Hello, im 16 years old male, almost 17. I've been experiencing chest pains for over a year now.
It is really stressful and i've had couple panic attacks in the past, as well as feeling anxious and at times quite depressed about it.
It all began as a chest pain that wouldnt go away, i've went to my GP he said it's really rare for my age to have heart diseases and he gave me some muscle pain relievers. The pain didn't go away. I've been to another hospital where they took my blood and did the ECG, nothing came up and i was told it might be vitamin D deficency as i live in quite rainy place, or just musclular pains that are very common in my age group. That had me relieved a little bit, but the pain didnt go away. I started having panic attacks and once called an ambulance where they checked me up and told me it was just anxiety. That was a year ago. A lot has changed since then, i've started having sharp stabbing pains right where my heart is, that would happen at random, and started having difficulties when walking up the hill. by difficulties i mean, my heart would beat really fast and i couldn't get a full breath, same with stairs. As im writing this i've been experiencing this mild burning pain slightly to the left of my chest, which is hard to locate, sometimes i would get shooting pains into my left arm right to my fingers. And also after running i get chest pain that gets worse with breathing, and sometimes shoots to my jaw. I've read so much about angina that this is it
Also I'm waiting on an Echo of my heart, i've been taken my blood again and my Echo appointment is in March, which is a long time from now... i've been waiting for 2 months. I've been put on beta-blockers since when i was at the doctors he noticed my heart was going a bit fast. It would really help if you gave me some answers or your thoughts on this, as I'm almost going insane and don't know what do. I feel like everything i do is so pointless, and i feel like i can die at any minute.
