Hi, I am 18 years old, weighing 135-140lbs. I was born with a hole in my heart but it grew over before I was two. I have recently been to the hospital 3 times in the past two months for a reaccuring rash, medication for my ( what I think are impacted) wisdom teeth, and just today for a bladder infection. I have started drinking coffee for the first time around the start of may which is when I had medication for my teeth. I was wondering if it was the coffee or the medication, but I m having chest pains in the middle and left side of my chest. It feels like a fluttering then sharp shooting pain. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks Katie.

I have a 12yr old boy, that for the past 18 months has suffered from a stabbing/gripping chest pain. He is rather tall and slim, and the GP put it down to growing pains, these attacks would be about once every two weeks. But now he is getting the more frequent and occurring pain and although it still only last a minute or so, it has gone from bearable to being really painfull and very stressful for him. Please advise

Hi i am an 18 year old female, 5 feet five inches tall, weighing about 154 pounds. I have had chest pain for five months. Went to the doctor a couple times and had on EKG done, everything was normal and she said that it was costochoncodritis. But it never went away. Now it also hurts my back if i sit in one position for too long. One other thing I should mention... before the chest pains started happening i had a foot infection and then my entire left leg went numb for a bit during class one day. I don t know what it is and am really worried that it might be something serious

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I used to be a body builder and took some steroids. I have had 2 heart attacks and a quadruple bypass, and still get very out of breath. I am overweight now with not being able to exercise! but the main problem is I think i do not produce enough testosterone, and to much estrogen as my man boobs are really large in comparison with my body. I am on lots of heart tablets, and type 2 diabetic also. Can you help?

I live in a cigarette smoking building--I am very allergic to it or sensitive--my heart jumps in my chest at times, then beats up to 120 beats a minute. I'm trying to move, but it's very expensive and I dont have a job. My grandfather died of a heart attack at 78-he was a chain smoker, so not a lot of heart disease on my mom's side. I didnt know my fathers side of the family. Actually my uncle died of a massasive heart attack at 48--Im 47--that was on my mom's side.
