Re: Angina...??? Please respond!
A couple thoughts:
FIRST TAKE 2 adult ASPIRIN and a magnesium supplement if you have any...up to 500 mg.
Cardiac pain doesn't usually respond to breathing; is it worse on a deep breath?
An antibiotic could seriously mess up your digestion and result in a wicked case of heartburn...that will relieve with a large helping of chewed Tums, or drunk Maalox.
Angina won't kill but a heart attack will. If you have any doubt and you have decent insurance coverage you could drive to the E/R...maybe call your insurance company or your doctor first, lest you get stung with a HUGE bill for "unnecessary treatment." Sad, but this is the real world and the insurance companies rule medical care...at least in the United States. The E/R is the safest route but many of us would be flat broke if we went to the E/R for every chest pain...and the corpses of automobile accidents and shootings would litter the hospital hallways.
My GUESS though, and I stress the word GUESS, is that it is heartburn. If the Tums cures it, you;ve got your confirmation....if you need to chew 6 of them, chew 6 (one at a time slowly over 15 minutes!)
