I'm a sixteen years old female. For the past month, I've been feeling dizzy/lightheaded. The feeling of dizziness gets worse when I stand, walk, basically whenever I move. I haven't fainted yet. On top of that, I've been having trouble getting air in. I can't take long breaths, whenever I try I just feel even more dizzy. Also, my heart randomly starts beating really fast when I do simple things. For example, I'm having trouble talking, it just makes me out of breath. I also have some chest pain sometimes (there isn't a specific time) that seems to spread to my arm, shoulder and neck (on the left side).
As I said, I've been feeling that way for almost a month. Whenever I walk, I have to hold something, otherwise I feel like fainting. I'm also tired, but not more than usual. I'm healthy even though I am slightly underweight (110 lbs for 5 feet 6 inches). I do not practice any competitive sport right now, but I enjoy working out and going out for a run. I have a little asthma, but nothing serious. My family doesn't have any important health issues.
I know there isn't any doctors here, but I hope I can get an idea of if I should seek medical attention or not. Anyone has an idea of what I could possibly have?
