ok the weirdest thing happened to me when i was at work and i have no idea what was so i got really scared and thought i was having like a heart attack or something , what happened was i bent down to pick something up and when i stood up i had the worst pain in my chest, like it felt like it was my heart , and i couldnt more cause it hurt soo bad, and when i breathed it hurt too so i got really scared. i had to go out back and sit down and i didnt go away for a little but, i got a bit better then i went back out but it still hurt, and it felt like i couldnt take a deep breath, eventually it went away but it was so scarey and i just had no idea what it was

  • Hi, It sounds like something I used to get years ago... Happened many times also felt heave in my chest.... Did not get a correct diagnosis for several years . It was caused by a spontaneous Pneumothorax which means a collapsed lung. I used to get it with menstraul cycle . Have not had an episode since hysterectomy.... Just a thought ... something to check into . can be seen on a chest x-ray.
