It's probably pleurisy... which is no big deal and quite common. See your doctor for some peace of mind if you are worried about it.

havn t been doing any physical activity for over a year and i ve just gotten back into running. i started with high intensity interval training (run for 30 seconds as hard as possible, then walk for a minute) right away did it for 2 nights like this: 5 min jog 4 mins of HIIT then id mix between walking and running. on the third night i did 5mins jog then 6 mins of HIIT and at the end of the HIIT i experienced pains in my heart area and had a really high heart rate also it felt weird when i took a deep breath but not a normal breath, i started walking and the pain went away, then when i started to jog again the pain came back after a while when my heart rate increased. i dont have a history of anything like this before and neither do any of my family. Am i just starting out too high for this sort of stuff and take it down a noch? btw im 17, 5 11 , and 181lbs.

Actual heart pains caused by acid reflux? Are doctors scamming people? I went in the emergency room today because I ve been having chest pains for the last three days. After tests were done I was told its just acid reflux, but I hardly ever get heartburn. However, after a fatty meal I do get sharp stabbing pains in my heart (left side of chest). How can a doctor equivicate heartburn, which is a burning sensation, with sharp stabbing pains like heart attack symptoms. My left arm has been hurting also. All this and Im only 21. Whats weird is that it has lasted for 3 days. How can acid reflux be causing constant pain for 3 days when I have no symptoms of normal heartburn (i.e. burning sensation)? They did blood tests, the Electrocardiogram, they did chest xray, and ultrasound on my gallbladder and liver. But they didn t find anything abnormal. The pain still persists, when I take a deep breath I get a sharp stabbing pain in my heart. Its as though I have a clogged artery and when my lungs expand with air it puts greater pressure on my heart region causing the pain in the heart. Thanks for the help so far, these answers have been helpful.

I experience extreme pain at night while sleeping when I try to change positions. It hurt worse if I lay on my back. I don t have the pain any other time. I can exercise sit up and I even have to sleep on the couch some nights sitting up with my legs up. I don t feel any pain at this time. I only feel in the bed when I switch from side to side, lay on my stomach and on my back.
