| | Sharp pains and pounding heart
I am 44 and quite fit, non-smoker.
I have had a dull ache behind my sternum for over 3 years, which my doctors put down to skeletal problems.
Took the Ibroprofen with limited results.
Recently however, I have started to have sharp chest pains centrally and right side of neck. I have also started to have a weird pounding chest sensation, not just sometimes but 24/7.
All this is when at rest, on exertion still the same, sharp pains every so ofter, but constant heart pounding
Had an ecg which was clear, chest xray okay, doctor thinks I am exaggerating i'm sure, as he barely noted my pains and pounding.
I don't quite know what to do next as I feel quite helpless at the moment.
I would welcome any advice from anyone with similar experiences
