Answer:

The differential diagnosis of chest pain is outside the scope of practice of an ob/gyn. It could be possible that you are becoming so anemic at this time that the oxygen carrying capacity of your blood is diminished and causing chest pain from not enough oxygen to your heart. You really need to be seen by your primary care physician.
