Well I don't see how the news is heart breaking.. Probably a bad pun. But he's right it could've actually been a heart attack. At least it's just a broken nose, even though those things hurt like crazy.

Well at least you were already at the hospital. You could have passed out at home or wherever. Good thing it's just a broken nose and not heart attack.

I am ok but in a lot of pain. They operated on my nose and I'm now swollen and bruised. As for why I was standing...after waiting for 30 Minutes they called me back and as I was getting out of the chair, instead of standing, I fell forward landing face down. Turns out, I have pneumonia, so the chest pain was from infection, and they believe I passed out because my oxygen level was too low. Thank you for your concern!

OP had chest pain so he/she went to the hospital to get it checked out. (s)he fell to the ground and broke his/her nose because She/he thought he/she was having a heart attack.

I just don't understand why one would pass out just at the thought of a heart attack. Seems to me like the chest pain may have actually had a cause.

46, severe stress can sometimes cause pain that somewhat resembles a heart attack. The increasing stress/fear of suffering a heart attack can also cause a person to just collapse. I've seen it happen before.

Although breaking your nose must be painful, just be grateful that you're not suffering any heart conditions and that you're alive :) you were lucky I think!

I'm sure being at the hospital already was lucky enough. But the whole no heart conditions is a big hearty plus.

This is exactly why you should always wear protective face gear, no matter what the social situation. I hear the Jason Voorhees Face Helmet® is a reliable brand. Sitting in hospital, playing extreme checkers at the Seniors Club, going on wild murdering sprees... Safety first, OP.

chest pain is actually a legitimate emergency. if you go to the ER with chest pain, they have you in the back almost immediately. a broken arm isn't an emergency, no matter how bad it hurts, unless bone is protruding or it's bleeding.
