Just over one week ago, I started getting chest pains. I was surprised as, even though I am over 70 yrs, I have been going to the gym for supervised work outs twice a week. I have never smoked and my ECG and lung tests were good, with a B.P. of 150/80.
However, even after slow walking I get the pain in my chest either on the left side or in the trachea - it reminds me of how I used to feel after a sprint or hard work out!
I am going for a blood test but I doubt if that will show up anything.
It is strange that many people seem to be exhibiting similar symptoms but we don't have a clear explanation of the cause.
