Low blood pressure could in theory cause chest pain due to an inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle (angina) but this would be rare.
A heart attack in a 22 year old would be VERY rare unless it was caused by a clot that occurred as a result of trauma to the heart area (stab wound etc). Heart attacks generally occur in older people who have arteriosclerosis (hardening of the artery walls). Plaque can build up in the arteries over time and break away forming a clot in the artery. This would then block off the blood supply to the heart and result in heart muscle death. Occasionally this can happen to very young people, but it's rare. Other complications are vasculitis and 'bridging' coronary arteries, and other supply and demand issues which are very rare.
Low blood pressure is generally a normal healthy variant. It can sometimes indicate other endocrine and cardiac problems but that's quite rare. Lower than average BP is only ever a problem if its so low that it's unable to push blood around the body sufficiently. If this happened you would be symptomatic with dizziness etc.
I am a 33 yr old female and I swear I have heart issues. I have had so many test done for my heart and everything has come back 100% normal. i have had countless number of EKG s I have a 48 heart montior I had a echo of my heart. my bp is a little high (bottom number in the low 80 s) my cholesterol total is 166. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and my Dr (bless his heart he is awesome) says all the things I feel is related to my panic not heart. Is there really anything else they could do to test my heart or did I pretty get everything? My doc said he wouldn t send me for a cardic cath cuz everything else was fine. Yes I do take meds to my panic attacks.

I m a 24-year-old female. Slightly overweight, haven t smoked a cigarette in 2 years, but use an electronic cigarette. I have been experiencing a pain in my chest since this morning, on my left side. I ve been experiencing a sense of nausea, without actually getting sick, for about an hour. It feels as if it s a hunger pain in my stomach, but I had just eaten. Also, I feel slightly dizzy. I m worried that I might need to go to the hospital, but also feel like I m just being paranoid. What is the likelihood that this is a heart attack? I heard that they can be silent, almost unrecognizable, in women.
