I had a weird experience last night. I was feeling some chest pressure, that was hurting in my back and shoulders. This pain lasted about 2 hours. I know it was not heartburn, because this was more pressure than pain. Should i be making an appointment with my doctor??

Tenille - Did you see your doctor? What did you find out? Please let us know. Thanks.

Thank you for your question, Tenille. Any sort of chest pain or pressure should certainly be checked by your physician. Heart attack is the number one killer of women and should not be taken lightly.

It may be nothing, maybe mild anxiety, but double checking is always the safety net. Can you please keep us updated?
