Question: Chest pains and so young

 sew - Mon Jun 20, 2005 6:51 pm

Recently I have been experiencing some chest pains in the middle of my right and left breast. I have also been experiencing a rapid heart beat and a thumping or pounding in my chest under my left breast. Concerning the pain.. they are not that sharp but are dull pains that come and go. I am not sure if it is my heart or mabe a muscle and should I be concerned about the thumping in my chest? Please repond because I am scared at only 15 years old!
Thank oyu in advance!

Consult your doctor in order to exclude any cardiac cause of your pain. This can be done by physical examination, ECG, Echocardiogram and other appropriate investigations.
