I have been having chest pains and weird sensations in my chest for years. Always thought it was anxiety. But now I read stuff on the internet, and it seems like stable angina...
This week I started having symptoms after very little effort, I'm talking one flight of stairs, walking in a shopping mall, even pacing in my appartment back and forth a few metters can trigger it.
The feeling lasts about 1-3 seconds, like "woosh woosh" feeling. It sits right in solar plexus and upper chest in the middle.
Now what confuses me...is that running 45 minutes or swimming 20 minutes doesn't create symptoms. (well sometimes running may...but might only be anxiety, it sure doesn't stop me, all I have to do is think about something and the pain goes away).
These only occur with very short exercise.
I'm panicking here, I'm a Canadian living in Thailand, no family here and very few friends...
I looked online and stents are like $20 000 EACH...even in Thailand....there is no way I can afford that...
I am screwed?
Really worried about my future here.
