Pulsating pain in chest, lack of energy. Notices a small spider vein on leg. Suggestion?

i m a 21 year old female, and for the past few years i have been experiencing sharp chest pains that come and go. The pains come sudden and is usually associated with my heart pounding that last for about 5 to 10 seconds and takes my breath away. The pain that is associated last longer than the heart pounding usally anywhere from 2 min to 10 min. The attacks can happen whether i m resting or doing any kind of physical activity, though I find my self being extremely fatigued almost lifeless. At these times I find myself not being able to do the simplest task due to my lack of energy. I have also started to notice small spider veins starting to appear on my legs, i m not sure if this issure is related or not.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The description does not go with heart pain
Consult a Cardiologist / get examined / get investigated...

     A thorough history and physical examination is the first step -
ECG (Electrocardiogram / EKG) – Routine 12-lead – is part of clinical examination.
     HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) is done to analyse and plan for further management, if a routine ECG does not show.
     ECHOcardiogram is necessary to see the heart valves (Mitral Valve Prolapse) / heart muscle (Cardiomyopathy) and heart function (Ejection fraction, wall motion abnormality) / clots...
      TMT – Treadmill exercise ECG – may be necessary to evaluate ischemia (reduced blood flow / Coronary Artery Disease)

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
