my chest started to hurt.. Like deep inside ever so often, please help

I'm 16 years old. This morning after the shower, my chest started to hurt.. Like deep inside ever so often, like after every odd breathe. It went away for the rest of the day.. Until I tried to sleep earlier. I lay down and its back.. its horrible. Is it my heart? Its like a tight ticking pain, and it feels cold. I am not over weight, I am healthy. What if something happens, everyone is asleep? :( I cant call a doctor!! Its 2am here in the UK! And I told my mother and she said to go back to sleep.. she doesn't think anything can harm me.. but thats not true :( Please! I'm so scared.. I don't want to die!

Tell your parents. But it sounds like and anxiety attack. MEdical books describe them as feelings of heart attacks and it feels like you are going to die. Are you stressed out? In any case go to your parents and have them decide what medical attention you may need.

Hello, I dont know how to explain this exactly but lately I always feel like Im not inhaling enough air and every 5-10 seconds I take a very deep breath till I can feel it in my chest so the suffocating feeling goes away for a while but its becoming everyday more of a problem, I belive this is caused because lately I started keeping my abdominal muscles flexed/ tummy sucked in and this interfered with my breathing but I dont really know...Id really like your advice on this, thanks for taking the time to read my problem!

Hello I am 16 and lately I have been having stomach ach, mainly at the bottom and both sides of the lower abdominals . On top of that, I ve been sweating a lot during the day, right until the night and cannot sleep at all. When do I try to sleep, I feel a bit of pressure on the side of my lower abdominal. Lastly, I have a black stool each time I take the trip to the loo. I think this might be due to sitting on the coach all day and the lack of sleep. Also the late heavy snacks which I eat during the night. Although perhaps knowing what the causes are due to my problems, I just like to make sure. So could you help me. Thanks

Hello, I have high blood pressure, and am a 21-year-old female. I have been prescribed a low-dose high blood pressure medication, and haven t had any complications with it. However, lately, I have been feeling like my chest is heavy and have had a hard time sleeping for quite some time. I wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air, and no matter how much sleep I get, I m exhausted when I wake up. I am starting to think it s Sleep Apnea, but am wondering if there are any other heart-associated links? There is S.A in my family - my father has it. Ideas?
