Your symptoms are unlikely to represent heart disease... That said, the most important things someone your age can do to prevent heart disease are: 1) don't smoke 2) exercise daily 3) eat a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol It would be inappropriate for a 15 year old to be on daily aspirin therapy
