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'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
