i am a 20 year old male. for about 2 weeks now i have been suffering from what can only logically be described as vertigo. I thappens frequently and everyday. it also happens at any given time. i can be sitting doing nothing and it will happen. During this time, i have also been having chest pains. sometimes it isnt to bad but other times it hurts a little. i told my mom about it and that was when she told me that I need to get a check up because when i was a baby i was born with heart complications. basically the doctors said that i was born with a hole in my heart and it was a miracale that i survived. This is kind of scary to me. I am going in to get a check up asap, but i would liek to know of any suggestions as to what this may be and how serious it is. thank you.

The chest pains that you are describing do not sound to me to be of heart origin.
i can not say whether there is something serious or not without examining you.
However, since you have this history of being born with a hole in your heart, i would suggest that you see your doctor right away.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
