This does not sound like classic heart attack symptoms, granted they are not always classic. (BTW, no...you don't always pass out) You should definately tell your parent and have them take you to your doctor. You are at risk for heart disease in the future, plus diabetes and other diseases because of your weight. Weight loss is an excellent prevention for those. I don't think it is an actual heart attack, but remember....I am not a doctor and niehter are the other people on here. The only way to know for sure is to go to your doctor. Good Luck

I know this might be a really ridiculous question, but I recently had some sort of anxiety/panic attack (chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, etc.) and ever since that I had some sort of fear of having a heart attack. Again I know it s pretty ridiculous. Anways, I m 15 years old, I don t drink, smoke, or do drugs (of course). I am overweight, but I play lots of sports. I occasionally eat fast food when I need to eat a quick dinner or something, but not often. I usually eat homemade meals mostly healthy. I know I can t get a heart attack, but my family has a record of Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and I think Heart Problems. All I was wondering was if it was possible for me to get a heart attack at my age. I was also wondering if you guys have any advice for those anxiety/panic attacks. Thanks! :D

I am a 33 yr old female and I swear I have heart issues. I have had so many test done for my heart and everything has come back 100% normal. i have had countless number of EKG s I have a 48 heart montior I had a echo of my heart. my bp is a little high (bottom number in the low 80 s) my cholesterol total is 166. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and my Dr (bless his heart he is awesome) says all the things I feel is related to my panic not heart. Is there really anything else they could do to test my heart or did I pretty get everything? My doc said he wouldn t send me for a cardic cath cuz everything else was fine. Yes I do take meds to my panic attacks.

Okay, so I m 17 years old and the past week I think, I ve been having chest pains. It s usually only when I move a certain way, like if I hunch over or turn my upper body. Today about three hours ago my left arm started hurting, it only hurts when I lift my arm up though and it s by my shoulder/upper arm. I m not exactly the most healthy eater but I eat noodles a lot and I only drink water and I don t exercise but I m really tiny. I ve had chest pains before, almost a year ago and was checked out but I was fine, I had chest x-rays and blood tests done. I also have major anxiety , I ve had it for about 6/7 months and I m on medication daily for it. I know it s rare for teens to have them, but it is possible. So could I be having a heart attack or could it be anxiety/stressed related?

I keep feeling my heart beat multiple times, too fast. It only happens for a minute or so, then it comes back again. And it usually leaves my out of breath. I went to the doctor last month for anxiety attacks because i also have sharp pains in my wrist, fingers, toes, back, and just about everywhere else. Do you think my heart is beating to fast over anxiety? Or is it something else?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
