What do these little aches near my heart mean ?

For the past 6 months I have these dull aches in my chest, mostly on my left side. I am obviously not having a heart attack because i am still alive, but they are very alarming. My dr seems to think its stress related, and has not done any other tests. I am 25 years old...drink occassionally, just quit smoking a month ago...it feels like i need to stretch that side or something. very strange...anyone else get this???

Have a nice day. You did upset me with your response to my question only because I have severe anxiety attacks and feel like I am going to die. I don't take the subject of death very good, especially when someone says your going to die. Anyway thanks for apologizing! Didn't mean to freak out as my mom says.

Hi. I m female, age 64, 5 4 and 140 lb. No history of HBP, heart, or arterial disease. I take daily meds for depression (Citalopram HBR 60 mg) and hypothyroidism (Levothyroxine 125 mg). No known eye problems except near-sightedness (I wear glasses, no contacts). Today I blew my nose maybe a little harder than usual and shortly thereafter a family member told me my right eye was very red. I checked and the eye has what appears to be blood all around its rim. 4 Hours have passed. The eye looks the same. It s a little teary but the tears are clear in color. I think there is some mild achiness around the eye, which just developed within the past hour or so (but I am prone to anxiety and may just be worried about it!). I am hoping it s just a minor rupture of a blood vessel or something but of course I imagine the worst, too, like a small stroke. Any ideas or advice? Thank you so much.

Our 31 year son has thoracic back issues. He is an addict, alcoholic and liar. He has been through rehab twice. At age 14 and again in his early 20 s. He is on MS contin prescribed by a pain doctor in Austin, TX. We just read the web information on MSContin and believe he should not be prescribed this medication as an addict. He is also a patient with MHMR. We believe he needs a dual diagnosis. Mental and Substance Abuse. Are there rehab centers that work with patients with no insurance with a dual diagnosis? He does not have a job. He got his TXDL back yesterday after a 180 day suspension for DUI. He still has not gone before the judge due to lawyer extensions. His biological father paid an attorney $2500 to represent him in court. The lawyer keeps putting extensions due to his schedule. The first court date was December. The second date was January and has now been pushed to February. We are concerned that his mentally ability combined with substance abuse (even though legally prescribed) keeps him from functioning. Do we stand to the side and watch the fall? Do we attempt to find a dual diagnosis treatment facility and try and get him on the new health care system (Obama Care)? We see the gravity of the situation and need guidance. If you can discuss dual diagnosis treatment facilities and the likelihood of Obama care paying for rehab? Thanks,
