Chest Pain Where it Feels like Your Heart has a Charlie Horse


Anyone else get these? I get them almost every night in what I guess are night terrors. I feel like I'm having a heart attack and am afraid to move but the pain eventually goes away.

acid reflux can mimic heart problems.

Sounds more like panic attacks. See a doc. Get some meds.

Have you been to a cardiologist? Might be something you want to get checked out.

I've had a couple scares myself and I've had to go to the doc, appears I'm fine on paper but I still get pains on occassions

Quite likely it's very bad reflux but I'd go to Urgent Care or an ER just the same. Why take chances?

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.

I went to a cardiologist and they made me run on a treadmill and wear a belt that monitored my heart for a day. That was a few months ago and they said it was just stress.

oh heart pains? no biggie, i'd just ignore it completely and wait for something more severe to happen. The heart is totally overrated IMHO, it's basically a second appendix.

What is my heart doing during that time though? Is it moving irregularly?

They make medication for that. I had fainting spells a few years ago and they attributed it to stress and a vasovagal response. I take a 1/2 of a beta blocker every night and it helps a lot.

Why don't you get a fricking cardiologist to answer that question instead of random jerkoffs on the internet

They gave me medicine they say is used for vets with PTSD but I still get the night terrors. Not as frequently but I still get them.

Sounds like beta blockers can do the trick. I ain't no doctor though.

My chest sorta area does this from time to time but its just gas buildup and I just got to do something to get me to burp or something.

Uncomfortable as hell though.

re: Chest Pain Where it Feels like Your Heart has a Charlie Horse


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.

Had the same thing with my lung. It was a blood clot, which kills 1 in 4 in the lung. Probably more in the heart. I'd go to a doctor.

I'm only 26 so I doubt its a precursor to a heart attack. Stranger things have happened though.
