They say although it hurts, you should continue to inhald and exhale deeply or move around afair bit to get the heart pumping normally again.
anwz, i searched and found the answer on this website, so here's the answer:
ive recently had chest pains through my heart and left arm... im only 19 yrs old so i asked my mother is if was to young for a stroke and she said no... but she figured it was only a gas pocket in my back makin my left side hurt this way.. i dont know wether or not to go to the hospital or see if it gets better all alone..
Hi I'm currently a medical student, so I thought I may be able to help you with your problem. If your getting pain over your chest and your arm then there is a problem with your heart. It is not a gas pocket or a stroke. You see the bodies organs have a weird nerve supply. Whenever an organ hurts, instead of feeling it in the organ you feel it on a part of your skin (called a dermatome). This is because your body confuses the organ's "pain" nerves with the skin's "pain" nerves simply because the skin's nerves are used more. For the heart the dermatome (i.e. the part of skin that feels the pain) is the left part of the chest along with the arm. It is usually an aching or stabbing pain.
If there is burning pain in the centre of your chest it is not from the heart, but it would mean you have some sort of problems with your stomach. Usually its caused by an ulcer in the stomach (which itself is caused by a type of bacteria called H.pylori or by over using aspirins and paracetomols).
My best advice would be to ALWAYS SEE YOUR DOCTOR if you think somethings wrong. Most doctors don't mind if you come in with a worry and are happy to tell you that you will be fine. They'd rather give good news than bad. However if they seem annoyed that you came in, then they have no place to feel like that at all, because at the end of the day it is your life. Who cares what they think, because it is their job to see you no matter what. Don't worry about that though, because as long as they say your fine you can be HAPPPPPYYYYYY :) and if they say "we're glad you came in because their is a problem, but not to worry because we have treatment that can fix it" you can take the treatment get better and then be HAPPPPYYYYY :)
Hope this helps

I had pains over my heart and did a little research on it. I read everyone's posts on here and continued with my research. I think I was able to find what a lot of you are describing. It is called "Precordial Catch Syndrome" and you can ***this post is edited by moderator *** *** web addresses not allowed***
Basically doctors don't know what really causes it, but say "it poses no danger." So for all of you that are a little frustrated with going to doctors with no answers, maybe this is the reason. Being in healthcare myself, I find that it is better to do your own research before going to the doctor so then you can pose different possibilities or request to be referred to a specialist if they are unfamiliar with a particular condition. Everyone breathe easy... you are not going to die :) But please be familiar with the other warning signs as well as something more serious could be wrong (although I think many of you are suffering with PCS).
Hope this helps!
However I have irregular heart plaps,pain,& think I hold the record for hospital stays and E room visits.
They now refuse to see me.
I get regular beats,then BAM,a PVC with a stabbing pain.
This may last a few minutes to several days.
In the ER the warning beeps were going crazy.
I did have 2 chemical stress test and 2 radiation/rotational test.
I broke down and went for a heart cath both left and right side.
100% painless and just sedated and I saw how clear my arteries were.
No stent needed.
This was 1 year ago
They went away.
I felt good not I live in hell again.
I get them,break out in a sweat,but keep on walking,talking,carrying 35 pound back pack and going up 4 flights of steps.
Halter monitor says way to many pvc and pac along with just palpitations but all test are OK.
Bottom line is the serious problem is it affects your life
The more you get them the more you think about then.
If you had all the test I did then just look it in the eye and ignore it.
When I was sedated I felt like a new born person.
Having a nice G/F here talks me into not thinking about it.
You young kits please don't let it take your life away and be home bound.
It makes you depressed,sad about yourself,you shy away from going out with friends.
eat tiny meals and stay away from drugs and booze.
We all have an expiration date on our life.
We can sit home and die worrying or enjoy life and die on the dance floor.
I will just say this.
Demand all the test that I had.
If nothing shows then dance your life away.
GOD BLESS YOU!!!
