I have been having chest pain (sharp but not not extremely painfull) on the left side of my chest for 5 months now. With this I have been getting lightheaded (dizzy) , the lightheadedness has been getting more and more frequent over the last 2 months. It almost feels like something in my heart is clogged and then it releases and this rush of lightheaedness goes through my body. I am 30 and I do smoke but since getting this I have cut back from approx 18 cigarettes a day to 6 a day or so. My caffine intake is not a worry to my doctor. I have had 4 children the youngest being just 1yrs olda week ago. They have checked my heart all out, quite well and done a lung scan. All normal. I did have an upper GI and it came back I do have a moderate amount of acid reflux and started Perriet (I not sure about the spelling of that) which does nt seem to be doing much. I am so scared as the is a history of blood clots and heart attacks in my family (my mom has had 2 brain clots). The chest pain is here almost all the time now (more then not). Please help, Also the pain is not always on the left side but mostly, it has gone to the right, and down my left arm too.

I have been having chest pains on and off for two years. I get a sever tighness in my chest just above my heart. After doing many tests they found that I have an accending thoracic arotic anurysm. I have gone to the hospital serval times since. My symtoms are always the same. I get a heavy sever pain in the same area. moving doesn t change it. After a few moments I feel like someone has tied something around my chest and is cutting off the circulation to the left side of my chest, left shoulder and left arm. It then travels up the left side of my neck and feels like a large hand has spread out over the left side of my head and face and is tring to pop it. Then my left temple begins to have a sudden pain, pulse for a split second the fade away for a few moments. My anuerysm is a 4.1 and I have been told that it will have no symtems. Today I have had 7 nitro pills and the pain will ease up then come back again strong. History has shown that it will pass and I will be wesk for a few days and find it hard to stay awake. I am tird of going to the hospital I feel like they think Im crazy. What should I do?

last night while eating an orange I started to choke. Iwas coughing quite hard and then I could not get an air. My chest was suddenly very painful and the pain radiated down both my arms. I blacked out and when I came to the orange piece was on the rug beside my mouth and the pain was gone. What happened to me.
