It is possible and you should have it checked out asap, meaning NOW, or at least within 24 hours. You could be suffering from a bunch of mini attacks. Your young age makes matters worse because infarctions for people under 40 are usually fatal. So, get it checked beforre it becomes an issue!

Ok..For about a month and a half i have been experiencing pain in the left side of my chest (localized..somewhat sharp pain). Also pain sometimes down my left arm (sometimes like muscle pain..sometimes like joint pain) and shoulder..I am 23 years old...Don t smoke, don t drink..I have an athletic build...I have had 2EKGs, both normal ( i have an usual BP around 11.5-6 and HR of 54-62) and also I had my heart checked by a cardiologist (the doc said there s no sign of any trouble with my heart). Could it be spine problems? ..or something else? My blood tests were also perfect.

I have discovered yesterday that I am allergic to the generic wellbutrin....hives all over and taking benedryl. That I can deal with, however, I ve had chest pain pretty much nonstop. I have taken antiacids, but they don t help. I am not sure if a heart attack on a female (43) would go on so long. Had nausea as well. I had blood clots in my right lung in 07 that almost killed me. This happened a week after having jaw surgery. I ve was on blood thinners for a little over a year afterwards. How can a female tell the difference between bad indigestion and a heart attack?
