Nope I am not going to blame Darwin on this one....

Ya know maybe3 he just wanted to see what other people thought before going and getting all crazy calling up the hospital. Just because he has pains in his chest doesn't mean he's having a heart attack.
And if he WAS having a heart attack the time he spent posting and reading responses could have been time used to save his ass.
Maybe the asprin helped, but the pain in my arm's gone. I don't feel so drowsy anymore. Still sitting down though. I'll try to stand up in a few mins to see if I still feel like I'm going to faint.

Thanks Raiden256 for the suggestion.

:confused: I sure hope this is a joke. 911 if it's not, let the professionals take a look with some better diagnostics like a 12 lead, vitals, blood sugar levels, etc. We get paid if you call or not though, your choice.

The guy can't stand up and you tell him to exercise? Right...
well, normally I'd see a doctor but since you can't stand up I'd call for medical help.

If you're just worried, what was your BP at the last check up?
Which are you experiencing?

squeezing or heavy pressure
a tight band on the chest
"an elephant sitting on your chest"
bad indigestion
Shortness of breath
Cough
Lightheadedness - dizziness
Fainting
Nausea or vomiting
Sweating, which may be profuse
Feeling of "impending doom"
Anxiety

Listen to him. He knows what he is talking about...if you answer yes to the "impending doom" question, call 911 NOW.
i've felt the impending doom before and i'm still around.

Going to the doctor will probably answer your questions. If nothing else, it will probably put your mind at ease, and you will probably start to feel better as soon as you stop worrying about it.

Hey speaking of heart attacks I was once in the hospital and following surgery in the recovery room I had these immense chest pains, everytime I tried to breathe in it hurt like hell, so I was breathing as shallow as I could to avoid the pain, they said my heart rate went too low, cause may be air entering the blood stream, loss of blood or something along those lines. (was in surgery for a few hours, not heart related surgery)

They gave me some IV med to raise the heart rate, but I can't remember the name of it, I think it may begin with an R? So what kind of meds do you give to raise someone's heartrate?

Please tell me this is not some kind of perverse obesity contest. I am a formerly grossly-overweight person (I am 6'4" and was as high as 245 - I am around 190 now), and there is just nothing positive about that lifestyle.

No it isnt a fun lifestyle but hey I am not going to go around bitching and moaning about it. FYI once I get my license the first thing I plan to do is get a membership at the ymca or a gym or something and finally get into shape. So untill then KISS MY FAT BLACK ASS!

I'm just waiting for the uber parody thread of some guy who claims to be 5'2" and weigh 650lbs. They'll probably say something like I just ate a 25lb bag of m&m's and my arm hurts or something. :p

Bradycardia, or just a low heart rate?
Atropine and Epinephrine are two code drugs to raise heart rate, but I doubt they would ever use them in your situation. Rythmol is used to return the heart rate to normal, but it's an antiarrhythmic drug.
