chest pain

Hi everyone, just thought I would ask does anyone get really bad tight chest pain with a deep throbbing when breathing in realy scary one night when I had to use four pillows and thought I would never get to sleep but when I woke it seemed to ahve disappeared and I was ik for the day and two days later it has come back does this sound like a flare up or should I be concerned as it is not shifting 5 days now. 14Penny

Anything to do with chest pain or breathing should be checked out with your GP just in case.

That must be scary!   St Thomas is a good hospital so hopefully they'll sort out the best thing to do and do it quickly!  Let us know how you get on.

Could it be like a panic attack?

If you've had it 5 days you really do need to see your GP. It could be due to a number of things but just leaving it really isn't as option so do please ring your Surgery for an appointment.

Hi just to agree with everyone else visit gp asap just to rule things out and put your mind at ease.

There are lots the doctors can help you with and don't forget to tell them that it comes and goes and what the pain is like,it will help them to diagnose quickly....hopefully.

Thanks, hopefully I am on the right road to recovery, just to say I should never have left it even a few days too long.

You're right. Chest pain is one of those things that needs checking quickly. But that's the trouble with living with chronic pain... You get used to things hurting, and it's sometimes hard to tell what's 'normal' and what's not. Glad you're getting better now.
