Can I have heart disease at the age of 13 ?

Im 13 and I want to know if I have heart disease . I already been to the docter,but I just need my blood test . Sometimes when I breath my heart or chest hurt a little bit, I have shortness of breath sometimes, my neck has this sharp pains and my back/shoulders hurt sometimes. About 3 days ago I was eating and my rubcage starting hurting, arm, shoulder. I am really scared. I dont get dizzy, and I don t faint, but I do go to the bathroom a lot.

Hi Nit,

WELCOME TO HCM.
From the symptoms that you mention, it is unlikely that you have a heart disease. Since you have consulted a doctor and he did not say that you have a heart disease, then you can rest assured that you have a healthy heart.
If you still suspect that you may be having heart disease, then you should consult a cardiologist, get a echocardiography done, which will clear your doubts completely.
Wish you all the best.
