  • Go to the Emergency Room or your doctor about the chest pains!

    You can vent/complain to us any time, we all need to sometimes.

    Take care of yourself so you will be able to take care of those beautiful children.

  • Carolina0710, it's Fancy1959 and I would like to officially welcome you to the awesome chat room. You have found a safe place to come in voice concerns, that question, or simply speak to someone who truly understands what you are going through. This chat room is full of some of the kindest, most caring, and compassionate people I have ever met.

    Have you had a stress test done to test your heart due to your chest pains? Remember you are the best advocate for your health and if you have to stand up and scream at the top of your lungs to have a stress test done so be it. Do it. You have precious little ones depending on you and you have to take care of yourself and follow your instincts.

    Please do not allow any doctor to treat you like another number. When that happens you stop becoming an individual and the care level goes down to mediocre care that fits the standard patient in the practice. No really good doctor would ever treat you like a number. Get a second opinion to check on your overall health. Again if you're not comfortable doing this for yourself do it for your children. Please keep us informed and let us know how it goes with you and yours. We are glad you are joined our extended family. Please take care until we speak again and remember that together we are stronger!

  • Welcome, Carolina0710, you have a beautiful family.

    As Morllyn said, you need to be seen asap. We tend to lump all of our aches and pains in with our MS, but everything isn't MS related. Chest pains shouldn't be ignored.

    We look forward to getting to know you better...and I pray that you'll have good news to share with us after seeing your doctor or ER. 💕

  • Carolina0710, I'm so glad you found us after dealing with MS for so long. You're beautiful children need their incredible mom, so I pray you will take care of that chest pain.

    Please do let us know how you are doing and what you find about the chest pain. We care about one another here.

  • I agree with the other replies and your kids are adorable. Take charge of your health an keep us informed

  • What a lovely photograph. Even the dog is smiling. Chest pains. Well you should be at your ER and have it checked out. As everyone on here as said, so please get checked out then come back and let us all know what it is. Praying all is ok, blessings Jimeka 🦋 🌈 🙏
