Re: weird situation
Hi, yes I would have it checked out. From my own experience, which was much like yours, some chest pain at times when sitting or sometimes when walking, but nothing alarming. This kept up for about 3 weeks and I finally went to a heart Dr. Due to my family history and what I described to him, he scheduled a heart cath and found the left artery 99% blocked and another 70% and one more with mild blockage. He put 3 stents in the one that was 99% blocked, there was no damage to my heart. Not to scare you, but if I were you a check up would be good.
