Anyway, obviously I'm concerned that this may happen to me too so I'm trying to prevent it. I currently walk a minimum os 2 1/2 miles 3 times a week, I'm watching my diet (i.e I don't eat salt and I'm minimizing my saturated fat intake, and I'm even thinking about taking aspirin on a daily basis.
However, for the past few years I've noticed occasional *sharp pains* on the left side of my chest that always goes away when I pass gas. Should I be concerned about this? Is this a sign of an impending heart attack or heart disease? I've asked my Doctor this same question during my last physical a few years ago and he said that it was probably stress related. He listened to my heart rhythm and said that it was normal. He also administered an EKG and the results were negative . . .
