17 year old, Chest pain

Posted , 3 users are following.

hello I’m a 17 year old male I weigh 70kg go to the gym often and in all round good shape. About 4 months ago I started noticing a slight chest pain every now and then and ever since then it has been slowly getting worse. Since then I’ve been to the doctor multiple time and emergency multiple times thinking I’m having a heart attack because I get a lot of palpitations with chest pain and now i just don’t know what to do because everytime I go they say my EKG results are normal and my heart seems fine. The once dull pain is getting worse and I get sudden sharp pains in my chest. I don’t know what is wrong with me and I’m worried I’m about to drop dead. Can anyone talk to me or help explain wtf is going on.

    Get it checked properly, Don't ignore. Apart from it have less spicy food, junk food and stuffs made of white flour,as it's tough to digest. Some problem of gas efflux can be expected. Don't go to Gym, try to do less intense yoga and breathing exercises, more exertion can lead to costocondritis. Try to maintain weight by yoga,relaxation and change the food habits. Do not smoke and drink, because it will some way some day going to affect the body in any manner. Try to relax yourself during the pain and keep thinking " This too shall pass and will pass" and don't depend on anyone in family, otherwise you might suffer homesickness or depression. Go to parks for relaxation in morning and give yourself some time and sleep straight.. Most important I am the person who actually beaten chest pain, I was totally on bed rest for 4 months with every normal finding in several tests gone through. But , unfortunately I went in to depression after recovering from chest pain for which I am recovering at present.. and yes it all works.. please take care.. Good lunch.. God bless you with good health dear

      Thankyou very much richa, I’m happy to here you were able to overcome your chest pain and I really hope I can do the same. I’m currently on a waiting list to get a endoscopy to see if there’s anything wrong with my intestine or esophagus so hopefully that’s all ok. But yes I think I’m in need of some big lifestyle changes as I have been drinking at a lot of party’s lately and every morning after that I would wake up with a pounding heart. Also I have a lot of passion for weight lifting so giving that up is also going to be difficult but I appreciate your response a lot. Thankyou

    If you have torn a muscle, it will take six weeks to heal up, but if you have managed to damage some ligament or cartlegde, that is a very long healing process 12 weeks or more.  

    ​And if you are continuing to push though with damage, you are only going to make it worse.

    ​The chances of it being a heart condition are 100,000 to 1, but it does happen, a virus can attack you heart muscle, extremely rare, husband who was 59 when his heart was attacked by a virus, he had not even been sick, just a sniffle and not much more, but it did do damage, but that damage could be seen on his ECG.

    ​Other than that chest pain can be caused by stomach issues, keep away from spicy foods, alcohol, too much fat, and see if doing without the junk food helps, keep it bland and healthy for a few weeks. 

    No onions, no garlic, no cinnamon, no chocolate, no coffee, no beef for dinner, no coke, I love all of these but they do not love me, all of these are triggers for me and I avoid as much as possible, I have worked out my own salvation over the years, and do not even have to take meds anymore for stomach issues.

      Yeah it’s likely not my heart I’ve had a holter monitor on for a day to check my heart rhythm which came back normal and also got a chest x-ray which was also normal. and I’m on a waiting list for an endoscopy to see if it could be related to my stomach or esophagus and in the meantime I haven’t had any alcohol and have been trying to eat as clean as possible. Thanks a lot for the response all this information helps me a lot
