View Full Version : Possible Heart Problem

04-20-2009, 02:08 PM
I think I need to see a heart doctor. I have been having off and on a pain that goes up into my chin and more or less lodges there under the chin. First it seems to start in the chest area, I can hardly feel it, and then it comes up into the area under the chin. I almost went to the hospital emergency with it last weekend. I have had this pain before but it quickly subsided in the past. But the last time I had this pain, it caused discomfort for at least 45 minutes.

You really should check it out to make sure if it's serious or not. Also indigestion can be mistaken for heart problems. Like Acid Reflux. I have both. Hope things get better soon!!!

Yes, it could be something not serious at all.BUT with you mentioning the jaw pain,chin pain....id be a bit suspicious.So you get listening to us on this one.A quick check up will do no harm,but only good.

I have acid reflux also. So it is hard to know one way or the other if it is heart related. I am definitely going next time I have a spell.

Um yes, take this from a healthcare professional, "time wasted is muscle lost". If you are having heart problems, you may be causing permanent damage! Next time, go to the ER!

I too have acid reflux, but also have major jaw problems. I do know though, not to scare you as like you and all of us say,it COULD be nothing...BUT when heart pain and jaw pain together could indicate your heart.Im no doctor and not very knowledgeable.Just to be safe, next time just go and get yourself checked.If its not your heart YIPEEEEEE at least you know.But if it is and you are leaving it.......not worth it! So go and get checked.Sorry if i sound forceful...just worried about you my friend.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
