I posted a few weeks ago about chest pain. Well, I still have it and now there is burning and pain in my chest and my left arm and left shoulder blade hurt. Sometimes it feels like it's muscular and other times it's sharp pains with burning and sometime I feel like I am hyperventilating and I keep taking deep breaths. I also feel very tired and get dizzy and nauseous at times. Just yesterday I noticed pain on the left side of my chest when I'm swallowing solid food.
I am a 33 year old female, no serious health problems, normal weight, I do not smoke or drink or eat red meat. I am out of shape however. I really need to get my muscle tone back. I just started doing some yoga yesterday. I do not like to exercise and I have not worked for a couple of months since I moved across country so I have not had much physical activity other than cleaning the house. The move was extremely stressful and a HUGE mistake. I have been under much stress and my dog just died a couple of weeks ago. So I have been stressed and upset. I just feel plain yucky and I do not feel well enough to do much of anything.
So of course I'm confused as to whether my pains are from stress and depression or something else. My parents are so worried about me and they are begging me to go to the ER. I do not have health insurance but I know they will accept me at the emergency room but of course I will get stuck with a big bill which will not be good for my stress.
My b/f on the other hand thinks I just need to exercise and stop stressing out.
I just would like an unbiased opinion based purely on what I am saying. I am debating on whether or not I should go to the ER tomorrow. Thanks for listening.
