Read the wiki - precordial catch isn't a cardiac thing. They think the pain originates from the parietal pleura of the lungs...which makes perfect sense (in relation to my symptoms at any rate), heh.
edit: sucks you've got an arrhythmia though - I have a friend with an issue and the docs just can't seem to help her. She even had a Holter monitor for 72 hours and it didn't catch anything. What a pain.
Yeah, I read it, I was just getting at the fact that I've been complaining about pain in that region (the same shit you have) for a while, but no one ever thought of or mentioned precordial catch, and I'm guessing it's because I have arrythmia and they assumed it was heart related. Though one person once told me I had enflamed ribs or something like that and that I needed to take ibuprofen every day lol
Meh, yeah, I'm kinda used to it by now. Bothers me every once in a while, and I certainly hope that it won't kill me, but nothing I can really do about it =/
