I'm 26 yrs old, female, slim, exercise, light smoker, no medications, no drugs, don't drink, have chronic migraines and thick blood. Recently found out I have a small cyst on each thyroid 2mm in size, being monitored. Have been having episodes of severe chest pain since my son was born. The first episode occurred during labor and delivery, was strong and lasted 1/2 hr.
The pain starts out feeling like my bra is too tight and keeps tightening. I get very nauseous. After a minute it changes suddenly to severe pain in the middle of my chest. Feels like chest is going to explode. Vision dims, get very dizzy, get a massive headache and yawn lots. Episodes last 45 min to 1 1/2 hrs then end suddenly. Symptoms always the same. After I'm exhausted. It's excrutiating so I try to control my breathing. They happen at odd hrs of the night/morning. I'm almost always resting when they start. Seems to happen when I'm not stressed. Have been getting them for over a year. Called 911 twice, have been taken to ER five times. Each time I get an ECG nothing shows up as pain is over. I lost consciousness once. Someone said that when I came to the pain hadn't changed. Noticing a pattern. They happen around ovulation and again 2-3 days before I get my period. Sometimes I'll get them for afew mths. Then I'll go 2 mths without any pain. It's been 3 mths since the last one. I found out that we are expecting our second baby. Am very concerned of what this could do to our baby. Every doctor says they don't know what's wrong.They've ruled out GERD, anxiety, did a CT scan, chest X-rays, blood tests, several ECG and a 24 hr holter(no pain during). Nothing shows up. Had prescriptions to rule out GERD and anxiety. Am quitting smoking for baby, down to 2 a day now. Can't hurt! I'm hoping to get a referral to specialist, but in the meantime would greatly appreciate any helpful info, Thank you
