Re: sever chest pain/costo?
Just want to say a little about women and heart attack pain. We know that women don't usually have the exact kind of pain that men do with a heart attack, but a lot of people don't know what the pain does sometimes a act like.
Quite a few years ago my Mama started having a pain kinda under & to the side of her right breast, it'd come & go, kinda like a cramp. Eventually Daddy told her to try his nitro, if it helped it might her heart, so, she tried it and it helped some, a few months later her pain was so bad that she just cried-my Mama crying from body pain is very rare- she went to the e.r. and thankfully they admitted her. For a few days they just watched her, they had a heart moniter on her, the pain would stay away for almost exactly an hour after they'd bring her nitro. Nothing showed heart trouble at all. I will forever be thankful for that heart dr. He said he'd go ahead & do the artreogram, just in case, but he didn't really think he'd find any problem. Her main right artery was 95% blocked They said they didn't know why she hadn't already had a heart attack. A miracle.
I told my dr. about and he said the pain I described sounded fairly common but alot of drs. aren't as aware of it as some.
There was more than just that under the breast pain, shoulder blade pain, some weird feeling up right side of her neck and her gums felt like they were tightening.
Anyway, I like to let others know about this, just in case.
