I get sharp pains in my chest

Sometimes after I eat certain foods I ll get jolted with sharp pains. They seem to run from my chest to my upper arms. They pain is on the same rhythm with my heart beats. It also seems to happen after fatty foods. The latest one happened with an avacado and lasted for like 45 seconds. Any ideas?

I just recently have been having a weird feeling in my chest. Every time I swallow regardless of what it is, I have a weird feeling in my chest, it is kind of a sharp pain. I don t know what it is.

I ve noticed just today while I was at work I had some sharp pains around my heart, and I had to stop and regain my composure for a minute before I was ok again. And just now while I was working out, I noticed some slight sharp pains around my heart as I was exercising. I have been exercising frequently recently, and my chest has quickly become much broader than it once was (that might be a potential factor), I am 17 by the way. I actually eat fairly healthy, I try to avoid fatty foods and normally eat organic things. (Though the past couple of days I have pigged out on candy, pizza, cheezeburgers, and ice cream, but only for my birthday, that is unusual for me) and I am in excellent shape. What might be causing this? Could a short relapse in my healthy eating maybe cause this sharp pains?

Skeletal chest pain left side, had for aroud 18 months, 22nd October 2010 had PFO closure so I know my heart is all OK, no more mild strokes. I get sharp pains to the bottom side and top of my chest, sharp twinges then release. The pain is like a burning pain that can grind away for hours, sometime pain killers will give me relief, sometimes no. When I am sitting and slightly leaning forward is when I at my worst or trying to complete some physical work. Have been told it is skeletal or nerevs caught in my rib cage casuing the problem. Your thoughts thanks David

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
