Ongoing Chest Pain
A week ago, I woke up at night from chest pain. It was pretty intense and I thought it was heartburn. I took Tums, which always help, but they didn’t help. The next day I went to my doctor. She did an EKG and it was normal. She prescribed Omeprazole for GERD. Even after days of taking it, I do not feel better. My chest pain is constant. It’s minor but it moves around. For example, it is in the middle of my chest right now but has been on the left side and then the right side today as well. My cholesterol is normal, I am a 28 year old female, I am not overweight, and there is not history of heart issues in my family.
Sometimes I feel like my heart is fluttering. I’ve also been very tired and a bit dizzy. I am not sure if part of the cause of my symptoms is anxiety, but anxiety attacks don’t typically last for days on end. I have a hard time focusing on anything lately because of my symptoms. I feel shaky too.
Please help me. I am not sure what is going on and I feel like my doctor doesn’t think it’s a big deal.
