im having chest pain in ribs on upper left side.mainly when i bend over to tie shoes or pick something up off of ground.i had angioplasty with a stent placed in my right aorta 7 yrs ago. just had stress test done in sept.07. everthing suposedlly looked fine from this test.i try to eat healthy,take 20 mg generic zocor,aspirin,folic acid and vitamin b12 daily.have not had no pain at all since 2001 stent surgery.im 42yr 5'7" 160lbs. the pain doesnt feel like the middle chest pain i had that led to stent,that was a strong deep pressure on the middle chest area that would slowly come from lower chest to upper chest with increasing pressure. this pain in side feels dull until i bend over, move or twist,then it feels kinda sharp.what worries me is i had indegestion with first chest pain and have had some indegestion with this side pain also.should i give it a day or 2 and see if it goes away?
