Anybody ever had Chest Pain near your Heart?

Guys, my chest has been hurting now for about 6 hours and it won't go away. I've tried to sleep it off in the past 4 hours, but it won't go away. It's like this really sharp pain in my chest, right over my heart, and sometimes it hurts bad. It hurst badly when I take in deep breaths and just winces from time to time on its own. Does anybody know what might be wrong with me, I'm kind of scared?

never had anything like that, but by the feel of it you should be able to determine whether it feels serious. If you have slightest suspicion that it could cardiovascular, rather than muscular, call your doctor immedaitely.

Age is unimportant in this

If it's pain, seek help

It could be serious, but mostly it's bad indigestion, or stomach acid rising..............and it does bloody feel like a heart attack

I have. I suggest you see a doctor if it gets more serious. But try eating something light like a piece of fruit (it could be that you ate a lot before), or drink something like tea or coffee, or try and be a little active like take a walk. It could be heartburn.

Don't you get kinda paralysed if you get a heart attack. It can't be. Or at least it can't be going on for 6 hours.

I think age is very important. If VeNuS#1LoVa is less than 50 it's not likely a heart attack.

Still I agree with the second bit - if you're worried, take a painkiller and seek medical advice ASAP.

Yeah, i've had a very minor one and that hurt enough, though it built up for about 12 hours, so it's best to get help now

I had that, had the EKG and all done on me, as well as the heart monitor. It was something called "Pluracy" (spelling?) all it was, was a build up of fluid in my lungs. From what I understand I still have it to this day, and it was just infected and acted up at that time. But I know people that have died from it, and I got it around 14 years old, so sometimes I worry now that I'm 24 about how filled up with fluid my lungs might be.

Go to a doctor anyway, and find out what's wrong. I hope you get well!

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Well, my minor heart attack was when i was 27, which i still am for another few days, but was in September last year. I've also known a chap have one at 18, but he was obese

My understanding is that that's exactly how it goes. You are not paralised at all. The first symptoms are normally very vague. What happens is that a blood supply is cut fomr the heart muscle, the muscle is still working but it starts to die, then at some point - normally few hours at least - Bang! - and it is dead enough to no longer be able to pricess all blood flow and at that point it is irreversible.

It can happen at any age.

In fact, everyone should have some heart medicine at home. Nitroglicerine is the simplest one..

You're very unfortunate to have had such bad luck. That kind of thing is extremely rare. Good that it was only minor .

Still if the pain is worse on taking deep breaths it's more likely to be lung related in origin - but all this internet diagnosis is probably more worrying than reassuring for VeNuS#1LoVa so I'm going to shut up now .

If you're worried about the pain, seek medical advice VeNuS#1LoVa.
