Be careful taking so much Apirin each day..it is not just a pain reliever..it is also what is termed..anti-coagulant. It thins the blood and makes you suceptible to bleeding and easily bruising. My advice as a registered nurse is to go to your doctor and explain what has been going on. They can then order the appropriate blood work up and talk to you about the results and things to do regarding your health. Tell them about your familial history too, it is important. Stay safe and get cracking to the doctor ok..:)

For some reason, I feel tired all the time. I get full nights rest, I m a homemaker with no worries, I m happy. I have had my blood tested for hormones, thyroid, anemia , you name it. I am not pumped after I exercise, I m exhausted. I breath fine and have no chest pains, but could it STILL be my heart, may be? If not, then what the HELL is wrong with me!

Last night, my heart started beating irregularly, maybe fast and it was slightly painful. The pain was in my right chest and my right shoulder blade. I also had a heart burn feeling for a few minutes in my chest and between my shoulder blades. I was shaking, I had chills like I had a fever. My hands and feet were hurting as if they were really swelled but they were not. I felt weak. There were a few times I felt like I needed to cough. Now this morning, I feel okay, in comparison to last night. I feel sore, my chest, my upper back and my neck. My hands and feet still have the painful, swelled feeling even tho, they look normal. And I have a little headache. I ve been having and irregular heartbeat on and off for a while. I was hoping it was anxiety. But it s never been this bad. Thank you, Krista.(31)

I m a 47 female with a history of anxiety. However, I am a firm believer that my anxiety is a reaction from the pain I expierience and not the other way around. I went to my Cardiologist last December and he performed, Echo, EKG, Blood Test, Ultrasound, and even checked my Carotid Artieries (for stroke)... All negative Today I have been expieriencing the following discomfort: pain in and around the collarbone (both sides), pain in and around both shoulderblades, tightness in front of upper chest, pain under my chin. Any suggestions? I also take an aspirin every morning... is that more harmful than helpful?

Hi! My mother s family has a history of heart disease. My maternal grandfather died of a heart attack in his sixties. My maternal grandmother suffered a stroke and died in her early sixties. My mother is currently in her late 50 s and suffers high blood [pressure from time to time. She is on daily medication for her B.P. A few days ago she got continuiing chest pains and went to the doctor. They told her that her arteries are fine but since she has had hypertension sometimes, this has resulted in the weakening of something (aorta?) How serious is this? is it curable? is it a guarantee that she too will suffer an early heart attack like her parents? Is there a way to beat genetics? Thank you.
