Anybody out there able to give me any hints about what discomfort over the heart might be caused by?
I'm used to pleuritic type stabs through the heart during episodes of severe chest pain but the last few months my chest has been the least of my problems and relatively pain free compared to usual. I just have this constant heaviness over my heart area (I'd call it discomfort, not pain) and some slight tugging pains with some movements. Very tired, too, but this could be an accompaniment to other newer symptoms.
Funny, I don't worry about my heart when I have severe chest pain - just put it down to a side effect of inflammation. But now when the chest pain is absent and my heart is making its presence felt, it's playing on my mind. No palpitations, or anything, just a heavy, uncomfortable, ever-present ache. Anyone else have this?
