20 year old with chest pain. What could be the reason ?

I am 20 years old 170 pounds 6 3 Don t eat as much as i would like too, I smoke cigarettes, i drink alcohol in moderation, loads of coffee due to being a security guard I work 4 shifts wed thurs Night shift, Weekends sat sun day shift so i constantly have to transition I have chest pain right over my heart right now, my left arm also feels very weird Is this fatigue, too much coffee? to much smoking...? What steps do i take, this feeling has been around for the last 3 days, on and off. Today it has been ongoing for the last 2 hours, the most its ever lasted so far also can i walk into a hospital complaining of heart pains and get an EKG? Oh, and my left eye recently started twitching randomly, I was told it is either a calcium def or fatigue...which is it and is it connected with the above problem? I appreciate any answers...as short or as long. Thank you another thing i wanted to add, I am an excessive sweater..But only on my hands and feet these last 3 days I only sweat during this chest episode, just another weird thing..

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

The above symptoms suggestive of Oesophagitis (inflammation of esophagus) ... that pain is felt as chest pain... excess of coffee& smoking and drinking will lead gastritis and esophagitis... First you must stop smoking& drinking.. avoid too much of coffee.. avoid spicy foods, good sleep, will reduce the symptoms.. twitch of left eyes is due to calcium deficiency... calcium tablets may be helpful..

I am 16 years old and it has been about 2 years or more since I have a short breath. I always feel like I don t get enough oxygen in my lungs when I am breathing. Therefore, I have to take a very deep breath every time i breath and sometimes I have to do it over and over again. I also get tired very easily. Although I only do a little bit of work or exercise, I can lose my breath easily. And it ends up making me inhale and exhale in a fast timing (if you know what I mean). Sometimes my chest can feels hurt a little but it s rarely happen so I never talk about it. I went to a heart doctor and he said it was perfectly fine and he said I don t have asthma. So what could it be?

I have had episodes of severe chest pain, radiating to my left shoulder and jaw, I break out in a cold sweat, feel as though I am going to pass out, and I can feel my heartbeat increase. It happens randomly, and never during any type of exertion. This has been going on for about 2 years, and was happening occasionally (once every few/several months), but I have had 3 episodes in the past 8 weeks. I am a 40yr old woman, and there is a strong history of heart problems on my dad s side of the family. Even though it s terrifying when it happens, I hadn t really taken it seriously because the pain seems to subside briefly if I drink cold water. The pain is nothing close to indigestion/heartburn, etc. (I have had that in the past). I assumed if it was a heart attack, the pain wouldn t go away. The episodes last anywhere from a few minutes to 15-20 minutes. I do have an appointment with a cardiologist in 2 weeks, but after researching on the internet, I m much more concerned now. Any ideas what this could be? If it happens again before my appointment, should I go to the ER?
