    chest pain morning

    Occasionally in last several years i'm awakened in early morning by dull chest pain, in middle of my chest. It doesn't extend to my arms.

Does this possess any threat on future....

    Heart palpitations and air burping

So he says I may have some kind of heart thing where it skips a beat or whatever, can't recall the name (right?) but he said probably nothing to worry about but I can do an echo if I want. He said it would probably just make me....

I know I need them but is there anyway around this ?
