Last night I was just standing in my bedroom when out of no where the upper left side of my chest started to ache a bit.

Within a couple of minutes, I was curled up in my bed having these horrible sharp chest pains. I tried to pinpoint the pain but couldn't, it wasn't coming from somewhere that could be touched. I've never had a pain like this before. This lasted about 5 minutes then turned into a more pressure-like feeling. It happened once more and returned again to the tight pressure feeling.

My husband thought it could be a muscle spasm, said he has them all the time. Also thought it could be some kind of heartburn (which I have never had before, so I wouldn't know what this feels like, but we had a bland chicken and rice dinner that night). I took some Tums. Nothing helped, and the pressure and pain was there all night, but not nearly as severe as when it began.

I woke up this morning and my chest was still hurting, still is now at 5 pm. It is hard to describe the pain, feels like I am against a wall and someone is pushing and putting constant pressure on where it hurts.

On a side note, I have had a numb leg (from big toe to knee) for almost 6 months now. I don't know if this is related. The pain is located where you put your hand for the Pledge of Allegiance in the USA. If you keep your palm still and move your fingers, it is where my sharp pain was last night. The dull pain is there as well as under the palm.

Any clue? :confused:
