  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • My chest begin after walking or cycling at a heart rate of 90-95 bpm for 5 minutes
    and increase in intensity for 10 minutes and a heart rate 100-105. The chest pains
    subside gradually and disappear after 5 more minutes of continued walking or cycling.

    I had the same condition before taking Folic acid and Methotrexate.
