Brief Answer:
Possibility is there.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
With history of advancing age and high BP and chest pain and tightness on exertion which radiates to Left arm and jaw, probability of having Coronary Artery Disease is there. You might be having Stable Angina.
I would like to know:
1. When does the pain occurs?
2. How does is get relieved?
3. Any breathlessness on exertion or any breathlessness on lying down position?
4. What are your BP readings?
Revert with these details for a better help.
Stay Healthy.

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
