Been getting chest pains for a few years now. Normally lasts no more than 10mins. It's always on my left side. It's like a stabbing pain that gets worse if i move out of the chair and deep breathing makes it hurt more. When I get it i need to sit down, because moving or standing its too painful. Anyone know what this is. Google says angina but don't know enough about it to say that is what it is.

Listen to this man.

I had similar ****. Been to heart specialist who said I'll live a long life and nothing wrong with the ticker (thank **** for that) but I've changed my lifestyle just a little, more exercise, less weight and working on stress reduction....

For stress I stopped watching the news and stay out of the politics thread on this forum!

But as already mentioned, please see a doctor.

I don't think its anything to worry about. I get it about once a month. Plus i hate going to the doctor. If its something serious i will go see him. Dr pissed me off once when he wanted me to take more different medicines. I said more ******* medicine, then walked out.

As per my mate V.S 5.0
ASK YOUR DOCTOR!

I'm sure i had similar a few years ago while working under car and turning a certain way pulled something and hurt chest bad. Haven't had issue in a long time.
P.s i have a great chiropractor who fixes many issues via my back and goid advise. Magic!!

But you need a doc mate

As all above said get help.
If something is found and you have found it early much better.

Unless it is heartburn you need to ask a doctor. Just walk in to a public hospital next time you have this issue and tell them you have chest pain. You will get seen within minutes ; ) A friend did that and found out he was having a heart attack at age 38. It happens.
If it is heartburn it will happen soon after eating a massive meal.

Agree with all the above. Find another Doc and get yourself checked. The sooner the better.

I wondered if it might have had something to do with relfux as I'm on medicine every day for that. But it's not related i don't think using the Google Dr. I can try to get in next week if they have appointments free.
