    Default Chest pain last few days on and off.

    Hi! I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced chest pain? It was quite a big pressure in the centre of my chest around lunchtime today (nothing exhausting) and late last night but since then it's totally disappeared. I have a bit of a cough and wheezy lungs but wasn't sure what to do. Like I said the pain has been gone now for over 12 hours so wasn't sure

    Of course I'm awake at 1.30am Dr Googling it!

    A call to Nurse on Call if it happens again would be your best bet if you think calling an ambulance wasn't necessary. I wouldn't take chest lightly.

    Are you sick with anything respiratory? Are you stressed? I could be anxiety related. But if you are sick it could be related to that.

    May be worth a visit to the dr.

    I would go and speak with your doctor. Things involving the heart should be checked asap even if it's only mild. I had similar pains early in the year, had blood work and put on a halter monitor for 24 hours. The monitor picked up palpitations but they were still in range. They've since eased off now after some dietary changes.

    Go to emergency. Chest pain shouldn't be ignored. I went recently for something similar. You will be seen straight away. As soon as someone mentions Chest pain we call St. John's at wrk and it happens almost daily. Better safe than sorry

    See a doctor but my guess would be asthma?

    What were your dietary changes if you don't mind me asking?

    Thank you all for your responses. I went up to emergence this morning as today is a public holiday.. the triage nurse wasn't the kindest but the doctor was amazing (and cute to boot!!)

    I developed a quickly spreading rash all over my legs, arms, trunk and neck last night and that was the last straw...

    As I had a slight cough that started around the same time as the heart problems and now with the developed rash he was confident it is a viral infection. I had an ECG which showed everything to be fine and as I don't have any alarm bells (don't smoke, don't drink etc) to point to heart problems I got the all clear..

    Thank you again for your time! I agree, heart problems should never be ignored and honestly these pains scared the hell out of me. Hopefully I can get some sleep tonight knowing all is ok

    Caffeine. I had a huge addiction at the time to Pepsi max! Certainly learnt my lesson!
