I get checked out regularly by my cardiologist not because he asks to go is mainly because I suffer fro heart palpitations and I worry so I go once a year for him to run tests. I get my blood checked out every six months and everything seems fine and cholesterol under control, thanks to exercise I do 30 to 45 minutes aerobics and an 90 minutes fast walk 5 times a week, I have a predisposition to cholesterol as is heredatary and my mother has it. So I have exercise regularly about 12 years.
I am 44 years old weight 74Kg and messure 1'65. I am a general anxiety sufferer too but is under control.
The other day I was mid workout and felt a pain in my neck in the hollow area which is call suprasternal notch. I panic straight away and took my blood pressure which was 149/89 and pulsations 129. The pain only lasted 3 minutes or so, and I continued my workout but not as strenously and I was fine afterwards. Now searching the
Pain in the neck area could generally be divided into muscular problems and spine issues.Problems in the neck muscles could be related to a sprained muscle, which often results from sudden movements, incorrect postures, etc.In the spine could be related to problems in the bones of the spine which are called vertebra, most commonly arthritis.spondylitis etc.
The possibility of a sudden jerk due to work out can be a possibility in your case.According to the description it does not seem to be due to angina as it usually presents with heart pain which may be radiated to shoulder or arm.Along with that other symptoms as dizziness,sweats,palpitation,fatigue might be present.
Relax yourself as the previous tests were normal and you have been following a proper lifestyle also.If at any point of time the pain arises again or there is development of any unusual symptom then consider visiting a Physician for evaluation.
I've had the same pain in that area when I weightlift. My doctor told me almost the same as above, but also could be esophogeal spasm if you have GERD or Acid reflux. Likely not heart-related because of location.
