Hi, the first thing that I want to state is my age which I know is sort of irrelevant when it comes to potential heart issues, though I just thought that it'd make my questions a lot easier to answer. With that being said I just turned seventeen years old and for about a week or so, I've been having unexplained chest pain. I have major health anxiety and my entire family is aware of it, but at this point they're so dismissive of it because they think that it's all in my head. My anxiety was so bad that I went to the ER back in June because I thought I was having a heart attack, and it turned out that I wasn't. You can read about it in one of my other posts: https://patient.info/forums/discuss/i-ve-been-having-anxiety-over-the-possibility-of-having-a-stroke-brain-tumor-blood-clot--604468.
The months after I went to the ER I felt fine and did not experience any chest pain and I didn't have much anxiety about it anymore. That is until now. Early last week, I think that it was on a Monday, I was experiencing chest pain again for the first time in months. Only it was not like the usual pain that I felt. The pain I currently feel is on the sides of my chest and under my chest as well. The pain is felt on both sides of my chest, though it did begin on the left side first. It does not feel excruciating but it still hurts and makes it hard for me not to be anxious. When I tried telling my parents about it they didn't think that it was a big deal, and I'm hoping that they're right.
I google a lot of symptoms and I just want to clarify that the pain is not worse when I breathe in, cough, or anything else. I don't have shortness of breath and my arms do not hurt either. I also don't feel pain in my neck or jaw. I am however experiencing more indigestion and though I have before, it feels worse when accompanied with chest pain. The pain doesn't get worse with physical activity either. I'm just really confused as to what this could be.
