Chest Pain Dark Stools Shortness of breath 2 weeks ago
Hi, I am Krishna... I had a bad chest pain 2 weeks back, I had mild sweating and shortness of breath. That evening I had dark stools and next couple of days I had mucus with black particles. I was tired as well.. For about a week, I had shortness of breath and intermittent chest pain esp after heavy dinner.. Now after 2 weeks I am much better, no dark stools or black mucus, Im just having a v mild uneasiness in chest esp when I take a deep breath. I would say I am 90% better now compared to 2 weeks back.. I assume I am ok now, But would would like to get your opinion on what caused my chest pain, About 6 months back I was comparatively fit, working out 5 days a week and healthy eating, I recently got married in august 2012 and ever since marriage, I ve been overeating without much physical activity, and I am apparently overweight. I am also not sleeping adequately, sleeping only for 5 hours and the day before I got the chest pain, I slept only at 4:30 AM. Also most of the time when I work from home, I sleep with my belly. My lifestyle is completely changed, would this cause I assumed that my lifestyle changes would have caused the chest pain and other problems... Since I am better now, I feel I dont have any other serious health problems.. I would like to get webmd's opinion on this.. Thank you v much!
