Okay so I am a 20 year old small girl weighing about 100-110lbs I've always been super healthy. In the middle of January so around I'd say the 13th I start to get this weird chest pain I thought it was anxiety or like a panic attack so I just ignored it but then I saw that it wasn't going away so I got really scared it lasted for about 2 weeks and i felt extremely dizzy like almost as if out of nowhere I was going to collapse. I also was having trouble walking almost as if I couldn't catch my breathe I feel tho like that was built up fear and anxiety because of the chest pain and my family history of heart attack. Anyways I went to the hospital 3 times the first time they did a chest x ray blood work and urine samples and told me everything looked fine that it was just anxiety and they gave me pills for it. I then went a 2nd time because of course it got worse and I was terrified and this time the doctor was so nice and caring and I was crying and telling him how scared I was and how my grandpa and uncle had a heart attack and he took me seriously and he did everything blood work urine tests and he came and had told me my D- dimer or however you spell it was elevated and he requested a CT scan asap to make sure it wasn't a pulmonary embolism at the point I was scared for my life crying uncontrollably telling my mom all these things as if I was going to die. He then came back and told me I was fine and everything in my chest looked fine but I still don't understand why my d -dimer was elevated it still bothers and scares me till this day. I went home and continued with chest pain I was really terrified all I could think about was death I don't know why. I then went to a really known hospital here in Seattle one of the greatest because of all the specialists. And they ran the same tests besides a CT scan of course and told me I was fine to just take ibuprofen and if symptoms worsens to come back. They also referred me to a cardiologist and I made the appointment. I did a stress test and the doctor told me I was fine and that I was too young to be there and that if I took a look at the waiting room I didn't fit in because I'm so young and he told me to just take care of myself avoid red meat and exercise. Also I forgot to mention that ever since this pain started I been having really weird sensation all over my legs arms forehead at times and chest at times it feels like twitching or like a liquid feeling almost as if I can feel my blood moving I don't know haha it's weird but it's really uncomfortable and scary cause it doesn't go away and also what's really weird is that when I breathe in sometimes I feel like there's something in my lungs you know when you have phlem and oh cough and it goes away and you breathe better yeah it's like that but I feel it deep in my lungs I guess and also this pain is always switching off between my two Breasts towards the top and right under my left breast and it's always just there and it's like a sharp pain that doesn't go away and I also feel it in that same left area but lower almost as if it was my stomach and it radiates to my back at times too. I do have times where I breathe in deeply and there's pain on my left side abdomen/chest that is why I made an appointment with my primary care doctor and told her everything and she told me it was costochondritis and that I was too young to be having heart problems and that many ppl go to her with this and they think it's a heart attack but really it's costochondritis so she told me to take ibuprofen for pain and that it would go away on its own she said she had it when she was young for 5 months but I don't really feel like it's costochondritis I'm still really scared it's been almost a little over 3 months it is the end of March already and idk what to do anymore idk who to see what my next step should be I feel like no one believes or takes me seriously I just don't want anything bad to happen to me!! PS. Idk if it's necessary to add this but I will any ways just in case, sometimes I think it's endometriosis because my doctor thinks I have that and the reason being why I think I do is because I've read endometriosis sometimes attatches to organs like the lungs and stomach etc. and what if this is what causing my chest pain ? Like I don't even know tho if it would cause chest pain but I'm so scared like idk what to do what to think I'm terrified I just want everything to be okay. 😢 Can someone help me please Idk what to do
