Having chest pains. What could be the reason, relief treatment?

I ve been having chest pains this year that I ve never had before this I m usually athletic but I have been get unhealthy since school and I m seventeen. I tend to bend over and lift something and then my chest hurts and then I crack my neck which sort Of makes it better but still not gone. I also get it when I wake up from my sleep, the way the I think of it is that the chest cage area pushes against each other this is what it feels like. This could just be because I m unhealthy at the moment but I want to check just if I can do anything to get rid of it.

Hi there,

Chest pain could be a sign of anxiety. Probably you have certain issues or feel stressed out about something which might be causing anxiety and thereby chest pain. I hope you don't have any breathlessness or palpitaions. I would suggest that you visit a doctor and get certain investigations done like a complete blood picture, Vitamin B12 levels, thyroid function test , ECG and a Chest X - Ray to rule out other causes of chest pain.

In the event that everything comes back as normal, the chest pain might be a sign of anxiety. Sign up for yoga / relaxation classes. Meanwhile eat healthy .

Hope this helps.
