Hi, have had chest pains for over year, recently been under extreme stress (having only month to move out house; living in tent;my best friend died ;etc)and woke up with chest pains over heart. It isn't too bad unless I lift anything with left arm (especially if reaching up or down) and really hurts heart when sneezing. Other wise I don't notice it too much (but, because I'm mildly autistic: I don't notice or process pain the same as most people - I once wore a wisdom tooth that was infected down to root, and dentist couldn't belive I put up with the pain for months without having treatment)
Any help or advice appreciated.
I'm 44 (the other day)and do have history of heart disease in both parents families.
I also have Sleep Apnea, which apparently stresses the heart muscle when I stop breathing in the night for up to a few minutes.
