Chest Pain

Sometimes, I get chest "pain" when I am stressed out. I just had a stress echo done (an ultrasound of my heart after exercise) and all looks fine according to the cardiologist. I was just curious to see if there are other moms out there who are so stressed out that they get this feeling of tightening across the chest from time to time? It can not be healthy. I need to learn to deal with stress better. I take things too seriously. I know I know, I should be doing yoga or something, but I just do not have the time................

  • Sounds like a panic/anxiety attack. Many people have ended up in the ER thinking they're having a heart attack, when really it's just (harmless, but miserable) panic. Absolutely miserable. Please, seek help if you're able to! You don't have to suffer.
