I am not a doctor first of all. But have you been coughing, very hard and violent for some time. I did that and I cracked rip and rip a tear in my diaphragm. So it felt like my heart hurt when I breathed if was just pain of all else I damage, no heart problem. Also, do you have shortness of breath, these pains while you were to be doing no activity like reading or watching TV. Would this occur if you were walking up a flight of stair compared to walking from the living room to the kitchen. Are you tired, have numbness in any limbs for ever a short time on a regular basis. These are some questions to ask. Write down the questions and answer, plus any new medication you may have started taking or anything new you have started doing in you life that correlated with the time this started. Then I would recommend seeing a doctor or you primary physician. It is always good to write it all down ahead of time. Because the doctors need to know all this and this way you will not leave out something that could be important. Hope you are OK.

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.

doctor1 MD,for the past week....ive had some problems with my heart and i am not sure if they are normal or not. I have been having this pain in my upper left portion of my heart and then goes into the left side of my neck then my left arm kinda goes numb.Ive just recently realized that my neck feels really stiff and hurts if i move it from side to side.When i get these pains in my feels like a numbness and sharp shooting pains. I was told that i have a bicuspid valve and that I already have some thickening of my mitral valve.I havent been back to the cardiologist since december of 2007.What does everyone think? and also...I cant even exercise anymore without getting nauseated or because my heart hurts. I get really dizzy and very very clammy.
