Hi everyone, I'm normally in Lupus forum, but I'm hoping someone may have suggestions or been through same as I have.
I know I have Mitrale valve prolapse (2 leaking hrt valves).  I've been getting more pain almost weekly now. This week for example I had a headache on my left side so I layed down, then all of a sudden I felt real nauseated, I felt so sick to my stomach, it lasted about 3 min or so, left side had jolts of pain all day in my heart area. 
I dread going to the ER, last year I went for chest pain, EKG was norm. I had an EKG in OCT 06', it was norm. I wasn't having any pain when it was done. I have noticed that on both my breast now I have sharp pain too, feels like jolts of pain come and go daily.  I told my HB about this and he said next time let him know.
Has anyone had similiar stories?. I feel like time wasted in hospital after waiting to be seen. 
Sorry, I just don't know what to do.

Hi dreamgirl, I have pain on left side, so I always thought it was my heart, but lately my pain is on my left side of head, lft arm,neck area.
On one of my hrt DR visit, he said he noticed my left side of my mouth a little droopy, and asked me if I had noiced it b4. I said no. On that day I left wrk early due to pain in my chest and EKG came bk normal.
I can remeber on my way to see him I felt lost and disoriented for a few seconds, could not remember where I needed to go. I did tell him and he said nothing. I don't know what else to do, who I should see.
Maybe its not my heart, what do I do next?
May you have a good day

You could be having TIAs or it could be first signs of a stroke. If you ever notice any facial drooping, please go to ER ASAP. There is only a short window of opportunity for MDs to control stroke. Good luck! My husband has had several TIAs, but they never affected his facial muscles.
