Welcome to Healthcare Magic forum.

After going through the description provided by you, I am of an impression that it might be a heartburn or any myocardial abnormality as it is been radiating to your left arm. But as you are 16 yrs old, it is rare to see in your age group. It would be also better to rule out any history of injury.

But before going for an examination, I would suggest you to consume cold milk or water to see if the pain reduces or not. If it doesnt reduce it would be better to get examined by a Physician at the earliest. He might ask you to get an ECG and few Blood and Urine tests.

Hope this answers helps you.

Take care.

I had minor food poisoning yesterday: nausea in my stomach , chills, vomited once, had minor diarrhea , headache , dizziness , no fever . I feel better now, but last night i started having chest pains in the middle of my chest, which gets worse when I lay down and take deep breaths. It s not excruciating pain, but it is bothersome. I ve never had food poisoning before, I am 18 years old and I am female. I also hadn t thrown up in about 8 years prior to yesterday. I was just wondering if the chest pains are normal or if I should be worried?

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.
