Heart or Muscle Tear

Last Wednesday I had a colonoscopy which was fine. The day after I had to pick up, load and unload 20 boxes of tile. On Friday I noticed a dull pain or fullness feeling in between my chest which I've had ever since. I feel it more when I sit but can still do my 45 minutes of daily cardio with ease. My resting pulse rate is 64 but when I sit it feels like I can feel my heart beating and sometimes when sitting I have to take an extra breath. I'm thinking I may have torn or fractured something. Any thoughts?

Re: Heart or Muscle Tear

Hi I suppose a visit to the ER could help a person be sure. Once gone a person can't come back. All that work done after a colonoscopy, which has problably taken electrolytes out of a person because of the huge cleanout that has preceded the procedure, may not have helped any.

Re: Heart or Muscle Tear

Yup, here's my thoughts GO TO THE DR ! Anytine something doesn't feel right best bet is get it checked out, and go to a Dr not a web site ! No one here can tell you anything other than guess. Always error on the safe side, see a pro...

It was the blood pressure! Funny when you eat right, work out and all that. Darn genes!

Re: Heart or Muscle Tear

Hi I have seen other posters who I feel sustain damage to the heart valve by lifting weights at the gymn. Those little tiny valves were not meant for that. However walking in a nice place in nature may be appropriate. If it is possible to reduce work weight by separating contents of containers or moving smaller boxes or by using dollies(?spelling) or special lifting equipment instead of the human body I would by all means do so.
