Gracefulprincess Posted August 11, 2007 Report Share Posted August 11, 2007 This week I've been having pressure and heaviness in my chest. The best way to describe it is, it feels like something is sitting on my chest, and sometimes it's hard to breathe. this isn't a new symptom for me, it's just been worse this week. Usually when i get this, it just goes away and doesn't come back too often. But this week i've been getting it on and off since monday. I can barely do anything without feeling this heaviness in my chest. Yesterday i was folding my laundry and started to feel like that. I've been in contact with my dr's office all this week. my cardiologist says i need to see him, but the earliest he can see me isn't till the 20th. So i guess my questions is for those of you who deal with pressure in your chest, how do you deal with it?? When it hits me, i usually try to rest, but that doesn't always help. I'm really hesistate about going to the er, cause they won't know what to do, and will end up sending me home. So i'll just be wasteing my time and end up more frustrated. Today i've been okay, at least so far. So maybe it was just a bad week...who knows. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
