Unfortunately I've been having chest pain since the past few days so took a trade, thought it would not be wise to ride the market today and hence exited. Few pips to show for it; going to take it easy for some time:

Depending on your age, I strongly encourage you to visit a doctor if you haven't already done so

You're still doing well. But yes, you should take care of yourself.

With chest pains, no matter what your health or age status, I think you need to get a medical opinion. Hopefully it's just something like indigestion, but if it isn't, you may not get a warning before something major happens.

My non-medical, basically uninformed opinion....

Thanks @Sazon and @bobwest.

Heart disease is believed to be hereditary and my father is a heart patient (who has successfully reversed a lot of it by lot of proper exercise and Dean Ornish stuff).

Though I try to keep my healthy habits on, the last two years, however have been trading trading trading. I breathe trading whenever I get time and spend lots of screentime.

I would say TST combines cause a lot of stress, but the stress is actually caused by me. Anxiety runs high during a combine run.


Will get myself checked, though a recent test revealed all parameters within limits - cholesterol (HDL, LDL), triglycerides, stress test, ECG all ok.

@iqgod, definitely go get checked, this is not something to mess with. It could also be stress related so take some time off this weekend away from your trading and screens.

Consider this> Float tanks are incredible stress releasers. No gravitational yanking on the body and you may also find with your mind so free and body vanishing , the " stuff" you truly need to release will present itself.

Sounds like anxiety attacks....still I would see the doc....and take care to keep yourself healthy....and stop living and breathing trading. Trade then go do something else thats not related to trading. Studies have shown that having other interests that capture your attention significantly improve your trading.....be smart, get a life....its not worth your health.....I should know, I'm a heart patient as well.

if it is your heart for whatever reason and you feel your chest get heavy or the pain starts to radiate chew an asprin

By all three measurements, chewed aspirin worked fastest. It needed only five minutes to reduce TxB2 concentrations by 50%; the Alka-Seltzer took almost 8 minutes, and the swallowed tablet took 12 minutes. Similarly, it took 14 minutes for the chewed tablet to produce maximal platelet inhibition; it took Alka-Seltzer 16 minutes and the swallowed tablet 26 minutes. link

but if it were me I'd probably swallow one and chew one.

I'd got hypertension ( mainly cause I'm a sufferer )

Get the heart rate monitor app for your phone, take down measurements just after waking up and various other times of the day, if you start getting spikes where it's 20-30 beats higher for no real reason then good odds that's your issue.

I had a stressful period recently, HR and blood pressure up huge but it's getting back to normal. Friday on the mountain bike, I stopped checked HR and 180 no wonder I felt dizzy, took a break till normal then fine rest of the ride.

Mild Excercise, so walk 30mins or so most days, cut out Caffeine, Sugary drinks ( not completely, lifes to short )

Asprin a day, is likely not a bad idea aswell, only chew if you need a quick hit must taste horrible.

There is supposed to be liquid Asprin out soon, real fast but can't find it anywhere yet.


Reduce your trading aswell, it's not worth your health!
