A fortnight ago I awoke with severe pains in my chest which did not ease. After vomiting I called 111 who rang for an ambulance to take me to A&E. I was admitted to hospital where extensive tests revealed I was anaemic and had low potassium levels.
On Thursday early evening the same thing happened although it wasn't as severe so I rode it out and after a couple of hours the pain subsided.
I had a pre arranged appointment with my GP yesterday and mentioned this to her and the next thing I know I'm on my way to A&E again.
Blood tests chest Xray and ECG revealed that the heart is ok and that iron and potassium levels are acceptable.
I am not convinced that these pains are heart related and wondered whether it could be just indigestion.
Has anybody else had similar experience. My diet is good. I eat very little in the way of processed food and have my 5 a day. I can't drink fizzy drinks as so many have aspartame or caffeine in them which play havoc with my heart rate!. Before the first episode I had eaten an M&S cheese pasty which I have to say was vile and I left half of it but the second episode occurred at least 6 hours after eating a small salad at lunch.
