    I Don't Like to Talk About It

    I'd rather ignore it but it's there. Not intense pain, by any means, more a sense of constriction. I've got awful family history with heart stuff: dad dead at 51, grandpa dead at 55. I feel young. I don't want to deal with this, but I think it's trying to get my attention.

    It started hurting a lot

    and my mind has been overflowing with random thoughts that make my chest hurt even more. I think it's a side effect of my new medication.:(

    right now, for some odd reason im starting to get bad chest pain, not as bad as it has been in the past, but still it kinda hurts, enough to bring it to my attention. I might take a nap, that usually gets rid of it. I did a lot of running around today, so it could just be that...

    I Have Back and Chest Pains and I Have No Idea What Causes Them.

    Ever since I hit puberty I have always had sharp back and chest pains that last about 2-3 seconds and then quickly go away. They hurt horribly, so much in fact that if I am standing up when they hit, I end up doubled over holding my breath because it hurts to take a regular...

    I Think I May Have Experienced Some Kind Of Cardiac Event Today..

    I have no reason to think that I should be in a state of good health. I knowingly abuse my body every day. This afternoon while waiting for the bus to go to work, I was having a cigarette and suddenly experienced difficulty breathing and a building pain in my chest. Not to the...

    Chest Pain

    I can't sleep on my left side because I wake up in the middle of the night with a pain in my chest, so I just started sleeping on the right side or my back, problem solved - I also get chest pain occasionally when I'm not sleeping, but that's occasionally as I said.

    Few Days Now

    My BP went up last night to about 159/137. I knew something was wrong, I felt horrid and dizzy and just fell to the kitchen floor in tears. I ran out of one of my meds and haven't cared too much about any of the others so it's my own fault. I still feel like crap but don't have...

    I'm pretty sure it's related to anxiety, but it just sucks real bad. :(

    Either I slept wrong last night

    or that really big sneeze I had earlier today really did a number on me because the right side of my chest seems to be bruised on the inside. Lol

    Happened For Years, No Idea Why.

    I was about 14 when all my heart issues reared their ugly heads. I started getting palpitations, chest pains and an unnaturally fast heart rate. Many times I will just be sitting down or walking around the house and I'll get a searing pain where my heart is. I have to stop. Don...
