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,

I am a 57 year old woman. I have hypertension well controlled with prescription meds for 2 years. recently I went for routine exam, doc asked me whether I had shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, lightheadedness, or left arm tingling. No to all of the above. Why did doc recommend echo stress? BTW: my results came back normal (Thank goodness!), yet now I have a $9,000 bill for a test that was normal. Could any other test have been done as a heart function screen before the echo stress?
