Is it just a muscle spasm or a sore muscle near my heart ?

Hi sounds like angina, it can also be early signs of a heart attack. stress can cause you to have chest pain due to being anxious. it really is best to go to er let them check it out best time to go is when your having the attack. i been there my test showed i had a electrical issue with my heart. my heart beats and then the next beat is only half a beat which makes me very tired when it acts up. but by what your saying sounds like angina angina is a pain that feels sharp and it feels like your heat is actually hurting not your chest but your heart its self. i would still go to be safe. go to google search and type in symptoms of angina. wish you luck and dont play around with that to long. your life is important to alot of people that wouldnt want to be without you dont question heart pain every min counts. be safe for you and your loved ones and get it checked out god bless and good luck hope you feel better

I run and play recreational baseball. So, i think I m in good shape. These flutters/Spasm kinda worry me. Is it my heart or muscles around?

I have a question. Six months ago i pulled or tore a muscle on my upper body (my arms and chest) ever since then i had anxiety which it seen like it when away, but for about a month or two i been having heart spasms, but since a week i been having it a bit more frequent. To me it feels like heart spasms and maybe a little pause not sure. But the thing is i went to the beach a week ago and probably hurt my upper body again not sure.

Hi. I am 23 years old. I have sharp pains in the back of my head. I don t get them often but they hurt badly when I do. I have also been getting sharp pains in my chest around my heart. My biggest problem is my back. My whole back is aching all the time. My muscles feel stiff all day long. When I bend over it feels like my muscles are pulling apart. It is very painful and constant. My family doctor didn t seem too concerned. She gave me Naproxen which made me feel weird, and shaky and didn t help me at all. Then she gave me two different types of muscle relaxors which knock me out or make it so I cannot function and it didn t ease my muscles or my pain. I have a 4 year old daughter so I need to be able to function. Please give me advice.
