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.
I take medicine for anxiety 3 times a day which helps keep under control. Now that I know I'm not having a heart attack my anxiety is much better. My heart doctor told me if I keep having the pain, he would prescribe nitro tablets which would help. But now that I know I have HP, my anxiety is much better. I have not had any pain since may. That's not to say I want, but anxiety makes the pain worse. The others have give some good advice. Try all of them. Hugs and prayers for you.
ABSOLUTELY have chest pain..it just comes and goes, can't pinpoint a reason or specific movement that causes it.
