After a couple of hours at work or when I have to exert myself, I get a feeling of pressure in the center of my chest. It's not a pain, really and it does not radiate at all. In fact, I usually find myself thinking something like, "Boy, I can really feel how big my heart has gotten!" I was diagnosed with CHF about six weeks ago. Does anyone know what's going on at those times and do I need to go off to the ED? (I don't yet have a regular doctor — but that's another story.) BTW: When I sit down and rest, the sensation goes away in — literally — a few minutes.
