    As the title says. I just been havin' some kinda weird pressure in my chest, and maybe its 'cos I drink rather much coffee or questionable diet at times, as I've forgotten to eat daily shares of fruits and vegs and such... but any of ya had this? I'm suspectin' a symptom of what could be eventually a possible stroke or heart attack or then somethin'. I know, I should prolly check a doctor to be totally sure, but just havin' had to ask. 'course, it may just be muscles achin' from sit-ups as I prolly do'em more or less wrong. (CASE SOLVED, just badly stretched chest muscles)

    Maybe its cholesterol. *Shrug*

    This is open for anyone else wantin' to talk about their ailments or askin' stuff or so, as well as givin' advice and stuff. However, that advice is not as if in replacin' a visit to a doctor or anything, just as if in as stuff one can do before arrivin' to that appointment.

    Why would you go to a doctor when the finest medical advice in the world is available right here?

    Take two leeches each evening. Pop them on your tongue and let them slowly dissolve. Continue for at least three weeks.

    Assumin' that wasn't just a joke thrown at me...

    Even if its mostly situated around the heart or? It kinda feels a little bit like musclepain more or less, though I think I've felt it a bit on the other side of the chest too.

    We have a several honest-to-goodness medical doctors here on this very board. And do you know what their advice is going to be? It's the same advice they give each and every time someone makes a thread like this.

    GET OFF THE INTERNET AND GO SEE A DOCTOR IN REAL LIFE.


    Your intentions are good, and it's nice of you to want to share with the community and talk about what ails whom, but honestly, coming and asking for medical advice from a bunch of untrained professionals is just ... not the right thing to do.

    So please, for your own good, just go make an appointment to see a medical professional.

    Don't worry, that was not the intent, or kinda was. It just easier to hear that from a bunch of anonymous people on the net than gettin' pushed on that by a relative/friend and easier to get to the doctor. Ya know?

    Besides, this is more or less also meant for people to tell about their stories about their ailments and how it was treated and all that.

    Also, don't eat expired mincemeat. At least microwave pizza's can make ya throw up all the contents of your stomach and then more even if there was nothin' durin' the day, hittin' every half an hour at worst times, even in the middle of a night.

    Turns out that it was just pec and other chest muscles havin' been strained or so, 'cos of bad way of sittin' at the comp (and 'cos my former chair went and broke down and been sittin' on this old wooden chair for months now. This is confirmed by the fact I got the similar pain on the other side (pressure isn't exactly the correct word for the feelin' I got ^^; ). I just need to stretch it out and get a new chair.

    I'm a Physician Assistant. A highly trained medical provider. And in person, I'd be more than capable of examining you and formulation differential diagnoses and a plan for further evaluation and treatment.

    And you know what I'm gonna tell you to do? Go see a doctor.
