I donated blood yesterday. Then today, I went to my cycling course and had chest pain, shaking, and SOB. I feel fine now but should I get checked out?

GE reflux?: Not sure how you get hunger pains in the chest, but this sounds like pain from gastroesophageal reflux, and should be evaluated and treated by a GP or a GI doctor to sort out what these pains and nausea actually mean for you.

Sounds like you might have atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response, but could also be something much worse. You need to get rate controlled and given your age, I'd say sooner rather than later. ...Read more
