Can you have a heart attack at the age of 30 ?

Can you have a heart attack at the age of 30? Since late last night, I have had really strange gripping pain in the middle upper chest (right under the collar bones and sternum) and across my upper ribs through my back. It feels like a vise around my upper torso . I can t get a deep breath . My right hand keeps feeling tingly. Is there anything else that can explain symptoms like this? I am not on any medicine and was not doing anything strenuous. The pain has remained nearly constant since about 9pm last night. I did call my doctor, she seemed to dismiss my symptoms because of my age and I have normally quite low blood pressure . I feel like she is not taking me seriously. However, she advised me to go to the ER if I was really worried.

My husband survived the widow maker three years ago (age 49). He is very high strung, has anxiety and chest pain and is beginning to eat poorly. His pressure is up and cholesterol up by about 30 pts. He cannot seem to control his temper. I am afraid he is setting himself up for another heart attack. I guess my question is do you think there is any correlation to the heart attack and the personality change?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
