Does Anyone Else Have Chest Pain With Their PH?

Does Anyone Else Have Chest Pain With Their PH?

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.

I had an echo cardiogram recently and was told my heart was strong.
I get chest pain that is like muscle/bone pain and I put a nitroglycerin tab under my tongue and helps ease the spasm. The pain can make me cry!
