    Is chest pain after straining ALWAYS angina?

    I'm a 46 years old male.

    -Run 10 km a day 5 times a week
    -120/75 pulse
    - 99% oxygen
    - No smoke
    - Drink Very little
    - Sligthly overweight at 82 kilos and 169 cm
    - Have pretty bad anxiety
    - Have intermittent GERD

    I have been having chest pains and weird sensations in my chest for years. Always thought it was anxiety. But now I read stuff on the internet, and it seems like stable angina...

    This week I started having symptoms after very little effort, I'm talking one flight of stairs, walking in a shopping mall, even pacing in my apartment back and forth a few meters can trigger it.

    The feeling lasts about 1-3 seconds, like "woosh woosh" feeling. It sits right in solar plexus and upper chest in the middle.

    Now what confuses me...is that running 45 minutes or swimming 20 minutes doesn't create symptoms. (well sometimes running may...but might only be anxiety, it sure doesn't stop me, all I have to do is think about something and the pain goes away).

    These only occur with very short exercise.

    Really worried about my future here....I don't have the money to get stents and surgery...

    Thanks

    Maybe that's a good thing because stents and surgery will not get to the root cause of the problem. These procedures will only buy you some time. I have known people who have gone through this and it often ends up being one medical procedure after another. And that's because they refuse to make any significant changes in their lifestyle.

    If you're doing a lot of running and are still overweight, that suggests there's a lot of room for improvement in your diet; and diet is usually the all important consideration.
