Chest tightness and pain in chest help

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello

Need some help. I have been suffering with chest tightness like someone is sitting on my chest and I'm not getting any oxygen.  I also get pain with it than it travels to my back. I am a 37 year old female. I have done ecg, stresstest, echocardiogram and all is normal.  I'm not convinced. I keep thinking it's my heart. Anyone else feel what I feel ? What are the chances it is my heart

    Sounds suspiciously like Angina and am surprised it does not show up in an ecg. I am 85 and have similar symptoms  on exertion. These subside quickly after I put a Sorbitrate tablet (5mg) under my tongue.

    Hello Maryann,

    i am also suffering from the same condition as you are passing through------but i didnot feel pain i have gurggling sounds in my stomach-------and also i burp alot---------i am 31 year male and suffering it from 5 years-----i have done 17 ecgs,2 echo of heart,24 hours holter ecg,blood work like cholestrol etc every thing is normal but have the same feeling--------i read on internet that Rest echo result is not 100% accurate though it show valves of heart when you are at resting position i also read it there are lot of people whose echo is clear but have a heart problem-------

    Lets come to Stress test :i also read it on internet that if there is no sever blockage in artries Stress test also can not pick abnormalities-------like if some one has 65% blockage stress test will be normal----more then 70% of blockage stress will pick but some time it can not pick even 90%of blockage-----i am not professional but i share what i read ---

    i am also so scared and on 23 i have Cardiac contrast Ct scan---angiogram and Ct scan contrast angiography is 100% accurate---------the choice is yours you wanna go like that or make it more clear------these are the test by which you will make it more calrify------

    I suffered those symptoms at exactly the same age, but my tests were not normal, and it was determined that I had suffered a heart attack caused by a coronary artery vasospasm.  If all your tests are normal, then you must conclude that it is not cardiac

    in origin, it is something else.
