I have fainted twice and when I exercise I get chest pains.

I have fainted twice and when I exercise I get chest pains, someone know what this is? I used to go to the gym 4 days a week. I also used to do aerobics but after I started to get pain in my chest so I had to stop all exercise activity. I have had billions of tests to my chest etc and they cannot find anything. I found out though that I have a merour. maybe spelt wrong. I cannot exercise and really want to to get into shape and loose weight as not exercising has caused me to put on weight quickly.

you have a murmur probably. You can still excercise mildly (taking the stairs instead of the lift, walking places) but no high-activity stuff. You may also have low OR high bloodpressure and not have eaten enough when you fainted. You can still lose weight by watching what you eat and doing simple mild excercise, but don't over-exhaust yourself.

I have been having mild chest pain for the last few days. It s been mainly on the right side. It s a dull ache which comes and goes. I do not have a cough, congestion, fever, etc. It does not hurt when I take a deep breath or move around and it actually seems to be relieved when I exercise.

About 8 months my ribs started to hurt. At first it was sharp burning pain in my chest when I exercised and breathed. Now it has spread so my ribs and upper back are constantly sore. Sharp pain on my ribs in the front come and go. And the area around my sternum often hurts. Any ideas?

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
