I quit smoking on Sunday evening after a 20 a day 14 year habit. Last night (Mon) I went to bed with the most bizarre feeling in my chest. It was like a pulse, not painful but like an extra giant heartbeat that I could feel down the centre of my chest. These increased to about 1 every minute to the point where I could feel them throughout my body. It was a little like a jolt almost like when your just nodding off and your whole body kind of jolts awake.
I was scared out of my wits!!
I have recently had Chest XRays, CT Scan and ECG's for unexplained chest pain which have all come back clear. Also full bloods also showed a clean bill of health. I am however, coughing up (apologies) a brown mucus with flecks in it, alot like I've coughed up before when I've quit smoking. However, when I last quit, the mucus was clear with flecks in.
I'm in a bit of a state about all this now and have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow but just wondered if anyone else could share similar experiences?
