: I am a woman in her 30's that just got back from the ER this morning. At 10:00 last night, I had a very sharp stabbing pain that was strong! I have never had a chest pain before, but I've had reflux pressure and pain before (esophagus), but this pain wasn't like that at all.
: At the ER, they did a ecg which was abnormal/ The doc said that my waves were upside down instead of rightside up??
: Then they did the blood test for tirosmine(sp) That shows whether you've had a heart attack and muscle damage.. It was negative.
: What do you all make of this?
: I only weigh 126
: Too much Coffee!! (I am a coffee hog and could this have something to do with the pains?_
Did they refer you to a cardiologist for the abnormal EKG? That sounds strange - I'd definitely follow-up with one to find out what that means. Caffiene is known to cause problems like rapid pulse and skipping, but sharp pain? I haven't heard of that. Smoking however can cause pain because it restricts the arteries. In any case, go have it checked out. I hope all goes well for you - good luck.
