Well, my boss made me call the dr today after almost passing out twice in 2 weeks. I don't know what is going on, but I am scared. I have felt like I have a lump in my chest for the past 3 days, and when I burp, it doesn't go away. My chest hurts when I swallow food, but not when I drink. When I called the office today, they said to come in and have someone drive me. How scary is that, I can't even drive myself. I just hope it is indigestion and nothing more serious. We have a very strong family hx of heart disease, my grandmother had heart failure almost 13 yrs ago, and now has chf, leaky valves and my dad had a heart attack at 38 and now has a tear on his aorta. The odds are not in my favor. My aunt passed away 3 yrs ago from a massive heart attack, I am just hoping it is not my heart.

My EKG and labs were both fine. The next 2 tests are an echocardiogram on Thursday and then a haltermonitor next week. I am somewhat relieved, I just hope the next 2 tests turn out ok.

    hope the other tests come back okay. Hope you and your doctor figure out what the problem is so that it can be treated and you can feel better and less fearful.

    Let us know how everything turns out. It kind of sounds like a hiatal hernia BUT heart disease in women hides itself behind many different symptoms. Please let us know as soon as you hear anything from the doctor! I hope it is just stress or something relatively minor.
