I have a serious chest pains,kindly help me

Serious chest pains!!! I think I'm about to have a heart attack!!!? Serious chest pains!!! I think I m about to have a heart attack!!!? My heart feels like it s being crushed inside my chest. It has such bad pains several times a day, that I literally grab my chest and freeze. Sometimes it even brings me too my knees. I can fell and see it pounding all day. Here s the thing, I am a recovering alcoholic addict. I used cocaine for about two years. Averaging about two grams a week about 20 weeks a year. I know this has something to do with it but the pains have been going on since before the drugs, just not as bad. I ve gone to my doctor and he said, What the hell were you thinking!? He just recommended exercise, a good diet and obviously no more drugs. I have done all that but it seems to get worse every day. I m afraid to go back to him because he s kind of an a$$hole. I had another doctor before him and all that guy said was You re going to be a train wreck by the time you re 40 . Any ideas of what else might be going on? Please remember, I am a recovering addict, I no longer use I am only 25 years old. No family history of heart disease .

Woah not all people have the same symptoms with a heart attack. Not all people have left arm pain or numbness. Some people only complain that there is an elephant on their chest. Some people only complain of heart burn, As a cardiac nurse I agree whole heartedly with a trip to the ER!

Recently I ve been getting quite serious heart and chest pains, one I remember the most is where I was unable to do anything due to immense pain where it seemed everytime my heart beat I would it would hurt a lot! I also had a pain also around my heart today when walking down stairs where I couldn t walk or anything because the pain was that great, although it was only for a few seconds. A week of so ago they were uncommon, but I seem to be getting about 4 or 5 a day now. I m only 16 and I ve already been to see my GP but they couldn t (or wouldn t) help. What shall I do, do you think it s serious? Blood pressure has been tested and is normal.

My 12 year old daughter complains with constant stomach pain and chest pain. A couple weeks ago her pediatrician put her on zantac. It doesn t seem to help. Should I be worried that it is something other than heartburn or reflux and take her to a different doctor?

I am writing about my 14 year old son, who has been ill repeatedly 4 times for the past 7 weeks. He s been on antibiotics all 4 times, struggles to recover until his antibiotics are nearly gone, finally feels better for a few days and then gets it again. We are wondering if it is valley fever. Can that come with congestion/sinus symptoms? He s been diagnosed with sinus infections each time, but develops not only significant congestion/sinus symtpoms, but also chest pain, horrible coughing, fatigue, sore throat, and is miserable. He has faithfully taken not only strong antibiotics, but prescription strength cough syrup/decongestant, Flonase nasal spray, Zyrtec once a day, and breathing treatments up to 4 times a day, along with vitamin C and lots of fluids. He is otherwise very healthy, but his doctor is concerned that perhaps it is not really sinus infections he has had. I cannot find on the internet where there is a connection between congestion/sinus symptoms and Valley Fever - curious about that as others have asked if he has been tested for it. We live in Phoenix. As a young child he had repeated ear infections, but 4 years ago at age 10 he had his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in his ears, and a major sinus surgery. He has been very healthy ever since until now. Any ideas? Thank you verey much!

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer
