not all chest pain
eminates from the heart but you are right to be concerned. cardiac pain is usually associated with other symptoms such as breathlessness and cold
sweats. you are very young to have a significant cardiac issue. chest pains of this nature can be due to inflammation or a viral infection that affects the costal cartilages in the front of the chest. these symptoms may be helped by antiinflammatory medication. I would however encourage you to be see and assessed by your family doctor before assuming his is the diagnosis.
