I have an uncomfortable feeling in my chest like a tight band and am getting worried
It's been going on and off for a while, I've tried Andrews and it didn't make much difference. It's like a band under my boobs and also around my back (have removed my bra so it's not that). Seems to be worse at night and when I'm lying down. Does anyone have any ideas?
I was woken up twice over 6 months with something just like that. I lay there, realised I was fully alive, went and had a very british cup of tea and it went away. I was very stressed at the time. I did go to the dr though and was listened to and prodded thoroughly. After that it didn't come back.
Magnarta, are you drinking enough? I sometimes get something like this when I'm dehydrated. That could be it, esp. in this weather. You should seek advice anyway though, chest pain shouldn't be ignored.
