Chest Pains And Screams Of Fright

Can POTS cause very painful stabbing under your left breast always in the same one small spot? The pain often follows a sudden and inexplicable fright to mundane sounds or movements which make me scream out loud like I have seen a mouse or ghost! This occurs multiple times a day.

Has anyone experienced this?! if it is not POTS what does it sound like?

I do have pain in this area, heart pain, attributed to POTS. I've spoken to my doctor about it and have been told not to worry about it but to ride it out. If it's new to you, however, you probably want to go to your dr and ask about it to make sure nothing is wrong.

My mom had this for many years while I was growing up along with many other symptoms we now can believe was related to dysautonomia. I now have POTS so can guess that what you are describing can be part of it.

I get pains/cramps around the left chest area as well. I usually just attribute it to POTS and it works itself out. If you start feeling numb or tingly on one side of your body, you should probably call 911 -- that's a sign of a heart attack (as I'm sure you're aware!)

Be well!
