Question: Chest Pain leading into neck and lingering?


 ana_maria - Sun Oct 24, 2004 8:57 pm

Hi my names ana and im 20 years old. And I've been having chest pain lately where it feels like someones taking a hammar to my chest. and teh pain radiates into my neck and sometimes my right arm. It lingers usually 30-40 minutes. At this moment im having chest pains again and ive had it for over an hour. It feels like i got the wind knocked out of me. Yet i havent done much of anything except drive to the computer lab?

User avatar Hi ana_maria,
If you are having chest pain that radiates up your neck, you need a work up by a cardiologist. Any sort of chest pain needs evaluated to rule out an underlying problem.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
