Tight left hand side of chest....

hi I am after a bit of advice, I was going to post this a few days ago but didnt as I thought it is just stress

Any of you heard of that stuff, mephedrone? the legal high, a bit like coke and mdma, well its really good **** when your on it, and dosnt have much of a comedown, and ive used about 30-40g over the last few months, maybe slightly more. NOw yes I know what your thinking, thats not a good idea! dont touch it again etc etc and I probably wont, but heere is what I am wondering about.
In the last 2 weeks, ive been having a really tight chest, like a stitch over my left side of my chest. I put it down to a stitch and anxiety, but up until a month ago I'd been running 4-5 miles 3 times a week, for a few years now, but for 2 weeks in the last month, which ended a fortnight ago, I was tanning that mephedrone ****, dailly, and it caused me alot of vascoconstriculation on some days, i couldnt see the blood vessells in my arms or legs...
I've also been stressed, due to a misunderstanding I had with a few collegues in work, but thats not an issue now, but it did cause me quite a bit of anxiety until it was sorted out a few days ago. so it could be that....
Anway, I feel "stitchy" in my chest, and my chest tightens, and I get panicky my hearts playing up. The last 2 runs ive been on, for the first half of it, when I'm building up to a "steady pace", my stitch feeling is there big time and I stop an walk for a few hundred metres when I felt it and then it calms down and I go on I can complete the run like normal without adverse effects, maybe its undigested food, **** knos, but it didnt happen like that. maybeits because I've not been running and I've lost a bit of muscle due to my "habits" and my body recovering from using the mephedrone.
On tuesday night, I got that stitch, and I felt dizzy, my chest, from my neck down the middle of my V bone on my collar down to the bottom of my ribs felt tight, got a bit panicky at the time and phoned up my mum who wanted to take me to A andE but I had work next day so didnt want to go and was bitembarrassed as I do think its likely to be stress
But reading osagis post, and I've read other posters here with heart trouble.... do these symptoms sound like my heart could be ****ed or am I just being a para worrier

    Jesus man, if you're looking for people to make you feel better then you're in the wrong place.

    Get down A&E and get it checked, if you go in complaining of chest pains and breathing difficulties they'll see you right away so go now.

    Prob anxiety related but anxiety can trigger a heart attack.

    well if you reckon so? I really dont want to go to A&E about this, I do want to get it checked though, just not A&E... I guess that might be the only option though, thing is aswell im only 23 which makes it even more unlikely, I wouldnt say I have breathing difficulties either, i get a tight feeling, and its the fact my right chest isnt uncomfortable ever, its my left chest allways, has been for several days, sometimes I get a bit dizzy, but im not sure if thats due to getting panicky or a different issue in itselfe

    Good advice, get it checked ASAP.

    Even if there is no medical issue, it will help to alleviate some of the anxiety you're experiencing.

    You wont be the first drug taking 23 year old to die from a heart attack, so go.

    His death would however still be a rarity.  Particularly since he isn't ingesting it now.

    And your point is?
     
    Yes do what Yohimbe says, this is the man that regularly speaks of topping himself without irony after all.
     
    You are of course free to wallow in your own misery as much as you want but what I dont get about you is your incessant desire to drag others down with you.
     
    The man is complaining of symptoms that indicate either serious anxiety or possible heart problems, what would you have him do, ignore it?
     
    At least then if he dropped down dead you'd have another subject to make a crass joke about.

    reborn just sayin say thanks mate, I'm going to book a doctors appointment on monday and get this checked out, cos I am a bit worried by it in all onesty man, I was feeling it today again which is why I posted cos I am para about it if I'm honest, I've never had these type of pains ever before, and theyve been dailly for the last week, I think it is para, and I wont go to A & E for this cos my ego is holding me back in life in every sense
    Whats funny is, I had "major" surgery on my kidneys several years ago and the right kidney, which is the one that was ****ed (by a football playing injury when I was 15, cos of a rio ferdinand style tackle against a wooden bench in indoor football) is also sore, i can feel it at the back of my back on the upper back at the back lol, not really funny i suppose when its my life at stake, anyway im going to get it checked out when i can get an appointment, really do cringe at going to A&E about my symptoms, bit embarrassed about the anxiety, ive babbled on but aye cheers anyway il get an appointment for it, think itl do me good
    yohimbe does sound like a wanker in alot of posts, but the when you examine the facts with eagle eyes, the truth is never "nice"
    bla bla cheers anyway man

    Definitely the smart move. Sounds like even if it's just an anxiety thing then going to get yourself checked out will clear up any doubt.

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak
