Hello everyone. A while back I've been getting these weird feelings in my chest, and sometimes I would get this strong ache that would last a couple of seconds in my left arm. Sometimes my left leg would feel the same way. I never really connected these things, and I just assumed my weird feelings in the chest were because of the anxiety. Recently I caught a cold, 3 days ago I suddenly got a fever, went to the pharmacy and bought myself something they recommended for the cold. The next day, I went to the pool with my girlfriend, it was a horrible idea, the water was really cold, so we had to keep coming out and going back again, but I felt good. Suddenly, when I wanted us to go back again, I felt a short pain in my chest, where my heart is. I got a little scared, and told her to wait a little bit. We sat down next to the pool, I waited a little, then I checked my pulse, it was 117. My girlfriend told me not to worry, and said it's probably because of the heat. It was very very hot outside. After a couple of minutes, the weird feelings went away, I got back into the pool, and everything was fine for the rest of the day.
Next morning I woke up with a strong stabbing pain in my back, more to the left, where my heart is. So I decided to go immediatly to the doctor. I assumed I had something with my lungs. Pneumonia has the same symptom, a sharp ache, and fever, and caughing. Everything checked except the fact that I didn't caught almost at all. I told him about my weird feelings in my chest, but he didn't really considered what I was saying. I felt pretty weird about that. He listened to my lungs, asked me to breathe in and out as deeply as I can. He said I have bronchitis. He didn't give me antibiotics, he said we'll first try nurofen, 3 times a day and some caughing pills, in case I start caughing. I took my pill regularly, except the caughing pills, because I don't caught and I still get this weird feeling in my chest. It's like it hurts, but it doesn't, I can't really describe it. and it's not quite in the middle, it a little bit to the left, upper part. like a little bit above my left chest. And yesterday I felt pain in my left shoulder, and discomfort around that area as well. And today I am getting the feeling in the chest, and jaw pains. Short duration pain bursts in the left side of my lover jaw, but sometimes in the right side. I am really scared, I am afraid I having a heart attack. I supposed to meet with my doctor tomorrow morning, to see if I got better from the simple cold treatment or not. And I am going to tell him about these feelings I get and I'll ask him to send me to get my heart checked out.
My biggest fear is that I won't make it, and I'll die before I get a chance to go to the doctor and get my hear checked out. I don't know what to do. I almost cried. I'm getting really depressed.
