Last weekend I traveled to Chicago for business and got back home this afternoon. We had a disaster recovery test for one of the divisions of our company. I spent 24 hours in the hospital due to chest pains. They started on Thursday night before I went out of town. It was a sharp pain in my right pectoral. I thought it might have been an after affect of my powerlifting meet. Friday while in Chicago I had another chest pain. It started to concern me, so I took some aspirin in case it was heart related. The next morning I had another chest pain, so I decided I needed to get this checked out. I went to the hospital and they kept me over night for observation. During this time I had three blood tests and three EKG’s. All the tests were negative for a heart attack. My next step is to get a stress test, which I am doing next Monday.
