For the past few days, Ive have been getting chest pain, not like a heart attact ) not that I know what that feels like) It ususally happens when I cant take the pain anymore. It is way out of control. Ive been at 8 on the pain scale for a week now with no relief. My PM switched my BT meds last visit on Oct 21. From 7.5 hydrocodone 4 x's a day to 5mg Oxycodone 3 x's a day. Not only am I having BT pain Its a constant pain even after I take my Oxycontin ( which was doing the trick) Im also getting my 2nd EPI on Nov 19th ( cant wait). Im just curious if anyone else gets the chest pain? I knoe chronic pain effects your whole body. What does a heart attact feel like anyway?

  • My doctor says we should be worried about the length of the pain that we have and not in all cases and that is why it is difficult to diagnose but heart attack pre-empt an increasing pain building over time, the angina pain which is of a shorter duration and high intensity, brought on maybe through activity or increased risk.

    If you are at all worried you could go and get checked out with and ECG which will also give you a historic indication of your event, some suggest that although this is sometimes age specific this is not always the case.

    You would expect spine pain to increased secondary pain in your stomach area or alternate legs but from my understanding not in the chest area.
