Chest Pain - March 20th 2012, 11:57 PM

Hey,
I'm slightly concerned. About two hours ago I felt a sharp pain in my chest which took my breath away for a few seconds. After the sharp feeling went, I've been left with a really dull crushing pain that doesn't seem to be leaving. Because its right where my heart is, I'm freaking out (probably over nothing), but I'm not able to get checked out until the morning. My pulse is normal, maybe a little slower than usual. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!

Hey there, the best suggestion I can give you is to consult a doctor. If you can't get it checked out, it would be best to ring up the local ER or local medical professional's office to at least give some quick symptoms to see if it is anything that can be put off for a while longer or it is in fact an emergency. Stay safe!

You could definitely call an ER or doctor and describe your symptoms. If you can't afford to go, then let them know and be very firm with them that you will not be coming in, but you want to know if this is a real concern or perhaps something small.

It sounds like it could be a pulled muscle in your chest, to me. But I'm no doctor so don't take my word for it.

Hopefully it goes away.

You should consult a doctor immediately.

Thankyou.
I visited the doctor who listened to my heart and told me I have a heart murmur.
He was unsure on why I am getting chest pain so I've been referred to a cardiologist, who is going to give me an EKG and a few other tests. I'm very nervous about this, has anyone had heart tests before?

I have gotten an EKG before. It was no problem at all, and incredibly effective at finding defects. You'll be under the supervision of a trained medical professional, so I'd say all is well.

I've had an EKG. They hook some suction cup-like things to you. And then watch the machine. Very simple
