ve been getting quite serious heart and chest pains, kindly help me

Recently I ve been getting quite serious heart and chest pains, one I remember the most is where I was unable to do anything due to immense pain where it seemed everytime my heart beat I would it would hurt a lot! I also had a pain also around my heart today when walking down stairs where I couldn t walk or anything because the pain was that great, although it was only for a few seconds. A week of so ago they were uncommon, but I seem to be getting about 4 or 5 a day now. I m only 16 and I ve already been to see my GP but they couldn t (or wouldn t) help. What shall I do, do you think it s serious? Blood pressure has been tested and is normal.

Panic attacks can cause chest pain. Call and schedule an apt with your dr and discuss this. I would also ask for a complete blood workup. God Bless!

Hi, I ve had heart palpitation feelings on and off ever since late April. I am a 21ish year old male at 6 ft and about 155 lbs. I ve had (within the time since): 2 ekgs 2 blood tests an echocardiogram (but not a stress echo) heart monitor for an hour at the hospital multiple doctors listen to my heart And all of those came back normal. But I am still concerned because: I ve had some chest discomfort at times (very mild) in the past two days ( I am currently not feeling anything), and I ll still get strange feelings from time to time like fluttering, or beating hard, or sometimes a bit of shortness of breath feeling. And my left lung always seems a little constricted and perhaps even has a little bit of stuff in it, but nothing major. And that has been going on since before last summer (I got a chest xray and it was clear) I have no idea what to think. Please help, Neil

My dad had a kidney removed because of cancer, while recovering in hospital he had a heart attack, they diagnosed him with heart disease and arteriosclerosis. He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting. Today he kind of passed out and twitched a little out of nowhere for a few seconds. What should we do? in regards to diet any home remedies that relieve pain or should we call an ambulance? I need help!!!

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
