So, for the last five days I've been getting these periodic feelings of pressure or tightness in my chest on the left side. It is not a chest muscle...it feels deeper than that. It feels as if someone is putting their hand around my heart and squeezing it for a second or two. I don't have any other symptoms than that. I'm a long distance runner and I haven't had any problems or symptoms when I'm out running 10 miles, and I don't feel fatigued or dizzy or even feel pain or out of breath when it happens. I just feel that tightness. I am a bit stressed out and I have had panick attacks, not recently though, so I know that it's not a panick attack. What else could it be? Should I be worried?
I did find out about 5 months ago that I am anemic and after all of the doctors/tests/procedures, etc. they never did come to anything conclusive. Could there be a connection between these two things?
I am taking Iron for the anemia and a multivitamin and I take a birth control pill everyday, but I don't take any other medications.
Any thoughts or experiences or insight that anyone could give me would be great! Thanks!
