I am a 40 year old male, 6'4", 287 lbs. I have high cholesterol and take Crestor and a lipid daily. My father had a heart attack (and survived) at age 64, and I've had two stress tests since then as a precaution. Both came out fine (ast one was in the fall). I'm overweight and not in the best shape. I eat ok, but get hardly any exercise between my job and having 3 young children. Recently, I've been getting some pressure in the center of my chest (just left of my sternum), but it is generally relieved when I press on it and/or burp. I also get tightness in my left shoulder and shoulder-blade, and some numbness, but I also have a herniated disk in my neck. If I press on the shoulder muscle in the right place, or sleep on it oddly, my arm falls asleep. I don't get chest pains when I go up stairs or run around with my kids, but I do get some chest tightness and get out-of-breath easily. I don't know what to think - if I had a stress test 10 months ago, but still have these types of discomfort, is it my heart? Or is the pressure gas-related and the shoulder-tightness likely related to the herniated disk? Please advise.
