Boy do I have a story for you...I was on the city bus (my roommate as the busdriver too). All of a sudden I started having severe stabbing chest pain. A few weeks before, I was told about
my heart murmer and was told seek medical attention if I notice anything worse. I was like what the heck...I'm 27 and having chest pain. It felt like a stabbing pain then an explosion like a bomb going off in my body at my heart. My roommate freaked out (go figure freak out the busdriver) and she parked her bus. Refused to move it. Even though we were less than a mile from the hospital lol...and she called 911. So I go by ambulance...since this pain was coming in waves, it was hard to believe at first, til paramedics saw me go in a wave of it. It was so painful I would stop talking and grip something so tight knuckles turned white. We go to the hospital by ambulance. Guess what I had...severe acid reflux. How embarrassing to take an ambulance!! But how was I to know? I just had then been told about
my heart murmer a few weeks prior..
That was Last Year, and I'm now 28
