Can I have a Heart attack ?

ok. well to start thinks off i am a 17 year old male i am about 6 1 and i weigh about 180lbs. recently i have been having like a burning sensation in my chest its not bad but it goes away and comes back. i have high anxiety and i stress all the time about everything. i went to the doctor about 4 days ago and they took blood and everything come back normal and he listened to my heart and didn t say anything about it being bad, he said i was a healthy guy. nothing bad runs in my family except high blood pressure but mine is normal. could this be heartburn? stress related? and if something was wrong wouldn t the doctor have said something??? thanks

A heart attack can happen at any age though it is very rare in the young. Your symptoms look like they're caused by acid reflux or heartburn. No huhus, you're fine.
