I went to the ER and chest pain is the keyword that gets you in I never knew that....
I have some syndrome that when I get nerveous my blood pressure went up to 175 :S insane?
and heart beat 115
They put me on the monitor and they gave me Ativan and let me lay there for 3 hours then did blood tests
one of the tests was a protein or something thats inside your heart
they checked for any demage and they said its not the heart as the results came out to be clean and chest exray was ok too no problems.
Only thing is my mom has this thing that is called "Nevrolgia" its in russian I dont know how to say this in english but its the nerves inbetween the ribs that start hurting etc....

Heart pain would come on for a few minutes following exercise/stress etc, not for a second or two. Also it is usually a squeezing feeling rather than a sharp pain.
You should discuss your worries further with your doctor and I'm sure be reassured.
I would not have a test such as cardiac catheterisation with those symptoms! It has definite risks, although uncommon, and should only be done if there is strong suspicion of heart problems. One has to always balance risks and benefits.
Mtlguy, I would relax and carry on with your great exercise. Good luck.
