    Sudden chest pain and headache

    About 4 days after both my babies births (2009 and 2012) my heart rate dropped into the 30's and 40's with no good explanation. No one could give me an answer! I was in the ER both times with a crash cart standing by. I WAS an athlete many years ago, but that wasn't normal for me at all by the time I was having children, but everyone chalked it up to me being an "ex-athlete." I'm concerned now though, because after many years of having no issues, (I'm 37 now, my kids are 6 and 8) I've been having random intense chest pains with simultanious massive headaches. They last for 20-30 minutes and are unbearable and cause trouble being able to breathe

    , but just go away all of a sudden, (sometimes after I get a good burp in) they don't happen for months sometimes. Nothing I can find gives me an explanation and I'm worried that there's something really wrong. Anyone having a similar experience? Please help, I'm worried!!!
