I just turned 26 this week and suddenly I am


Q: I just turned 26 this week and suddenly I am having chest pains after orgasm. I am female, non-smoker, and I haven't drank in at least a month. I've got the implant birth control, but I've had it for almost two years. I am on an anti-depressant (3+yrs) and Omezprole for GERD (4+ mos). It has only happened a few times, but the pain makes it difficult to breath. It feels like a weight is pressing against my sternum and it causes my entire rib cage to feel like it's collapsing in. It's only when I orgasm and lasts for 2-5 minutes where it's difficult to breath.

Symptoms:  Chest pain, difficulty breathing
