I'm sorry to hear that Thanks. I appreciate that. Can you rate your pain out of 0 through 10 (Clarified to What is your pain rating?.) I'd say maybe a . . . 5? It's just really uncomfortable . . . like there's nothing I can do about it. Right now it's like a zero though. (Clarified to how I would rate my pain.) I'm sorry to hear you have pain Thanks. I appreciate that. Can you point to where the pain is (Clarified to Can you point to where it hurts?.) When the pain happens, I feel it mostly in the middle of my chest, over my heart. (Clarified to point to where it hurts.) When do the pain start I first noticed it earlier this month. I thought it might just be heartburn and it passed after a couple of minutes. What aggravates the pain Well, I think it's when I'm doing something physical most of the time. The first time it happened, my chest started hurting after I was doing some yard work. The second time happened when the elevator broke at work so I had to take the stairs. My o ce is on the 5th floor. What relieves your pain I'm not sure. I think lying still seems to help a little. How long does the pain last When I feel it, it seems to get better over the course of a couple of minutes or so. Can you describe your pain Well, it mostly feels tight and uncomfortable right in the middle of my chest. That must worry you

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
