Angina or worse

Posted by jadillow @jadillow, Mon, Jun 17 7:05am

Hello again all

All chest tests over last year have been good other than sinus bradycardia and hypertension. Last night I got one of my usual chest pains. Hurts on both side of sternum. Almost a straight line in upper chest to each side. Could this be angina or could it be possible inflammation. I just really don’t want an unmerited Er visits due to my anxiety. I can kind of recreate the pain when I squeeze the area.

@jadillow I know chest pain is an anxious , upsetting experience. I would go see another cardiologist and gastrologist ask them to do an endoscopy to see if it's anything with your stomach tell him your symptoms It's hard for you just to guess what it is Maybe they can relieve your mind

Thanks. I had an endo done last month. Nothing abnormal. Just small high hernia.

@jadillow If it's a hiatal hernia that's probably your answer to your chest pain ,talk to your Dr ask him about your symptoms see if that is what it is

Can that cause long lasting upper chest pain?

Thanks. Also at times it feels as if my heart is flip flopping. I checked it on my Apple Watch with the ECG feature and where it shows a normal Rythm, at the time this happens it’s almost like an extra beat. What is this called? Is that a fib or pac? My doctor hasn’t no concerns. Nor do cardiologist. And I’m getting way too many hospitals bills so I wanted some advice from you guys before I rack up the bills again. Thanks

Pretty sure they’re called PVCs. I have aortic stenosis in my bicuspid valve and sometimes I get these. They do echos twice a year to check the valve. As long as you are not having any symptoms of chest or arm pain or lightheadedness or shortness of breath they usually do no harm.
