Hi guys,

I have been haveing these strange symptoms and I am beginning to get worried and I am trying to decide if I need to get in to my doc. about a week ago I woke up to chest pain that went down my left arm and up into my jaw I took a couple of deep breaths and went back to sleep,later that day I was driving and it happened again but this time it lasted 25 mins or so. I called my husband and told him I though maybe I was having a heart attack and I was going to drive to urgent care by the time I got there it had stopped and I was fine,since then I thought Iwas having a really bad flare night when my shoulder,chest above my breast and my back felt as if they were on fire and someone was clawing the skin off,I couldn't lie down,sit back or be touched it lasted all night to the point of tears and this happend for a week straight then stopped as fast as it started,now I have heartburn after I eat or drink anything. I am on an anti inflammitory but I also take medication for gastritis so that should be helpful with the heartburn but it is not. I guess my question is,is there anyone else that may have had this happen before? Any ideas or thought will be most welcome.

When you have these types of symptoms, you should be checked out by your doctor.  When I had pain in my chest and heart palpatation, I called my doctor and he ran an ekg, echocardiogram, an ultrasound of my heart, and had me wear a monitor for 24 hours.  My heart was fine so now I know those symptoms were fibro and costochondritis.  I don't worry about them.  But, you don't really know what is going on so you will worry about it, too, which will make the fibro worse.  So, please get checked out.  Chest pain...especially when it goes down your arm and in your jaw....is nothing to guess about.  It's probably nothing but you do want to be sure.  Please let us know what you find out.

Never assume a new symptom is fibro. You need to get this checked out as soon as possible. If it's fibro & you get it checked out, all it cost was some time and money. If it's cardiac and you don't get it checked out, it could cost you your life.
