Could it possibly be a anxiety or panic attack? Have you you had any increase in stress lately? When you say it feels like a heart attack it makes me wonder about panic attacks. I suffer with anxiety associated with my Crohns, and when I am stressed it really knocks me down unless I take my Xanax at the start of it. Just a thought!

I think I've had something similar, Looby. At least, I always know that if I start feeling jittery or hot all over or inexplicably angry or suddenly weak, that I'll be having pain or a horrible bm in the next few hours.

I think they body registers these things even before the pain starts.

I had attacks like that for years. I would feel jittery and then break into a cold sweat. I would then get very weak and have to sit down. In some cases I would get tunnel vision. I got the amubalance ride to the ER one time too and on each time I felt better after a while and EKGs showed no heart trouble..Yeah right. Fact was I had 95% blockage in the left main coronary artery. I had had it so long that the heart was trying to re route blood around the blockage. When the finally found it with a calcium score test. I had bypass surgery the next day. Dont mess around with this. Go see a heart doctor. My doctor thought all this was crohns related and if I had not insisted it was not I may not be here bothering you guys right now....
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I was still climbing telephone poles on hooks when I had these episodes. I guess I was in just about as good shape as I could be. Not quite as good as when I was in the army, but I did work hard. I'm not trying to worry you just pointing out that doctors tend to find one problem and then relate all other things to it. After my heart surgery my reg. doc said my symptoms were , a typical and if I had not insisted that this was not crohns he may not have done the right tests to find it. This was when I finally realized that it is up to us to get our point across. Doctors are limited by insurance co. that do not want un due tests. I dont intend to suffer because some insurance exect. feels he needs a new set of golf clubs and a Beemer...
