I am 28 weeks and 5 days with my first child. About a week and a half ago i ended up going to the emergency room because i woke up at about 3am with really bad chest pains, i couldnt breath and i was real hot and clamy, i was there for 2 hours and the er doc told me that i had indigestion but they waited till the chest pains and stuff had stopped before they done a EKG or blood work, my heart rate was between 115 and 120 the whole time and my blood pressure was 147/97, i am having a hard time believing that it was indigestion. Well about 2 nights ago at 1:30am i was laying down and suddenly my chest started hurting really bad and i got really hot and clamy, i decided not to go to the er unless it got like it did the first time, after about 30-45 minutes the chest pains stopped and i didnt feel as clamy. The chest pains happen towards the middle of the bottom of my chest and when i breath in it would hurt and i couldnt take deep breaths.
Now for the past 3 or 4 weeks i have been going thru depression and i have been stressing out more than usual. My dad and uncle passed away in feburary, 2 weeks apart, my cat ran away (i know that seems un-important but i was really attached to my cat), my fiance lost his job and a few other things have been going on. At night is when i really start to think about things and at night is when i feel the most sad/anxious/scarred/stressed/worry.
I was told that indigestion can be triggered by stress and depression.
Neither time that it happened i ate anything out of the ordinary during the day. The first time it happened i had cereal, ham and cheese hot pockets, toast and pork chops. The second time it happened i ate cereal, toast, a pickel and like half of a medium steak. I didnt eat before i went to bed either.
Do you think ive been having panic attacks or do you think it is indigestion?
Sorry this is soo long
