Am I having early signs of a heart attack ?

I am 23 years of age (not overweight ) and I ve been having stabing-like pains on the left side of my chest right under the brest tissue for over a month now. Could that be early signs of a heart attack? or anything related? Keep in mind that i do not have shortness of breath, numbing in the left arm, nausea , headaches, dizziness , confusion or any kind of symptom that comes with a heart attack. I do not have irregular heart beats, but i do get panic attacks... Could it be that im just stressing too much?

What could be some early signs (symptoms) that someone is heading for a heart attack ?

doctor1 MD

Uhh...I had some questions about heart attacks Im a 19 year old female. For about two weeks Ive been pretty worried about a test. I just finished the test though...And dont feel worried anymore. Well I take that back...I DO feel worried. Ive had a strange pain in my left side...Sometimes in the right side.(As of....Yesterday and all through the night on and off).The pain isnt aweful...Just irritating I guess. My stomach is making lots of sounds,My knee feels like it has pressure in it(sometimes),my bottom jaw feels like it has pressure and my tooth hurts(Also sometimes). My period did start earlier that it should have...So I assumed all was due to stress. Could it still be stress? I admit I havent been eating as well lately(junky things)..But now Im trying to drink more water again to get back into my health kick. I dunno...I figured if it was a heart attack it would have hurt worse or Id already be in the hospital...

Hi,I am 23 years old, 6ft'1 and weigh 210 pounds. Two weeks ago, I suddenly became constipated after eatting lunch. In addition, I developed a dull but annoying pain in my lower left abdomen, near my hip. The weird thing is I have bowl movements but not normal ones like I am used too. I have an issue with anxiety and prescribed medication for it. However, I no longer take it, but I do have manageing my stress and anxiety. I saw my doctor yesterday and he said it could be a gi bug and could have developed because of stress.
