    anemia & chest pain

    How can I tell if the chest pain I'm getting from anemia is muscle pain or angina? I know you can get both from anemia. I have a lot of pain in my left arm, too (in the muscle and shoulder), and wonder again if it's a nerve from my back or angina.

    I recently did very well on a cardiac stress test, so my doctor is very sure it's not the heart. How can I be sure? And what can I do? I'm taking iron pills to treat the anemia. But I can't stand these sleepless nights with chest pains. Help.

    Unfortunately, you can not tell. If it bothers you at night, then go to the ER at night and let them put the EKG on you at night. There is a high percentage of people who have heart attacks at night or in the hours between midnight and 6 am. That is why the 3rd shift is referred to as the grave yard shift. It is nothing to guess about.
