You definitely are having anxiety attacks. I have pains in my chest also because of the amount of anxiety in me. I love to take baths, eat ice cream, and skip a day of school for "mental healing". 40 minutes from the nearest hospital is kind of bad, if you are feeling like you are going to suffer bad you need to head there soon. Good luck and take it easy! :)

my 22 yr. old son has been experiencing high blood pressure which according to charts he is in stage 1 hypertension. The latest reading was 151 over 93. The last 2 weeks he s experienced something not right in his upper left shoulder/chest area. (uncomfortable or light pain) He did see his doctor (a family physician) and had a EKG done. His doctor stated that he has some constriction going on therefore the blood flows back. she put him on some blood pressure pills (I don t recall the name) to calm the vessels. Our history is as follows: His great grandfather died of a heart attack at age 49, his great uncle who was in his sixties died of a heart attack, his grandmother had Chronic kidney disease in her fifties (she had to go on dialyis) and she did have a stroke. I am the mother and also have Kidney disease like my mother. I am concerned about my son. My son has to go back in two weeks to have some blood work done. I m just wondering if this is enough testing. Could there be a blockage? Should he see a cardiologist?
