hello my daughter is complaining of chest pain after carrying a cooler for about 2 miles on the 4th. She is not complaining of shortness of breath or anything and she also says that the pain in persistent and doesn t ease up. Could this be from using her muscles that she normally doesn t use? She is only 15 and she has large breast as well. I just wanted to know if this was a reason to take her to a medical center or anything or could we just wait it out ?
