Yesterday afternoon while at work I experienced some

Yesterday afternoon while at...

Yesterday afternoon while at work I experienced some tightness and pain in my chest. It passed in a short while, and never came back. This morning about 3:15 a.m. I awoke to what felt like a stomach ache at the top of my stomach. When I was 19 I experience a spasmatic ulcer and that's the same feeling, and in the same area that I am having now. However, I've gone to the bathroom about 4 times since 3:15 a.m. with diarreha. Because I wasn't hungry last night all I had for dinner was cereal. Currently, I'm not in pain but my stomach & chest feel somewhat tight. Is this simply indigestion? Thank you, Belinda

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

I do not recall having this before, and no, I do not have any shortness of breath.

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

Several years ago, I had a chest pain that lasted a couple of hours & went to emergency. They gave me a nitrogen tablet under my tongue but I later saw a cardiologist and found that my heart skips a beat occasionally (approximately 400 times in a 24 hour period) as shown by wearing a heart monitor for 24 hours.

If it is accompanied by diarrhea, it is most likely stomach cramp due to indigestion but it should not cause chest tightness. Considering the history , I would suggest seeing a doctor if it worsens or do no get better in a day or two. Meanwhile ginger and peppermint tea help with diarrhea.

Sorry, I forgot one symptom, a tend to get a little light-headed too. It's not constant, it comes-and-goes. Thank you!

This a symptom which can be both dehydration due to diarrhea or chest pain related to heart issue, it is better to get yourself examined and get an ekg.

Best wishes.
