I have been getting really weird chest pains

This has been happeing to me for a couple of years, and it is usually unexpected. I get this sharp pain like right under my left breast near my heart. I cannot breath to quickly because it feels like i will explode so i have to take tiny tiny breaths untill it goes away. It is kind of scary because i dont know what will happen if i breath in any deeper, im scared i might get a heart attack? if any one has experianced something close to this or has any info could u please help me? i havnt seen a doc about this and my friends say they have gotten it too a couple of times but its still scary. thanx

See a Doctor immediately... don't play with your health. It is the unfortunate truth about our society.... we don't take proactive care untill it gets too late. We don't fall sick in one day. The body is capable of self repair untill the capacity is full up after which symptoms like you have been experiencing start appearing. Get medical help before your body organs can cope no longer and crash. It is foolish to think your work is more important.... if that is keeping yu away from the doctor. Preventive health care costs are thoroughly justified...... at least you KNOW the problem and can tale holistic care... meaning body - mind- spirit. This goes for all your friends too. you must have heard the saying..... "a stitch in time saves nine...." read www.helthsolns.com to give you an insight into what may possibly be going on... but this is not a substitute to avoiding the doctor.!

Hello Doctor my names Erik and I m a 23 year old male and recently I have been expierencing some weird pains in my chest lately. Accompaning these chest pains I have continuous soreness in parts of my left arm ( sometimes loss of strength) and jaw pains. The line of work I am involved in is highly stressful; could the pains be coming from anxiety? I have had a EKG done as well as a ECG and both came out normal. I also had a series of blood tests completed due to a possible kidney transplant I will be undergoing at the end of the year. I will not be receiving the kidney but actually donating it. At night I wake up with chest pains and the only way I get some sort of relief is placing my body in awkward positions ( kinda stretching the chest muscles). One more thing; I have been having cloudy vision in the outter portion of my eyes. It moves from eye to eye. It doesn t last forever but long enough to be bothersome. I monitor my blood sugar and thats in the correct range. I don t have history of heart disease or diabetes. I have another heart doctor appointment next week Friday. Can you give me some advise on what s going on.

My dad had a kidney removed because of cancer, while recovering in hospital he had a heart attack, they diagnosed him with heart disease and arteriosclerosis. He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting. Today he kind of passed out and twitched a little out of nowhere for a few seconds. What should we do? in regards to diet any home remedies that relieve pain or should we call an ambulance? I need help!!!

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
