okay so heres my story. Im 24years of age, weigh 150lbs, workout reguraly, and eat healthy. I also quit smoking 2 years ago due to chest pain, and headaches while i would smoke. I do not do any drugs or drink, because i get very sick. I also have a five year old son. I remember the day i first experienced chest pain. It was about 4years ago, and i was pumping gas, when all of a sudden a sharp stabbing pain came threw my chest, by my heart area. At first I wanted to call an ambulance, but decided to drive my self to ER. Chest xrays, EKG, and blood came back normal, except my potassium level was extremely low. SO they gave me this big horse, see threw pill, and sent me on my way. Meanwhile, something else seemed to be happening in my body. I was having excuriating headaches, that would come on very dull, and then explode like a firecracker near my temples. They sometimes would affect my vision. MY wieght was going from up to down, and it just seemed like i was just a wreck. Finally the one thing doctors could rule out, is that i had a very ugly diseased gall bladder that needed removal. During the examination before surgury, I explained to my doctor, of headaches, chest pain, dizziness, extreme fatigue, nausea and upset stomach and weight gain where among my symptoms. She ordered up a few tests, inlcuding an ECHO, in which it was discovered that I did have a heart murmur with LOW regurgitation(but at that time still my EKGS where normal), and a cyst on my kidney. In all I was able to get my gall bladder removed, and was told to have heart and kidney followups. Well that was 3 years ago. In the between time I was suffering, feeling like im dieing, my EKGS went from normal to Abnormal, and was told only because of age. It was ruled out aniexty was the diagnose. Now, I have in total went to the ER on 7 different occasions, where one time my EKG was showing a slight heart attack, so the doctor says, but blood work was fine. On all occasions my symptoms where shortness of breath, chest pain, and headaches. my blood pressure on this one occasion was very high, in which they took me back right away, and put me on a heart monitor, and all was fine. I actually have walked out the ER 3x times before speaking to the doctor, because i felt like they didnt care, or wasnt listening to my symptoms because of my AGE. Today has been the worst of my pains ever. I was driving then all of a sudden i couldnt breathe, and i got so weak i felt like i couldnt drive. I literally feel like my life is slipping out of me, and im dieing from heart failure. My primary doctor knows my history. but hasnt sent me to see a cardo doctor yet, only a nero doctor. He also prescribed me migrane pills, and zololoft(which he promised that it would take away my chest pain 100%) I have stopped taking all his medicine because it doesnt work. Im utterly confused, and lost at the point. My mother died at 44 of a heart aneurysm, and my grandma(from dads side) is suffering from heart failure right now. The last 3x times i came down with these crazy espisodes(atleast thats what i call them), i felt like i was going to die, but i didnt even bother to go to ER, because how can you diagnose a condition if there not even ordering tests to determine the underlying cause? If anybody could help me understand, please reply to this message

I have been having chest pains for a while now, not exactly sure how long. A few weks at least. They re kind of in the center and a separate pain in my ribs. Sometimes it gets so bad that I can t move. I was told it s probably just heartburn but anti acids don t help

I am 80 yrs old and good health. I do tradmill every morning for 30 minutes. I walk and run on tradmill. Work 10 to 12 hrs a day on computer. Keep myself very active outside with organisations. I had severe pain a week ago on middle right side of my chest. Got x-rays and my Primary doctor says that I have Degenerative thorax of my upper back. I do not have any pain now. Doctor suggesting to take Physical Therapy. My question is that I do not have the same pain for a week now and if the PT is not going to get rid of it how the PT is helping me. Will Endoscopy get rid of it?Thanks.Prabhat Kaikini

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?

I used to use primatine mist until the drug companies and epa managed to get the fda to ban it. Now I am using the ventolin inhaler prescribed by my doctor. One lasts me about 2 to 3 months and the Dr. says I am using too much. I have had absolutely no side effects whatsoever, and I am wondering what she will offer me if I can t get the ventolin as I need it. I was a heavy smoker for many years and quit several months ago. I get congested in the evening and overnight but not so I can t breathe but just uncomfortable. I am in good shape and exercise every day and can work most guys my age, 76, under the table. During the day I feel just fine. It s only around bedtime and first thing in the morning that I use the inhaler. I think I can be the judge as to when and how much I use the inhaler. I have an appointment on coming Thursday and will see what the Dr. is going to say.
