... I can say that lately I've been having annoying chest pains and .aches, and I generally don't feel great.
But, the chest pains are getting a bit harder to hide, because they come at random times...
... but I always hold back from doing much, because moving around too much always either provokes a .ache or more chest pains.
But, the chest pains are getting a bit harder to hide, because they come at random times... they came at my cousin's birthday party yesterday, but no one noticed, thankfully.
You can be over weight and fit, or you can be skinny as a rake and unhealthy.
That kid just looks like a normal kid to me.. both images. I hope the latter one is because he's finding a more balanced life rather than because he rekons now he's gonna score loads of sheilas..
Fasting is not being healthy, and not good for your body.
You need to eat man, just don't eat crap.
Step 1 - Seek professional medical advice in the first instance.
Hmm, I've been having similar symptoms lately as well. I know it's all related to the heart. I got off fast food and sodas a lonnnng time ago though. Unfortunately I was raised on the stuff as a kid. Now I only have a soda or a fast food maybe once or twice a month...and I usually regret that I did because it tastes like you know what.
yea I would like to point out if you care about your family you would tell them. keeping it secret isn't going to help. seek proper medical attention, as in go to the er. who cares if you can't pay you got perfect credit or something? man america is a crap country where we can pass universal healthcare, and never even one person gets assistance. what kind of politicians do you think you are, scum of the earth if you ask me.
Could be as simple as heartburn...first time I had it, I was convinced I was having heart issues...
Have you checked to see if there are any state benefits that may cover some medical?
I think you need to check your pulse when your chest pain occurs. Use your index finger and middle finger and place them to the inside of your wrist under the bend on the thumb side. Find it and count how many beats while looking at a clock or watch with a second hand for one full minute. Feel if the rhythm is normal......if it goes fast, then slow , or fast fast skip slow slow slow for example, you may be having Dysrhythmia. Normal heart rate is between 60-100. If it is not in that range, then you could have a cardiac problem. Check your blood pressure if you can.
I know the fear of being a prepper and having a health problem. It is scary. Always know that you can show up to an emergency room and tell them you have chest pains and there is one simple blood test to show if you have had or in the process of having a heart attack. Also they can check your cardiac rhythm and see if there is a problem. They may keep you in observation for a little while if everything appears normal. If not then they will send you in to have a cardiac catheterization, which will show them if you have a clogged artery. If so they may want to place a stent in the artery. If you go in through the ER, you do not have to pay out of pocket, but will get a bill. Even if you pay $1 a month, at least you can be seen and taken care of. A hospital ER cannot kick you out if you do not have the ability to pay.
