just do like most Americans and go get a fricking prescription drug for whatever you think is wrong with you. hell I'm sure your doctor will throw in a couple bonus drugs depending on which drug rep most recently paid for his greens fee at the local country club.

When I had my heart attack it felt like someone was squeezing my heart and pushing on my chest at the same time. I was hoping it was gas, but after a few gulps of Coke and a good burp or three I reluctantly concluded that it wasn't gas. Went to ER found out it was a HA. Found a 100% blockage and a 99% blockage, and a stent was put in. A balloon took care of one of the blockages. I still have damage to the heart, but he told me that some people just wait too long and either the damage is more extensive and irreparable, or they die.
Blockage could be causing pain...I still get chest pains; angina, I guess, and sometimes after I smoke a cigarette. I'm also under an ungodly amount of constant stress, so that doesn't help. I'd try a different cardiologist to see if he doesn't find some blockage somewhere.
