Before I get started I do not feel I have any reason to belive my shest pain is cardiac related. I have had multiple EKG's, Stress Echo, Blood tests and all have come back just fine. My blood pressure is perfect, my cholesteral is at perfect levels as well, I have had a few chest X-rays and I am told all that is visiable is asthma, and I have no family history of heart diease...I did smoke for 12 years though I quit a year an a half ago when my asthma came back. So that's good. I also do have issues with GERD, but I know the difference between heartburn and this.
Now my problem is my real only symptom of asthma are chest tightness, pain and shortness of breath. I never cough or wheeze like when I was a kid.
Sometimes it's just chest pain all day long. I may have one to two attacks a year where I cough and wheeze, but a few extra puffs of albuteral and some relaxing has done the trick so far.
I am scared that pain usually means something is wrong. Sometime it's tightness and congestion and other times it's just sharp pains in my chest all day and maybe for days at a time.
Thanks for any advice. I am new to learning about asthma.
