  1. Fellow Arrsers,

    since about 2am, I've been experienceing a slight tightening in my chest and a slight difficulty in breathing, with some slight pains, but nothing to set any major panic alarms off...


    should this be setting panic alarms off and should I get down to A&E most ricky tick, or could it be something not so serious? :?
  2. Does your left arm hurt?
  3. I lost my left arm at waterloo.

    seriously though, no. I get a sharp pain in my right arm at the same time as the chest pain though.

    **** it. to the nhs I go.
  4. I was serious about your left arm.....

  10. Hello buddy,

    Best to give NHS Direct a call on 0845 46 47. It might be nothing but best to check.

    If you are Clammy (cold and sweaty), hurts to breathe with tightening or pains in your chest then def call them.

    The likelyhood is they will put you through to an Ambulance Service but don't let that worry you too much thats just their procedure if they even sniff at something cardiac related. Remember you can tell them you don't want an ambulance if you ant to make your own way to medcen, GP, nhs walk in centre or even your nearest casualty. a quick hook upto an ECG will be all you need to know.

    By the way i work for an Ambulance Service, don't take the chance fella, just get checked out.
