***what do you think???****

  1. Hi everyone-
    I just have a questioned and I do not know if I should be concerned about this or not......I am not asking for medical advice....just an opinion. Last night I was just watching TV and all of a sudden I had chest pain. (The last time this happened was about 4 months ago, but last night was the worst) My chest felt very heavy and it was hard to breathe. (last time i asked my Dr about it she thought it might be asthma) I tried the inhaler and noticed nothing, so I took my BP it was normal...about 122/78 and then I took my apical pulse. it was 98, usually it is around 66-70. I could just literally feel my heart beating extremely fast and hard. Then I was breathing so fast it was almost like I was hyperventilating....but I was also so scared. Any ideas of what this could possibly be??? or do you think it is important I should go to the Dr again?? Thanks! Oohh and this probably lasted for 15-30 mins

    hello, nikkik163,

    i know you are concerned about the chest pain. we at allnurses.com cannot give you medical advice. please see your healthcare provider and have this checked. call tomorrow and if this should return tonight, go to the er.

    good luck. i hope all is well with you.
