I second Terri's recommendation. Better safe than sorry, drasel! We will be here when you return. I use to work on a cardiac unit also and are on medication for Angina. I have a cardiologist who is fabulous. Don't take any chances.
True like I said earlier it most likely is a GI concern, however, as most ER physicians will tell anyone, we would rather someone come in and get it checked, and we are able to rule out any cardiac problems, it is a relief! So just in case always rule on the safe side when having pain in that particular area especially for women. It is documented women have completely different signs and symptoms of myocardial infarction or ischemia. Pain where ever the area is the body's way of letting us know something is not right. I would hope that despite chronic pain...when we experience something quite different, there is a need to seek a medical expertise. Much love, Terri
