I have had sharp chest pains for the 3rd time this week.

Customer Question
I have had sharp...

I have had sharp chest pains for the 3rd time this week. Last one was today. I'm a 42 yr old woman in good health don't smoke or drink. Also have had smaller less painful pains in between the 3 I have had.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?

I have never had this before. I can't breath when the pains are happening as it hurts so much. I just take little breaths to get air in until it passes. It lasts about 30 seconds or so

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My grandfather died of a heart attack and mother had heart problems

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
