Sometimes after eating some type of foods. Sometimes out of nowhere. Sometimes never. But you should make sure you are not however suffering from some kind of real heart issue. Get checked out. Cocomadol as u may be aware of is addictive. If u don’t really need it for a real medical reason. Hey … may be time to give it up!

    This seems to be a side effect of using the drug for so long. It causes changes in cardiovascular and respiratory systems causing tight chest pains.
