Hello, i'm a 17 year old male that has a concern about his heart for about 2 years now, it started off with chest pains, now I get all sorts of symptoms. Whats gotten me to write this is what i've experienced just now. I was sitting getting shoulder pain and worrying and all of the sudden I've felt a weird sensation in my chest where my heart is. It felt like my heart is struggling or palpitating I jumped putting my hand on my chest i couldn't feel anything for a second and then my heart rate speed up and I could hear my heart loudly in my ears i started walking around the house I've checked my BP it was over 160/80 or something like that, but it went down in minutes back to normal. I don't know how to cope with this. I've been to couple of places to get my heart tested, numerous ECG's have been done and came back just fine. I've had one echo done which came back as a mild aortic valve regurgitation but other than that i've been told I don't need any medicine and my heart muslce is strong. They've advised me to come back next year. I'm waiting for another Echo which is at 25th of June. Sometimes it gets better, and I got more active outdoors, running fast causes my chest to hurt, the pain gets worse as i breathe in and stops short after I stop running or if i run slower. Sometimes I do feel sick randomly or short of breath, but that's when I'm having a stressful day usually. I don't know what to do anymore and I feel like i can die any minute, I don't know what i'm going to achieve posting this but I guess I'm looking for reassurance. Thank you for replies!
