Have a stress test scheduled but if echo showed no blockage (taken when body at rest, as it was when I thought I had a heart attack)...do I really need to do the stress test??... thinking what I thought was a heart attack, may really only be a sleep disorder experience

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

How long can a heart attack last? My dad just had severe chest pain on the opposite side of his heart with shortness of breath...then it went away maybe 5-10 minutes it lasted. I checked his pulse...it seemed in the normal range and listened to his heart...it had normal rate and rhythm I think....I am way over my head with this. He did not feel an ambulance would be necessary. How do I know when it might be bad enough to call an ambulance? ...maybe it was pulled muscle? hernia? what if I ignore it at the wrong time?

After years on Toprol and enalpril I have a 50 EF. with a pretty normal echo result. Question: I am having some pain discomfort around my site and tingling pain down my left arm with extreme tentinitus ? in my left arm. I have recently been doing some lite arm movements in the pool such as swimming movements etc. If I bother my cardiologist could he easily determine this is not a lead problem etc. Or will it be hard to give me an answer for the pain. I just had a scheduled remote check up and medtronic e-mail back said all is well. I can get in pretty easy to see my Doctor but really think this is exercise related. What ya Think?
