It appears to be a simple myalgia chest and not a heart problem, provided you do not suffer from a congenital heart or MS. You may please get checked up with your doctor to exclude the same.

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.

I have SVT but my episodes are typically few and short lived. For the past two weeks my heart rate has been fairly consistently over 100 and also raises/drops quickly. (114-90-110...) I have been tired, short of breath and unable to lower my heart rate by myself and make it last for more than a few minutes before it raises again. My fingers are also blueish and swollen around the nails. I am frustrated and not sure what to do. I see a Cardiologist in a week but I haven t been able to sleep much and have been having chest pain and lightheadedness more than I am used to.

Hi, I am a 43 year old female that smokes!!! I have been having a few health problems in the last 2 years. It all started 2 years ago when I got bloodwork done and my Doctor told me my blood sodium level was a point below normal, she told me to drink gatorade to restore my level. Eventually the symptoms associated with low sodium levels went away. Then last year I went to her with similar symptoms and more bloodwork was done, the results were that I had Hypothyroidism and a B12 deficiency, she put me on synthyroid 100mcg and 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 pills. I made her do more bloodwork 3 months later and things were looking up. In May of last year I was feeling lousy and went to the emergency room because I was having palpations and they found my synthroid dose was too high and lowered it to 88mcg, after a while I started feeling better. I told the emergency room doctor about heart problems running in my family so they ordered a stress test which came back good, they told me I wouldn't have a heart attack from blocked arteries. When I told my family doctor (years ago) about the heart problems in my family she told me " you don't need to worry about that because it doesn't affect women until menopause" and wouldn't send me for any tests!!!!!! In December 2013 I began having palpations, so I asked the doctor for more bloodwork and everything came back within normal levels, at that time I showed her that I was having edema in my ankles, she checked my blood pressure which was 117/74, my heart rate was 88, so she sent me for an E.C.G. It supposedly showed that everything was normal except my resting heart rate at that time was 92 b.p.m, so my doctor put me on 150mg of Rythmol 2 x a day. On the 25th of January I called 811 (nurses hotline for health inquiries), they patched me through to 911 who immediately dispatched an ambulance because my symptoms sounded like a heart attack!!! When the paramedics did an E.C.G on me it showed I was in sinus tachycardia and left atrial enlargement, the E.R doctors put in a request for a holter monitor and an echocardiogram. I saw my doctor on the following Monday and she said she "doesn't believe it's my heart" and gave me anti-anxiety meds. With all the things I have just told you what else could it be? Even with the Rythmol I am still having light-headedness, edema, breathlessness, occasional chest pains and fast heart rate; this morning it was 110b.p.m, now though my blood pressure is dropping yesterday it was 107/68. It normally has been pretty close to 120/80. What do you suggest?

I am a fairly healthy 53 year old woman in good health, 5 7 1/2 and 175lbs. . I take daily supplements of Oscal, Synthroid .125, Multi Vitamin, Vitamin E. I moved from Missouri to Ohio 4 months ago and the move has been without major incident. I am used to walking 3 miles about 3x/week without any issues. Just this week, in the last 4 days, I have noticed that when I start the walk, my chest is getting very tight in the very center of my chest and it s somewhat painful. Thursday and Friday, I was able to continue the walk to approx. 2.25miles, but today, within about 100 yards of walking along the river, the vice like pain in my chest came on again, and I have turned around and come home and taken a baby aspirin. I feel better now that I m inside, although I know that I m no longer walking. I have no pain down my arms, I m not dizzy but I ve been tired most of the day with a headache and I can feel sinus pressure. I m not sure if I m now allergic to something outside that I might not have been exposed to before, but I ve lived here for 4 months now and been on walks for at least 2 months here before this. Thoughts?
