Reflux: R u sure the anemia isn't from your GI system? Go to store and get omeprazole, use 40 mg per day until u get back in 2 see doc. If can't afford that ranitidine at 150-300 mg, reflux and or ulcer likely involved. If u r taking a bunch of aleve or ibuprofin, change to tylenol (acetaminophen). I think it would help, chest pain likely not cardiac but if u smoke, family mem. Died early from mi, htn, diab, chance hrt.

What is Cause: Are these pains activity related? Overuse injuries, improper shoe wear, sudden increase training, running on hard surfaces, etc could cause leg pain. It could something as simple as being dehydrated. The wrong footwear could affect the alignment of your foot or ankle and should be evaluated. Check magnesium and consider bone scan for stress fracture. Compartment testing for recurrent symptoms.

Hello. : Hello. I don't know what your pain represents. I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. You asked specifically about symptoms in women. The following statistics are from a national institute of health study . 43% of women had no chest pain. 58% were short of breath; 55% had marked weakness; 43% experienced fatigue, with cold sweats in 39% & dizziness in 39%. According to the study preceding their heart attacks women experienced the following symptoms: unusual fatigue - 70%; sleep disturbance - 48%; shortness of breath - 42%; indigestion - 39% and anxiety - 35%. Whenever int doubt it is best to take the cautious road. Jaw pain in a woman with diabetes and high blood pressure is of concern.
