I would strongly recommend ignoring any medical recommendations from anyone who is not accredited in the field of Medicine. Chest Pain can mean many things. It can be as simple as a pulled muscle, or as serious as a heart attack. I would recommend that any time you feel chest pain, have difficulty breathing, feel like you have pressure in your chest, or all of the above, you should call for help. If you're not aware of the signs and symptoms for a heart attack, or if you aren't sure, its better to have it ruled out by a doctor, or even a Paramedic. They can tell you if you seem to be having a Cardiac problem. I'm an instructor of other Paramedics, and even I can't diagnose you over the internet. So take all of this with a grain of salt. But never, EVER, hesitate to call 9-1-1 for any reason. It's there so you don't have to make these calls on your own. Good Luck, and Good Health!!!
