FromS-T ToShiningS-T: You need to discuss this in detail with your doctor. If you've had these EKG changes before then it's a moot point.

I was having chest pains and shortness of breath usualy when active. After it stoped the left side of my head started hurting. I am 7months pregnant?

I would take it: Easy...If it continues speak to your obgyn. The biggest concern would be with headaches is whether or not your blood pressure is normal. Not unusual for women to get winded later in pregnancy becuase the pregnant uterus prevents the diaphgragm from allowing you to take a full breath. Also make sure you are staying hydrated. ...Read more
