This was 5 months ago and I still have chest pain (pain in right breast, aching in left arm
and under arm
, sometimes pressure in upper chest). I have not felt well since the big event, except that I have more energy. My pain tends to get a little more intense as the day progresses. I can start out my day happy and hopeful, but in the evening I get gloomy and think as you said, "is this a life sentence?"
I am 50, normal weight, no diabetes, but heart disease does run in the family.
