Hi girlsmom4299,

I'm sorry to hear that you had such a frightening experience. To properly answer your question, your doctor will require a lot more information to properly answer this question. A physical examination and additional testing would be important also.

When we evaluate chest discomfort we explore the following:

- location
- onset
- type
- radiation
- associated symptoms: shortness of breath, sweating, nausea, burping, acid backwash
- duration
- intensity
- offset (rapid versus slow) and relieving factors (i.e. massage, tylenol, deep breathing)

As a first step I would recommend that you make a note of these points and arrange an appointment to discuss them with your family doctor.

Take care and good luck.
