So, how to explain. Basically Ive been having chest tightness all week, fine, fair enough I attribute this to the Acid Reflux my Doctor prescribed me meds for without doing an actual examination (So naturally Im slightly sceptical)
Ive also been feeling like I cant breath. I know I can because I can take deep breaths and exhale. But I feel like I am not getting enough oxygen, but again I am because I am not dead yet.
However, Today, I have been getting sudden intense stabbing pains in my chest. Really bad. The worst one lasted for about 3 minutes. I wasnt really doing anything, just sitting watching TV. This gave me a panic attack, probably the 8th one this week.
So I decided to go for a 7km cycle with the girlfriend. At the halfway point I felt really short of breath and I was convinced that I was having a heart attack so we had to stop and take a few minutes to relax. While I debated calling an ambulance or not. It seemed to pass, the pain and anxiousness and breathlesness.
So we cycled back the 3.5km at a slower pace on the road this time instead of the beach. No breathlesness at all this time. Anyway, I am quite anxious.
Logically my brain is telling me, if I had a major heart of lung problem theres no way I could have done that cycle surely? The chest pains I had earlier have not returned yet, althought I did feel minor pains in my right shoulder as I was cycling but I reckon that was muscle discomfort.
Any help please?
