Sweetheart, it is always scary when someone you love is in pain, and the thought of losing them is a scary thought. She needs your love and support and you have to be strong for her. There are many things that can cause chest pain. Life and death are hand in hand. You will never have one without the other. She is probably scared and needs a familiar face with her. Put your fears aside and go to her show her your love and support. She is the most important thing. Be there for her, good luck.

Joan states that several years ago she had similar pain in chest and needed shunts. She can t remember whether the pain was intesified on inspiration, but that pain was more severe. Her blood pressure is 126/ 76 and she does not appear acutely ill though she is fatigued She does get anxious whenever she notices any new symptoms. However when i was just visiting her she was able to converse and refused to let me take her to urgent or emergency care.

Hi. My mother had a bp of about 182/126 last night, pulse was regular, refused to get emergency treatment but did make a dr. appointment. I had no other choice but to give her 5mg valium to lower it until I can her her to the dr s office and that brought it down to about 160/96. the next morning when valium wore off the b/p is back to around 160/102, told her to cut out the salt and take it easy until we can get her to the dr in 1 day. Before the valium, She complained about severe dizziness yesterday, no shortness of breath, chest pains, etc.I am monitoring the bp every 2 hours. Anything else that you could suggest until I get her to the dr tommorow would be greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays.

I m having inner vein pain on each arm, it s been reoccurring pain on and off for years. Four months ago I had severe chest pain, middle left, and since middle right, stabbing pain that is difficult not to shout out in agony- and I definitely have a high pain tolerance. Went to the ER the day AFTER I was up all night in pain, the freq upped to a break every few seconds and grabbing my chest and crying all night- last week same exact thing but in my right leg, after 7 hours of computer work, both hosp visits did their checks- no dvt and nothing in my lungs. I am overweight. I can t think of anything I could have- embarassing history- grandparents were cousins and married each other..genetic defect? mother has acute anemia and something else i can t pronounce that makes her reject blood transfusions and gr-grandfather had hemophelia. Just found out my med history when i found my biological family last yr. plz help!

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I used to be a body builder and took some steroids. I have had 2 heart attacks and a quadruple bypass, and still get very out of breath. I am overweight now with not being able to exercise! but the main problem is I think i do not produce enough testosterone, and to much estrogen as my man boobs are really large in comparison with my body. I am on lots of heart tablets, and type 2 diabetic also. Can you help?

I live in a cigarette smoking building--I am very allergic to it or sensitive--my heart jumps in my chest at times, then beats up to 120 beats a minute. I'm trying to move, but it's very expensive and I dont have a job. My grandfather died of a heart attack at 78-he was a chain smoker, so not a lot of heart disease on my mom's side. I didnt know my fathers side of the family. Actually my uncle died of a massasive heart attack at 48--Im 47--that was on my mom's side.
