Re: strange pain

It very well could be. You need to get it checked out right away!

Re: strange pain

sounds like you have angina. Does it hurt when you are not excercising? or at rest? That info would help. I could probably help you with some info if you give me some more info. Thanks

Re: strange pain

"Left leg" is the oddball in that scenario. Did you have a fall recently?

Re: strange pain

Does it sound heart-related? Yes, but it also sounds stomach-related, muscle-related, or pretty much anything-in-that-area-related.

There are an endless amount of causes for chest pain, and you won't know how serious or benign yours is unless you get it check out by a physician.

Re: strange pain

Lenin the left leg thing may actually be a possibility of a problem with the heart. After I had my stent and bypass I had coronary artery spasms that would cause me to have a rhythmic pain that would start on the left side of my chest and go down my left arm and left leg. It would keep spasming in a rhythmic pattern. I have questioned other people to see if they've had left leg pain along with angina and I've only heard of a few people.

Re: strange pain

NineLives,

Excuse the apparent simplicity of this question, but they didn't harvest the blood vessels they needed for your bypass from your left leg did they.
(Remember, I apologized before asking that silly question.)

Re: strange pain

No not a silly question and no need for an apology! They actually used the mammary artery only because I had a single bypass so I can't attribute the pain to a leg incision.
And I do understand why you questioned me about that because there is nothing that I've ever read in any literature about left leg pain being heart related. I'm speaking strictly from experience. I no longer have that pain because I'm no longer have coronary artery spasms.
