im 13, going on to 14. I have really bad health anxiety and pretty sure this is just another anxiety session or whatever but I want to know if anyone is experiencing the same. Anyways, sometimes I get sharp, stabbing pain in my chest area and sometimes other areas on my body, too. What is scaring me most is left chest pain that has a sharp stabbing sensation which lasts like 5 seconds or less. The symptoms go away after those seconds. Sometimes I get it on my right side chest and sometimes in my abdomen. Its just weird how it lasts only a couple seconds and moving/breathing kind of makes it worse. Im a little overweight, 125lbs and 4'11. But im trying to exercise and eat more healthy. My dad's side of the family has a history of hypertension. I heard the symptoms could be Precordial catch syndrome because it seems exactly like what Im experiencing. But because of my ongoing anxiety, a little part of me still has to think its something more extreme and dangerous. Also, I was walking around my neighborhood and I was sweating but the sweat felt cold? I was really running or anything, just walking. And to make things worse, I read that cold sweats could mean a heart attack is coming. What are the chances of a 13 year old having heart failure or a heart attack?
