Q.

Chest Pains

I am a 35 yr old woman and have been experiencing sharp chest pains above my left breast for the past 2 weeks now. It was not so bad before but last night it was more painful than usual. I took two asprins (disprin) with water last night to ease the discomfort. At the moment there isnt any pain but i''m sure it will definately come back as I am constantly doing strenous housework and a working mum. I am a bit worried as my dad suffered a heart attack &  past on. I am not diabetic, my cholestrol is normal and do not smoke. I went for an ECG early last year and was told that I have an irregular pulse rate. Can you please help - any home remedies??

This is the paediatric line and you will need to write to our Cyberdoc with this problem.Your chest pain sounds like a stress problem called the Da Costa Syndrome.The pain is not due to a heart problem. It would still be best for you to write to our Cyberdoc on Health24.
