Rushed Into Hospital By Ambulance - Chest Pains!
Thirteen months ago - well, it’s a day I’ll never forget. I was feeling VERY unwell the night before. The feeling I was experiencing in my chest did not feel right at all. It felt really tight and my heart was RACING and SKIPPING heartbeats. I was feeling the wriggling sensations high up in the chest area and presumed that this was causing the skipping heartbeats. I was scared there was a worm near or in my heart. That’s exactly what it felt like. I just hadn’t experienced the pains quite as bad as I did that day. It felt really quite serious and I was scared. I’ve never experienced a feeling like it in my chest before, it’s very hard to describe. My breathing definitely wasn’t right either. I had went back to my doctor a few weeks previous because of the wriggling/skipping heartbeats. It was happening every day, many, many times. Never, on any of my visits to my doctor, did he pick up the skipping heartbeats, it never happened when I was there. It was very frustrating. Palpitations were mentioned but what I was feeling WAS NOT caused by palpitations. I actually felt that because it was so bad I should have been given a heart monitor to wear for a few days to monitor things. But it didn’t happen.
I still experience the wriggling/skipping heartbeats to this day. Some days are worse than others. But on that very day I was taken to hospital I’d never experienced those types of pains before. I don’t care what anyone tells you when it’s your heart YOU KNOW IT’S YOUR HEART, NOTHING CAN MISTAKE IT. The pain was more intense, my breathing was more laboured and my arms felt very strange, almost like someone had cut the circulation off, like tying a rope tight around the top of my arms and stopping the blood flow. That’s what it felt like. The pain in my arms was a very strange pain and it felt really horrible. It was like a dead leg feeling but in my arms.
When I look back, in hindsight, I was very stupid. I should have went straight to Accident and Emergency that night. I thought it would go away and I would feel better. But no, I went to bed instead and thought by the morning I’d feel better. I was also on my own in the house and I didn’t really know what to do.
I got up for work but still felt unwell but not as bad as the night before. I got ready for work but felt quite listful and had no energy in me. As I drove to work I felt the symptoms getting worse, mainly the chest symptoms. My breathing was laboured and my chest didn’t feel right at all, like a heavy feeling and quite tight. I was aware my heart was beating very fast. The strange pain in my arms was getting worse too, the feeling in my arms was terrible. I dread to think what my blood pressure was like! Anyway, I eventually got to my place of work but it became apparent to me that perhaps I should turn around and head back home. I couldn’t work! But I decided to go in to work and get help there.
I met a colleague who knew straight away something was wrong. I could barely walk up the stairs, it was an effort to do so. My manager came to see me and, straight away, she looked at me in shock and knew something was really wrong. She said you need to go to hospital! She could tell by how I looked and the way I was clutching my chest. I said yes, I think it’s my heart, something’s really wrong. She said I can see that by the way you are clutching your chest. You look terrible she said. You’re very pale. You just don’t look right at all she said. She sat me down until a car was arranged to take me to the nearest hospital.
