Hi everyone, I feel better when I listen to other people having the same issues with the pinching in the heart are as I have. I am a 27 years old hispanic male, 5'6, and 127 lbs. I have a good health overall because I never feel any pains at all, EXCEPT, the pinching that goes on top of my heart, specifically, the skin that is immediately on top of the heart. I know the heart is located just beneath it because of my anatomy courses. It is weird because it comes and goes not very often, it comes it goes like for a week or so, and then disappears even for months, it usually happens when I am sitting in my room studying. It is a terrible feeling I understand each and everyone of you. Last year, when it started, I went to the ER because it was happening every single day like 10 or 12 times per day. Even when I was sleeping it woke me up all of the sudden. So at the ER they did the x-rays and EKG and the doctor said that the heart was not enlarged and the electrical system of my heart was k. So he gave 800 mg of ibuprofen, and sent me home. The medical record said that it might be a muscle spam, or reflux from my stomach. After taking ibuprofen the pain slowly dissipated, and I started to feel better. However, it was never gone, 2 or 3 pinches now and then continued to happen. THE PINCHES ALWAYS IN THE ZONE WHERE THE HEART is present, never, in another site. So, I decided to go to cardiologist, and they did stress test. They said I have a perfect heart. Even though, I was diagnosed with systolic murmur when I was a child. The cardiologists said that it was nothing to worry about. Then, all of the sudden the pinching pain went away like for 6 months. The only thing they said I should take is ibuprofen. Now, I am feeling the same pinching pain again, but I try not to pay attention to it because I have changed my lifestyle, I am going to the gym, and do cardio, also I try to sleep more, and move around when I am studying. I mean, I try to walk around library while reviewing concepts, and I am always striving for breaking the sedentary habit of been sitting for long periods of time. The interesting thing is that new research suggests that ibuprofen increases the risk of heart attack in healthy people. And it seems like when I drink ibuprofen I feel better. I wish a feel the pinching pain everywhere but not on top of the heart. It makes things different.
Let's see what happens.
