    Hi all,

    Tuesday night I had to call 111 due to experiencing possibly the most terrifying chest pain I have ever experienced.

    I was laying in bed and felt a pain go across my chest and then centralise right between my breasts.
    I got up to put a maternity bra on thinking it was pain from my ever growing, heavy boobs!

    This didn't cut it and I was sat on the edge of my bed holding my chest and unable to move, and the pain had radiated up into my jaw and right ear, so after about 45 minutes I decided to ring 111 for some advice.

    They sent out the paramedics who decided to take me in for further tests. (I was home alone at the time)

    I was given 4 ECG's (2 in the ambulance/2 in hospital) a chest XRAY, multiple bloods and blood pressure tests but nothing gave a hint as to why I was experiencing the pains.
    One blood test (taken directly from the artery for arterial blood gasses) showed an increase and they said I may have had a panic attack.....

    I may need to have further tests to right off pulmonary embolisms (lung clots)

    Has anyone experienced this before? What were you told it could be?

    Thanks for reading
