Customer Question
I have chest tightening...

I have chest tightening, with no other symptoms other then shortness of breath and a sudden urge to urinate. It feels like my bra is on way too tight. Can last anywhere from 5-10 minutes

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

My health has been perfectly fine. I’m 26 years old with two kids.

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

I’ve had this pain once before. Maybe 5 years ago. I thought I was having a heart attack, called ems and was told it was aneixty. Have no history of aneixty.

There is no numbness in my arms. And it just increases when I go to lay down. Increases where I start to shake.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
But I am able to walk around, can hardly talk while it is happening.

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described can be due to angina.It occurs when heart is not getting enough blood and oxygen.It is most often caused by blockages in the arteries that supply blood to your heart.Angina may feel like pressure or squeezing in your chest.Stable angina isn't a heart attack, but it makes a heart attack more likely in the future.

Another possibility of your symptoms can be anxiety.Cause of anxiety attack is the body's normal "alarm system," the set of mental and physical mechanisms that allows a person to respond to a threat, tends to be triggered unnecessarily, when there is no danger

All types of chest pressure or chest pain should be checked by the doctor to rule out any heart disease.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to rule out the heart disease and to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
