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.

Once you got to the ER, did you have the pain checked out, even though it had passed by then? I'm concerned that you might have had a mild heart attack - you really need to talk with a dr about this, as soon as possible!!! These don't sound like symptoms you can wait around with.

See the doc!

I did go in and was seen ekg was normal and they sent me on my way had me make an appointment with my primary,he blew me off said that it wasn't a heart attack. I am waiting to get in to my Rheumy that appointment is next week. I am so worried I have enough health problems I don't want to add heart issues to the mix. It hasn't happened again. I do remember this happening once before but I put it off as being stressed since my husband was very ill and in a coma but that was 5 yrs ago.

Glad the EKG was normal and even more glad you are seeing your rheumy about this.

I had a similar situation, was having chest pains A LOT, had an EKG, it was a abnormal and a nuclear stress test which was normal. PCP blamed it on coming off Plaquenil or NSAIDS ( I can't remember which one caused this flare, I've had 3 of them due to med changes). Have you had any med changes?? Please let us know what your rheumy says. Take care and if it happens again do not hesitate to go back to that ER!
