See your doctor! 2 years ago, I was convinced I was on the verge of a heart attack. I was experiencing pains, sharp and dull, in the same area. I had a stress test and all the blood work only to find out everything was normal with my heart. After further evaluation I was diagnosed with acid-reflux. With proper mantainece medication I have been pain free. I'm not trying to diagnose you, only letting you know that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck doesn't mean it's a duck. LOL. See your doctor.

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.
