Wondering if anyone that had Covid 19 previously has experienced heart pains, chest tightness etc weeks or months after.
By way of background, I am a 28 year old male who contracted Covid back in October, along with my parents who are in their 60s. Thankfully all of our symptoms were mild similar to a seasonal cold and all recovered within around 10 days.
Over the last few days, I have been experiencing acute chest pains in my left side where my heart is. This has come on all of a sudden, prior to covid and even during and after being infected I never experienced this.
The best way I can describe it is a feeling of sudden tension and throbbing around the heart, along with stabbing pains and some shooting pains in my left arm. I have booked a GP appointment as obviously this is slightly alarming, however I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced similar?
My dad who is in his 60s was affected with the exact same problem as myself, albeit a few weeks before.
I'm otherwise fit and healthy and to all intents and purposes this seems to have come out of nowhere.
I'm curious to find out if anyone else has had similar experiences and would welcome feedback from your experiences.
I have been told by NHS consultants that chest pain and heart complications are some of the symptoms that have been identified post Covid, however there's not enough data available so it would be great to hear other people's experiences to hopefully generate a wider evidence base moving forward.
Thanks for reading and keep on moving forward!
