I'm a 56 year old slim and very fit female. I work out for around 40 minutes every day. Until the 'attack' I had a week ago. I do suffer intermittently from SVT but it doesn't bother me as doesn't tend to happen with exercise. However, last week I was on a long haul flight and as the plane left the ground I had the most excruciating pain behind my breast bone like a burning ball and crushing. It lasted several minutes before gradually wearing off. It was like nothing I'd ever felt before and I really thought that was it! I was nauseous and light headed for around 45 minutes afterwards. I had an empty seat next to me and so just put the arm rest up and lay down. The following day on my return home, I went to the GP who was most concernwd. ecg showed ST depression and suggested ischemia. Troponin test negative. I have been referred to the rapid access chest pain clinic. I can't really believe I could have anything wrong though. Any similar experiences? It just seems unreal.
