Question: Strange Chest pain


 soundtech04 - Fri Nov 19, 2004 5:10 am

I have experience this twice, where I am dreaming about something and a start feeling a painfull sharp pain on my chest. I get wake up only half awake and i still feel it, but when i wake up completely the pain is gone. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

User avatar Dear Soundtech,

i think that this might be something related to the dream itself, sometimes during dreaming, one would experience a strong heart beating sensation that can be preceived as chest discomfort or pain especially if you are awakened suddenly.

If this condition continues, it would not be a bad idea to mention it to your primary care provider.

Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
