I have a dull chest pain, what should I do?

I have a dull chest pain, what should I do ? A couple of years ago i was in worse shape then I m in now. I m actually not too bad. I m 6 2 230 lbs. For a while though i was under alot of stress with work (retail management), and my father and grandfather died in a 3 month time. I was stressed out. My doctor wanted to put me on a very very mild blood pressure pill. I told him no, i wasn t going to start taking a pill for the rest of my life at the age of 22. I m now 24. My work is far less, i am in better shape, and i eat better.... well better than back then, Recently i have been consuming alot of bad food and drinking alot of caffine style drinks ya know. I have in the past gotten this pain in my chest. It s a real dull pain that worries me and yet doesn t. I only seems to be felt when i breath in deep. And it s pretty much located right where one would put the hand for the pledge of allegience. My avg blood pressure is usually in the 140 s-150 s and the 80 s to low 90 s. Do you think i should get this checked out like asap?

Yep, but it could be stress tightening you chest muscles and mimicKing heart issues. But get it checked out for sure, I would do the BP med, your BP is borderline hypertension.

Hello, I am 38 and I never exersize and am a stay at home dad, I have had dull pain in my left side chest erea come and go on and off for about a year or so.Last night I woke up to the pain back and I thought heart attack.But I had no numbness, no breathing problems and no heart attack yet. This pain is dull and not sharp and it is like I got hit or kind of like I worked out that part of my body. The pain is not bad but worrys me a bit, I dont want to die of a heart attack,I want to die in some sort of battle or mabey a good fight,I want to know I about to die before I do,so it scares me that I might die in my sleep. Should I go to the doctor or is it just a sore muscle, becouse I am still not dead yet.

Hi- I had done Mibi test recently and Rest tomographic slice show a small to moderate sized defeat involving the inferolateral Wall with normal wall motion. However, the result shows that Mibi shows the inferolateral rest defect was mostly corrected by with the CT attenuation correction. I have sometime dull chest pain when I excercise. CAD test should blockage less than 50%. I am 44 yrs old with family history of heart problem. I do NOT have high blood pressure. Here are the questions. 1.     SHOULD QUITE EXERCISE or CONTINUE? Or should change the exercise intensity – walk instead of run? How long? Etc. 2.     Should go for the Catherization and coronary Angiograms? Concerned due to invasive nature of it. 3.      Should repeat MIBI – Mibi shows the inferolateral rest defect was mostly corrected by with the CT attenuation correction. 4.     Should repeat the CAD test?

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
