Hi sifat
chest pain can have multiple reason. I wish you must have told about the site duration intensity of pain.

squeezing and chest tightness sort of feeling with pain at the left shoulder, arms, neck, jaw can be anginal this case urgent ecg and cardiac enzyme testing has to be done.

a localized pain which increases on deep inspiration, coughing, sneezing etc can be pleuritic pain which needs antibiotic therapy.

pain at anterior chest at costochondral junction may be due to costochondritis.

sometimes acid reflux also causes substernal burning sensation.

other causes can be post traumatic pain.

in yours case, your age doesn't permit for anginal pain until and unless there is some underlying cardiac structural abnormality.

better meet your physician, get examined thoroughly......

the commonest cause of this kind of pain in an age group such as yours is dyspepsia also referred to commonly as a gas problem. You need to be careful with your diet- less spicy food/aerated drinks/ oily food and plenty of water

I am 16 years old and it has been about 2 years or more since I have a short breath. I always feel like I don t get enough oxygen in my lungs when I am breathing. Therefore, I have to take a very deep breath every time i breath and sometimes I have to do it over and over again. I also get tired very easily. Although I only do a little bit of work or exercise, I can lose my breath easily. And it ends up making me inhale and exhale in a fast timing (if you know what I mean). Sometimes my chest can feels hurt a little but it s rarely happen so I never talk about it. I went to a heart doctor and he said it was perfectly fine and he said I don t have asthma. So what could it be?
