What causes burning sensation in heart?

My 15 year old daughter says that her heart hurts. She said it feels like someone is socking her in the chest repeatedly. She says that it hurts worse when she takes a deep breath. Should I be concerned? take her to the doctor? or is it maybe heartburn?

Welcome to hcm,
If your daughter has other symptoms of heart burn like regurgitation, bloating of abdomen, vomiting etc then her symptoms could be of heart burn.If she is having chest pain, sweating, palpitations then better consult a doctor to rule out any underlying disorder.

Thank you
