This is my first visit to the heart forum! I have been a member of healing well since the first of the year when my Mom was disgnosed with ulcerative colitis. I found very valuable info here and I am so appreciative of this means of communicatiing.
Sorry for the long intro! I am 53 and for the past few weeks have been having mild chest pain (on and off). It does not go into my neck or arm, nor do I feel short of breath. It really just runs across my boobs (from left to right)! It would not surprise me if I have some heartburn/GERD issues or even anxiety. My doctor has referred me to a cardiologist and I will be having a stress test done on the 29th. My PCP gave me some heartburn meds but I am still having the chest pain on and off.
Can anyone relate or have any words of wisdom? I only have an uncle on each side of my family with any cardiac issues. No immediate relative does. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!
