for 2 days now i've been experiencing a throbbing chest pain (i feel it everytime my heart beats) right in the centre of my chest that radiates slightly towards my throat. It's okay if i sit still, breath quietly and don't talk. but as soon as i stand up or walk around or do anything that increases my heart rate, it throbs. It's also painful on deep inspiration.
And it is extremely painful when i lie down such that i can't lie down for more than 5 seconds because my heartbeat and breathing in is so painful. It's a sort of sharp ache, and is much worse today that yesterday. i was hoping it would go away, and i need it to quickly because i have exams in a few days!!
Have been searching on google and there is nothing like this anywhere? has anyone ever experienced this before?
