This started about 6 months ago, a sharp shooting pain in the left side of my chest. These pains didn’t worry me as it only happened twice and lasted approximately 20 mins. About 3 weeks ago I experienced the same pain but with a lingering effect in my chest, a pain that didn’t go away, not a sharp stabbing pain but an ache. This gradually got better in 4 days but on the 5th day the ‘process’ repeated itself. Now I feel a small pain in my chest which comes and goes and now has given me a stiff neck and back. These symptoms seem to calm down when I’m at work and I’m not thinking about the pain, but I still feel it’s in there, as if it is reminding me. There are no known triggers for this ache and pain, it’s just random. Sometimes it does start when I bend down to put socks on etc but other than that no real trigger. I am a 17 year old male, and I’m worried that this isn’t a muscular pain or pulled muscle as it would hurt all the time right? It wouldn’t just come and go? I’m worried that it’s a serious desiese but the symptoms when searched don’t point out any diagnosis. I’ve been to the docs, no actual scan on heart or x Ray as I only went to my gp who has booked an appointment for me and checked my blood pressure & heart rate which all seem fine, no real tests though such as a blood test or ecg scan or ultrasound. I hope this isn’t a chronic or serious desiese and that it will just pass. Thanks in advance for replies.
