Hi all... I have a few questions to ask regarding a possible heart attack.
I've been having little pains in my chest to the left hand side, around 3-4 inches from the center, and in my left arm right around where one would get a shot. They're never constant and they only last for a few seconds, they don't both happen at the same time either. Sometimes one is cramping and the other one isn't it. Here's the deal though. I've been to the emergency room twice within the past month or so and I've had an ECG and Blood Work done both times, plus the doctor listened to me with the stethoscope. The doctor told me that everything was perfect with my blood, but he said he saw a slight abnormality on the ECG, but since it matched my older ones he chalked it up to that being my normal rythm. Is this possible? He said he really doubts it's my heart, but I don't know. These little pains have me scared.
How likely is it that I could still be having a heart attack and the doc just doesn't know what he's doing/saying?
I don't ever have any other symptoms of a heart attack other than what I described. No shortness of breath, no dizziness, no nausea.. etc..
I should also mention that I don't have to be doing anything extremely physical for these pains to happen. They happen sometimes when I'm just sitting here typing as I am now.
Any opinions would be greaty appreciated.. Thanks..
