My 5 year old daughter has chest pain, please help her

Hi. My 5yr old daughter just awoke from bed complaining of chest pains. She s commented about these pains before mostly after school. She tells me that her chest hurts after she s been running outside for PE. Today she hasn t done much as far as playing or running goes. What could it be? She has no fever, no cough, she s fine from what I can tell.

hi kirsten0228
welcome to Healthamagic forum
please consult a paediatrician/cardiologist without delay
breathlessness on exertion and chest pain may be indicative of some sort congenital heart disease
till you get consultation from doctor do not allow your daughter to take part any physical activity that cause chest pain and other discomfort
talk to her school also
do not worry she will get effective treatment if any is detected
wishing healthy life for your daughter
