Suffering from heart pain. Taken menactra shots. Heart veins popped during childhood. Treatment?

My heart hurts the day after I got my menactra shots (I got 3 shots one on the forearm and 2 on my shoulder ). My heart hasn t hurt in years but today out of nowhere a sharp pain it happened two or three times today (I case you are wondering i m 18 and when I was baby or a child I had a high fever and one of my heart veins pop and I have been supposed to take antibiotics until I am 18 or 21 but I have not been taking them for 6 or 7 years).

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     It may not be a ‘heart’ pain – pain from the heart is oppressing, in central chest (and left), worse on effort, relieved by rest, may radiate to shoulders and arms, associated with sweating and so on. You have not even said which location!
     There is an old expression, “Post hoc ergo propter hoc”, meaning ‘after this, therefore because of this’ / It is natural human tendency to associate things with the immediate past - which is always not true
     It is probably not related to the ‘shot’
     As a baby, the problem was probably a valve, not vein – Rheumatic Fever?
The limited information provided is not sufficient enough to arrive at further conclusion... The wise option is to get yourself examined

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
