I have been experiencing chest pains. i eat unhealthy

Should I be concerned? Should I go to the emergency room?! Heart attack to come? I m 19, 135 pounds, 6 00 . For the past couple of months or so, I ve been experiencing chest pains now and then. Not all the time but every once and awhile. Tonight it s happening again, started early this evening into tonight. It s like a pressure in the centre of my chest that goes in and out every few minutes. I don t really exercise nor am I active, I m slim and young though. But... I don t eat healthy AT ALL! I primarily eat processed foods. I know, it s bad, don t tell me, that s not what I m asking. --------- I tend to get paranoid about these things though, so I could be overreacting. (Especially since my mother told me that much more young adults are dying because of heart attacks due to diets and ignoring signs because they think they re immune because of their age). Also, when I get paranoid about things like this, it tends to occur more, like a placebo. (Or I think it tends to occur more.) Anyways, I was wondering, should I be concerned tonight? Should I go to the emergency room or something or should I just wait til tomorrow and go to my doctor? It s already 22:30 so the doctors office is closed. Thanks. My doctor has never told me of any heart problems or high blood pressure . Last time I measured it, it was on average. It doesn t hurt right now, it s just pressure, on and off. Also, my right chest is starting to have a little pain in it as we speak. Once again, that could just be because I m overreacting but...

thanks for the query,
it looks like you have gastritis and that is the cause for your symptoms but if you want to get it confirmed you can get an ecg done just in case to rule out any cardiac problems.
take care.

I have been experiencing chest pain in the center of my chest that runs from the front to my back. I am a female in my mid 50 s moderately active and 10-12 lbs overweight. These pains have occurred 3 times in the last week and generally have gone away in under 5 minutes. Tonight s pain is lasting longer. The pain occurs after eating. Is this something that is serious? I do not feel faint or nauseous.

For over one year I have been experiencing periodic pain in my chest immediately after I swallow any type of meat...chicken or red meat. It is very painful...kind of feels like an air bubble is in there. Yesterday I again experienced it after eating a small bite of chicken breast. I became sick to my stomach...felt nausated...starting sweating...felt like I was going to pass out. I m thinking I need to get this problem looked at. What type of doctor should I see?

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
