    to be honest it sounds more like my Prinzmetal angina pain, not saying you have my type or angina but, i would be more inclined not to hang around till friday... missus i dont think would let me either... it does sound more like an angina type pain and needs a better look than a gp will give...

      Sorry popeye I thoroughly agree with andrew,  if I were you I would be going to the ER and not waiting for the doctors.  I was going to write more but it is up to you.

      Popeye, i would only ask this... you are nearly financially at the same point and you are playing the hope game? being blunt do you check the road before crosing it...? i understand what you are saying but do you want time with wife and family or to leave them financially secure? yes we all take risks but some risks are not worth it... like driving a car with no brakes. Repeating a very sad story - an Athletics coach was coaching here a while ago, complained of feeling a bit unwell and chesty... no one thought anything of it after all us athletes (ex in my case now i guess) and coaches (still going just) always have something body wise to grumble about, 250 miles later he died on the motorway his wife had to steer the car off the road....  sorry but... i care about you...

      We all hate going  but if things get any  worse, I'd think about A&E Nigel  (might get a quick cardioversion that way). I had a terrible journey home from Italy a few years ago so make sure you are feeling better before you head off for Egypt.... and check  insurance to give you peace of mind.  Hope all goes well for you, take good care
