My chest hurts really bad

It hurts to the point where when everytime I take a breath it hurts more. Does anyone know of any meds I can take to relieve this pain. I cannot go to the ER because I have no one to watch my kids. At the hospital here they will not see a patient who have kids with them. I know this because I have been turned away before because I had my daughter with me and all I went for was a sprained ankle. Please any ideas are welcome. BTW I am not pregnant so the meds wont affect me.

  • A hospital can't turn your away if you have to bring your child bc you are a single mother...
    Chest pains can be a lot of things Heartburn, respiratory infection, even heart attach/issues and unless
    you know for sure it's hard to tell you what you might be able to take.
    I would go and see a doctor ...

  • Sprained ankle and chest pains are totally different. They can't turn you away for chest pains. You need to be seen by a doctor if it's hurting really bad.

  • Could it be like indigestion or heartburn? Have you tried tums?

  • The hospital CAN NOT turn you away. It is against the law.

    Maybe you need to go get a cop to take you to the hospital so they can be there when you are refused services for chest pain.

    I have heart problems and I know what pain you are talking about and you NEED to be checked out ASAP.

    Good luck.

  • It would be unethical for a hospital to turn you away for for having your children with you, especially chest pains. How do they know it's not life threatening??? Are you just supposed to leave you kids unattended??? Dumb asses!!
