After a whole night of chest pain bad enough to wake me up at 9 pm and keep waking me up the rest of the night, I took a cab to the ER and got the usual bloodwork and chest x-ray which showed no heart attack. But also no explanation for the chest pain except "well maybe it's the A fib". They offered me a shot of morphine which I turned down but accepted a small scrip of Vicodin. I seriously don't want to take narcotic pain meds. I keep getting this impression that no one else in the entire world has this symptom. If it's stress, why did I have a really good day with no symptoms and then get waked up by it? To describe it, it's located midway between my breast and shoulder on the left side pretty much dead center in that side. It feels like an elephant is standing on my chest. Any info you can share would be so welcome.
