This is the key bit, the pain rescinds to a dull ache (but a bad one), doesn't sound too bad? No, you feel sick for hours, can't eat, can't drink, struggle to stand up straight.

I always imagined a heart attack to be like that scene at the end of Dr Zhivago where the hero is running for the tram and BAZOOMBA, he drops down dead.

My experience was not as dramatic. Chest pain like bronchitis and some nausea.

Glad you are well. My uncle had one a few weeks ago and said it was like chronic indigestion - a few stents later inserted in the wrist and he was out 2 days later. Remarkable

I chewed em up and got a cup of coffee and got back on the road, smoked a little weed and it went away.

So I went to the doctor's a few days after I got home and a new doctor was there. A 28 year old chinese girl, she did an EKG on me and my heart was fine, she said it definately wasn't a heart attack. Then she said "now I have to look at your feet" and she gets down with her head between my legs and puts a hand on each foot, after a few awkward minutes I asked her how they were looking and she says "good"..She gets up after a long time and asks me If I like her. I know she asks me this because I previously had told every doctor there that I didn't like them.. We hit it off real good and there were a bunch of messages on my house phone when I got home- I never returned them but she wanted me to come back so I did a few weeks later- She did some blood tests, and we talked for about an hour and then she did the foot thing again, this time longer..For ten minutes, and she says "youre feet look great, really great"..She just touches them for 10 minutes or so..She asks why I didn't return her calls and takes my cell phone number- She starts calling me a few times a week..all the time about the blood tests- every things good but she's a little concerned about this or that..I've been back 4 times this summer and we never talk about anything medical, she always does the foot thing and always asks me if I like her, and tells me I'm her favorite patient. We sit so close when we talk that I think she's about to kiss me. She's practically on my lap. Last week I bought her some paper work for a 3 month paid leave of absence from work and she was more than happy to sign it, she told me to write whatever I want and she'll sign it.....On the way out she asked me If I liked her, and I said "no, I love you".
I'm supposed to see her October 28, but she called today saying she needs to see me sooner. I didn't even ask why- I think its a foot fetish


Best doctor ever!
In an Internet full of the mentally deranged you really are up there as the most mental person I've ever encountered online.

In absolute all seriousness you need help, proper psychiatric help.

If it is bollocks then it's a disaster because the last thing you see will be people laughing at you for believing it.

I have no idea on either of these options, but personal experience of kidney stones was far from fun.

Passed Kidney stone last year and year before, around spring time. Was told by the Emergency room nurse and the resident ER doctor that it is similar in pain to childbirth. It certainly was the most intense gut wrenchy pain I've had soo far; woulda been f$%ked if not for strong dose of painkillers (the maximum dosage allowed by law)
