Not a heart attack. Welcome to the wonderful world of fibromyalgia. At least, that is what is sounds like. The pain in your chest, the muscles, or possibly the cartilage between your rips, ALl that pain, fibromyalgia. 6 month time not a heart attack warning. I bet you dont sleep well, right? I also will assume that you get bad migraines, or have in the past. I have it, and though I am no expert that is what it sounds like to me. First the good news, if that is by chance what you have, it wont kill you. Bad news, if that is by chance what you have, it wont kill you. Good luck. Email me if you want to talk.

Hi my husband has felt generally un well for the lat 4 days; it started with aching all over, feeling listless. He was like this for a day then improved although he sometimes felt a bit shivery. Yesterday he went to the loo a lot during the day, in the night he got up 5 times and now feels pretty awful, his temperature is unstable. Throughout this time he has had a painful neck. Can you help please.

Hi, I have been experiencing over the last 3 days Chills, a elevated temp, with aches and pains, and bad smelling farts that to this point seem to be getting better. But, the last 2 days I would drink lots of fluids eat only crackers and had a sandwich that so far has sat well with me, and I would take Tylenol and ib profen for the fever, aches, and pains and feel better to the point where I think that the flu or whatever infection it could be is better and then I start to get chills and get cold, and then the bad smelling farts would come. On the first night, I had a lot of the farts, and to this point it s every now and then. But just kinda confused on this one and would like to get some insight. Much thanks,

Hi Doctor, been after years now after Typhoid. But still have body pain. Even a small pat anywhere pains. Gone thru all the tests but nothing positive. Been on whole lot of medicines/injections for Vit B12. But no relief. Started living with the pain.

My friend has told me ( he is 82) that when he lies down on his right side his chest hurts. I noticed his shortness of breath two nights ago when we had to walk about 200 yards to a ball park. He is complaining of indigestion- 2 days now. He has had a stent for 10 years, otherwise is in good health. Last night he did not sleep well. He does not feel it is a heart problem as he saw his cardiologist 3 months ago and was dealing with just some high BP-= 130/90

Hi there. I am a 35 year old female 5'7 155 lbs with a 7 month old baby delivered by cesarean. I have had shortness of breath that worsens with physical exertion since the last month of my pregnancy but am otherwise in good health. The last 2 months it has been getting progressively worse to the point where I have to catch my breath sometimes in conversation. I am taking domperidone to increase my breastmilk production and have been for 2 months. I have been to the ER where I have had an ECG, ct scan, x-ray and bloodwork, as well as a pulmonary function test. All results were within normal ranges except my oxygen levels in my blood were low - however the test was taken peripherally, not through a central line. Also, my resting heart rate was 118, and when I did a stress test, within 2 minutes my heart rate was at 200. They are sending me for an echocardiogram next. Do you think this could be adult onset asthma or a reaction to domperidone or is it my heart?

ok my friend has trouble brething in his upper chest and has been throwing up blood for the past week. along with dyspnea and pain in his chest his throat has been so so swollen and his nodes on the front side of his neck have swollen as well. he has actually cried over the pain of the coughing fits. im worried for him cause i know its not normal. but to him im just his cute best friend with blonde hair and blue eyes who wants to be a doctor one day.:) hes very very fit 7-8% body fat hes a freaking tank. haha um upon going to the doctor they said they couldnt see down his throat soo whatever and sent hime home. he on multiple occaasions has said i cant breath and i think its very seriuos and so does he to an extent just doesnt think he can do anything about it. blunt force trauma with a rope occured last friday further proving somethgingss wrong! possibly an esophagal perforation or something like that?

I've had many CAT scans and heart moniters in the past to find out if there are any coronary issues. All thats been found is SVT. Sometimes it's better than others but on a more frequent basis my heart seems to pound pretty hard. The actual lub beat feels like it's going to pound out of my chest and I'm just sitting down. Many times this leads to panic and shortness of breath. I've been told there is nothing I can do about it. Does this mean I have a higher probability of heart failure? How can I control my heart pace? Are there any techniques other than breath control?
