i am 15 year old girl, i weigh 115 lbs and am in the normal range for my BMI (Body Mass Indicator) i am skinny, but ive never really eaten healthy. i am like, junk food/snack every hour and like always eating junk food, but i was on the plane a couple days ago, and all of a sudden, m heart started pounding really hard for absolutly no reason, and it was like...squeesing me, and it hurt really, really bad. my jaw also had very sharp pain on the left sdie only, near my cheekbone, it was very intense and very painful. it lasted for a few minutes (the jaw pain i mean, the heart sqeeszing had stopped) then was gone. i was thinking about it a couple minutes ago and i looked up the symptoms and found the very same things i had. its about midnight so i cant really tel anyone until about 5PM tomorrow.
so can a teenager like me have a serious heart attack?? and did i actually have one??
alright to answer questions: i have never had a panic attack and am not clstrophobic; i feel totally at home on a plane; but my mom has panic attacks when the plane ride gets bumpy, but i tend to like the bumpyness soo...
no, we were on a plane, and it was a five hour flight and it was forgotten about, so no, i was never taken for a checkup on this or to the hospital
and no, no drugs or diet pills or anything of the sort. this was also the fisrt time i have expirenced any of this.
the only meds i was ever on as far as i can remember ever was a pill to treat my toenails, and ive just recently stopped them.
