Chest Pain

Hi there, I'm new to this site, so hi to everyone.

Hope you can help.

Last night I was woken up about 6 times with pain in the centre of my chest and it would sometimes radiate up by my jaw and my bottom teeth would ache. The episodes would last about 5 minutes. I was very hot as well. Do you think it could be heart related and if I went to A & E, they would be able to detect something even though the pain gas gone now?

Thanks in advance

Hi Janopyne,

Yes you should go to A and E and describe the pain as you have here. There is a substance in blood tests which actually can't be seen until 6 hours after a heart incident so it's well worth while going now.

The symptoms you describe are very likely to be heart related and you should go to A and E now. If it happens again during the night don't be worried about calling an ambulance


PS to last post- noticed you say 6 times- definitely go to A and E asap


Yes I'd get off to A&E straight away. There are 6 symptoms of a heart attack:

•Chest pain or discomfort. Chest pain is the most common heart attack symptom, usually in the middle of the chest

•Pain in your arm(s), back, neck, or jaw

•Stomach pain

•Shortness of breath, nausea, or lightheadedness



You had at least 3 of these symptoms. Pack a bag, order a taxi and go now!

Good advice from the other posters - A&E definitely. My GP advised me to call an ambulance if I experienced the symptoms which you describe. Best wishes.


Many thanks everyone, really appreciated. Will let you know how I get on x


Yes, I agree with everyone else you really must go to A+E.


I do hope you get the attention and treatment you need at A and E. X


I used to get that but if I drank a glass of water it went, so assume it was digestive. But best to be sure though and get checked out.



The symptoms described are likely to be heart related- including the jaw pain


It sounds as though you might have Angina.

I have had Angina for several years. Same symptoms as you.

Good luck.

Don't over worry. Indigestion can cause similar symptoms but you should get checked out.


Did you go to A+E. How did you get on?
