Rob, my husband died at 51 years old. He was having chest pains, for two years, and the doctors ran a few minor tests and said it was stress. They were wrong.
So, when I started having problems I saw my doctor right away. He did an electrocardiogram, an echocardiogram, an ultrasound of my heart, and had me wear a monitor for 24 hours. My heart was fine so now I don't worry when I have those symptoms. It does give you peace of mind to be checked out, instead of guessing.
