Heart attack or trapped wind...don't laugh i could be dying - 02-02-06, 01:19 PM

I know this isn't the most pleasent of topics but does anyone suffer from trapped wind?

It started at 4pm yesterday when i was with a client, i felt a sudden pain in my chest and although it eased a little it was very uncomfortable. Luckily she was my only client of the day so when finished came straight home

I woke up at 2am last night with such terrible chest pains again, i thought i was having a heart attack...lol, and wondered if this could be a symptom of trapped wind. I came down stairs and took two painkillers which eased it but i can still feel it this morning. I'm working later on and don't fancy sitting there if i'm gonna have a heart attack...lol
Can't get an appointment with the doctor, the receptionist said i should have called at 8am this morning for appointments so will have to call 2morrow morning now

Does anyone suffer from this and what helps?

Could you try phoning NHS Direct? Sometimes we can worry ourselves into making our symptoms worse so try and relax hun. Take care and hope is goes asap.

NHS direct, have phoned them before for my son and they were very good. but i would feel embarrased if they said it was trapped wind and i thought i was having a heart attack. Mind you don't get me wrong i would prefer the trapped wind...lol. I cant take a deep breath in without it hurting...i think i'm stressed

Debbie,

Why don't you call your doctor again and insist on an emergency appointment if you are really worried about this.

I often get chest pains some worse thatn others and iv'e been sent for scans before and everything was clear. Its just that last night was pretty bad and with it lasting so long, i don't like to think i'm bothering the doctors if it IS rapped wind.

I'm gonna call NHS direct.

***TMI alert***

It definitely sounds like trapped wind to me.

I had it really badly when I was about 15, I was in absolute agony, and was convinced I was dying. My Mum got the Doctor to come out as an emergency call, when he came I was laying on the sofa in tears because of the pain... I was convinced one of my internal organs had exploded (drama queen - moi?)

The doctor laid his hands on my stomach and gently manipulated it to see if he could feel anything wrong...

...and I let off the most enormous fart! x a million! I was mortified! But of course, glad that it was only wind and there wasn't anything seriously wrong...

I don't know if Rennies work but I've used Windcheaters and Windeeze capsules in the past and they both work fine...

Hope you get rid of it soon - I know how horrid it is so you have my full sympathy!

if you were having a heart attack then you would probably have symptoms of short breath and also a tingly feeling in your left arm (as this where the blood supply gets cut off first) (altho these symptoms do not always come together). i think hun you will most probably find it is heart burn which can be so severe that some people think they are having a heart attack (my dad thought he had heart problems once and it turned out to be heart burn). this is caused by acid in your stomach coming up your pipe and it causes pain in an adjacent place in the pipe as your heart is... hence why you think its your heart. (you have a little flap at the top of your stomach to prevent this and its probably not closed properly). trapped wind usually causes stomach ache and the pain is lower down in your abdomen.

try taking some gaviscon liquid or gaviscon tablets. (think liquid is the best) which neutralises the acid and hence relieves the pain. if the pain doesn't go away, then consult your doc.
