Pain on right side of chest. Goes from chest to back of shoulder. Sore on right side of chest and sharp pain. Has lasted three days now.
Not to sound flippant, but as a nurse, my advice is to try TUMS... sounds more like indigestion to me. I know it may hurt like the devil, but give antacids a try before you panic. We have a LOT of people come in with similar symptoms, thinking they are having a heart attack when all they need is some sodium bicarb.. Munch a couple of tums. Now if that DOESN'T work, of course check with you Internal Med doc...
Yes, I agree, heart would be center or left side with pain going to jaw or neck or down left arm. Altho' it is always better to err on the side of caution, especially if you are a woman. Our heart attacks are very unusual & different than most men. If you feel incapacitated, I would go to the ER or have someone take you or call 911 if it gets unbearable & doesn't stop soon...
Hi Jus Me,
When I was younger I had a really active and social life. My doctor at the time who specialized in the heart told me to cut my friends and keep about 3 only close friends. I was getting sharp chest pains all the time.It would hurt to breathe. I did what he asked and it went away. Now I have a very relaxed life.
Hope you find out what is happening with you too.
