Question: My husband won't see a doctor for chest pains on right side


 janmomsis - Sun Jul 03, 2005 7:56 pm

:cry: My husband hasn't seen a doctor in 10 years. He is 200 pounds (or more) and 5'6". He has been getting sharp pains on the right side of his chest for the last three days. I know he has been under an unusual amount of stress and since he won't go to a doctor - what can I do? He takes climentine and zantac (just added today) for his normal gas issues.

Hello, there's no easy way to say this but your husband has to see a doctor asap just to get checked out, it may be absolutely nothing but he has to have tests done to determine what is going on here.

Let me know of his decision

I know men can be stubborn. I have one of those myself. They think if they don't know about it then it's all OK. He really needs to be seen. What a little blood work gonna hurt? That will probably be the most invasive thing they do. You just have to be firm with him I guess but I know it's impossible sometimes. Good luck. :roll:
