Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Have you ever experienced chest pains that lasted approx 30 minutes? Bad chest pains with lightheadedness, cold sweats, and nausea? What was it?

Do you have any clinics in your area? They generally have a sliding scale. Usually based on income and the copay covers everything like visit and bloodwork if needed.

You really do need to get checked out. Best of luck to you!

Have they sent you to a cardiologist?

I have it often. Usually accompanied by nausea and dizziness. My dr seems to think it is stress related. She also said it may be due to my pain level. My heart rate stays at around 130 or higher all the time.

Hope you feel better!

I've had bad chest pains.  Went to the ER and found out that it was acid reflux. I think it can cause some of the  things mentioned, definately the nausea.  Reflux also tends to get worse when you lay down.

It is time to go to the ER. It could be a heart attack

Yes and I wore a heart monitor for a month. It showed I have a high heart rate at resting. They gave me stress test too... I thought I was gonna die! Lol. The cardiologist also thinks its due to my pain. My pain level stays at a 10 most of the time :/
