ive been thinking about writing this for a little while. For a couple of years now ive been getting funny feelings in my chest. ive had 2 exercise ECGs (the last one I had was 5 months ago), BP check of my wrists and ankles and echocardiogram however the tests showed nothing at all - both ECGs were fine and the echocardiogram I had was also fine. Ive never suffered from high BP (its always around 118/70) or high cholesterol (its always been around 4) if that's relevant. the funny feeling is very mild pain, sometimes it feels mildly sore to touch my chest, sometimes its the left hand side of my chest that gets pain. When im having pain I have had aspirin and its not made any difference to the pain. the pain comes on even when im sitting at rest as well.
Lately though ive been getting mild pain in the middle of my chest and sometimes it has radiated up to the left hand side of my neck/mouth and also feels like its spreading across to my shoulder kind of along the collar bone. Ive been back to the GP 6 or 7 times (this includes seeing a different GP for a second opinion) about this latest pain but they just keep saying they don't believe its related to my heart and that I had a test 5 months ago and all was absolutely fine then and that any heart or artery issues wouldn't come on that quickly. Why then do I keep getting pain in my chest, neck and around my mouth. When the pain comes on I also get some tingling in my left hand but again that's been there for 2 years or so.
Im concerned it is my heart. My family has a history of heart issues - quite a lot of them have passed away in their mid 50s because of heart issues and whilst im not in my mid 50s im not far away from it.
Sorry this feels like im rambling, just trying to get all the information out which I think is relevant.
