| | Re: sudden, sharp chest pains on left side
It's not a good thing, but I'm relieved to know that others are having the same experience. My pains are also sporadic, and I can't link them to any dietary intake or activity. Like everyone else, I don't believe the pains are related to gas, anxiety, panic issues, or acid reflux. I've never suffered from any of them. Also, I exercise regularly, and never experience the pains during my workouts. I'm usually at rest and calm when they strike. I've also had an EKG. The doctor and nurse decided against shooting the dye in me to watch it travel, because I did well on the stress test on the treadmill. Additionally, I didn't have any pain during the test. If anyone gets a medical diagnosis, please share, because the pains (though brief) are definitely debilitating.
