Chest pains

I've been having some problems since this past Tuesday. Every day I'm having pretty bad chest pains and also some pains in my upper back. I don't think its heart attack. I'm not sure if its heart related or not. I've took some aspirin and it doesnt seem to help. I've had acid reflux in the past so I have been taking some medicine for that, but the pain is still there. And Im not sure I would be having the pains in my back too if it was reflux. My dr is not able to see me until next week and I've been trying to stay out of the ER unless it was an absolute emergency. So Im just wondering if I should be worried that it is heart related.

Re: Chest pains

Hy Danielle! I read your post and I was wondering if you found out anything. I've been having chest pains for about 2 months now, and sometimes the pain does indeed radiate to the mid back. I just posted a message in the 'heart disorders' category, hoping I will maybe find some answers...

Let me know how you've been feeling!

I'm wondering if we are having the same kind of pain. This morning I woke up and after breathing in I got this sharp stabbing pain in the middle of my chest. It look my breath away and I thought it would stop but it has been happening all day. I have bad reflux and took Prevacid and gas pills but nothing is helping. I don't really have any other symptoms except this stabbing pain which is freaking me out because when it comes it goes into my upper back also. Of course I goggled it too which doesn't help. Hopefully it's better by tomorrow. You'll have to keep us posted!

Re: Chest pains

To those who posted here about chest pains, I hope you have seen a cardiologist. Those pains that you are having on a regular basis is a signal of some kind that there a trouble going on. Those pains needs to be checked into, not a emergency room unless you are having difficulty breathing as well. Get to a cardiologist and get some test run, get with your gp and get some tests run. Find out what is going on, don't just sit there and ignore the pain. Your body is telling you something is wrong in the body. Let us know what you find out. No matter if is a minor thing. Let us know something. Hungs for everyone here today.

Never give up.

Re: Chest pains

A good test to determine cause of chest pain is that heart pain is not dependent on body position or movement. Costochondritis (ligament and ribcage pain) IS.

So if you pain is made a lot worse when you lift up an arm or twist a certain way, it is muscle/ligament strain or sprain. Same if it hurts when you breath in very deeply. Though these pains can hurt like Hell they usually are self healing in a week or two and nothing to be scared about.

The pain of a heart attack is not relieved no matter how you sit stand or lie.

The pain of angina goes away if you sit still for 10 minutes.

Not diagnostic but tolerable rules of thumb.
