Heart info please
Hi there, I am new to this forum and just wanted to ask your opinion on the following.
A couple of times the past few weeks I have had severe heart pain issues which span a good couple of hours. It starts as pressure in the middle of my chest and pain shoots up my neck/face and down my left arm. I assumed it could be heartburn but after taking everything I could for it, it still didn't help. I had my last episode of this on Tuesday and there is still a dull pain there now. My doctor as suggested I do a 24 hr ecg but I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced the same and its just a bad case of heartburn or should I be more concerned?.
Any help would be grately appreciated :)

Hi Xanderc,

Welcome to the forum. I am not familiar with issues of the heart, but wanted to welcome you.

I hope you get some responses.

Hugs, Karen

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  Glad you've found our online community. It’s a great place to connect with others traveling the same road...you'll find much support, encouragement and advice from others who understand.

Chest pains do not always originate from the heart and there are many other structures in the chest wall as well as within the chest cavity or nearby, which can give rise to such a pain. However if you are experiencing chest pains and your Dr. suggested the 24 hour  monitoring than I would take his advice.

Do keep us posted on what you find out and know we care.
