I know something is wrong. I am not sure what it is, but I know it. I am having pain in the chest, at times pretty severe. It has been going on for about 3 weeks. It is usually at the same time of the day, which is pretty weird. It is scaring me. And my ribs hurt. I know the scans will show something. And then I am screwed. Oh, by the way, the same thing happened in April. And the scans were clear. This is scanxiety, or acute hypochondria. Everything in the body is related to cancer...every owie...the hip hurts, bone met. Pain in the abdomen, liver met....etc. I am not the only one that has this. My scans are tues and wed. I should have the results Wednesday afternoon. If they are clear, then I will go see the cardiologist about the chest pain.
The pain that concerns me might be related to asthma. But Asthma would typically be discomfort rather than real pain. This feels really tight. I can envision the cause: something restricting the breathing. Or it could be indigestion, but I have never had it like this. The thing is, I always fel it at the some time of the day, around 7:00 PM. I have to believe angina would not be so regular. I would get it checked out, except if it is heart, I want to get the scans first.
