I have chest pain, mostly on the left side, and shortness of breath with slight movement. Sometimes it goes away in a few minutes but it usually stays several hours. Sometimes I wake up with it. Does anyone else experience this? If so, how do you manage it?
Every single day. I use nitro patches and Ranexa and Tramadol, but it's still there every day, especially with any kind of exercise or bending down. Some days it's unbearable and I go to ER. And they find: Absolutely nothing. :( My whole family thinks I'm nuts. It's so depressing and frustrating.
I use to have pain in my chest area that hurt enough to feel it was a heart attack. I had a doctor checked my vitamin D it was too low. When that level was brought up the pain was gone. I have a small sign of pain I know my D is low.
ABSOLUTELY have chest pain..it just comes and goes, can't pinpoint a reason or specific movement that causes it.
I only have chest pain once in a while and nothing major, I do have NitroStat to take if needed and to report it to doctor.
My research tells me this can happen. My Heart catheterization in July said my vessels are clear, but I have some tightness on occasion. I wear oxygen, so I just make sure it is on. I keep my room very cool. So, when I get the feeling I stop what I'm doing and just chill. We often have to rest. It takes a while to adjust our activities.
