I am ill for 5 months now and have abxs for 4 months. I have had some stabbing pains in the heart before but they usually go over quite quickly. But today I have a lot of them, long lasting episodes - 15 min. Stabbing is pulsating if you know what I mean.
My heart has been checked, USG, Holter Monitor, mid September, everything was fine. I wish I could just ignore those pains, but they make me nervous. In the same time I hate to go to ER. :(( They do not have answers there really... just to exclude heart attack really.
I took some magnesium and valeriana now... it calmed down a bit... but I am getting worried.
What is your experience with heart pain?
Did the e.r. refer you to a pulmonary specialist to have you do a stress test? If anything was going to happen, putting you on a treadmill would indicate something.
If they didn't and you have insurance, I would contact one and see if he thinks you should have more testing.
The e.r. can send blood samples to a lab to check for certain enzymes (I believe) that indicate heart attack. Did they do that too? The thing is, there are other physical reasons why you would get that kind of pain in your heart without being a heart attack, but still be a heart issue. I think a stress test might bring it on, and they can 'see' what's happening when the pain starts.
My personal experience years ago when I had this kind of pain with Lyme, was not so much my heart turning out to be bad, though that's where the pain felt like it was coming from. I did the stress test. I had high blood pressure, and the the dr. there started me on medication for that.
