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.

My dad had a kidney removed because of cancer, while recovering in hospital he had a heart attack, they diagnosed him with heart disease and arteriosclerosis. He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting. Today he kind of passed out and twitched a little out of nowhere for a few seconds. What should we do? in regards to diet any home remedies that relieve pain or should we call an ambulance?

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
