Abnormal EKG: In a 21 year-old female should be looked at well. At your age, your risks for heart attack are low unless you have dm, chronic diseases like lupus, familial dyslipidemia , chronic HTN which is unlikely at your age, and smoking heavily. It has to be something congenital or infectious or normal variant. Talk to your doctor for diagnosis and treatment if needed and have peace of mind.

TOS: Early twenties female w. Chest pain ; same sided shoulder pain ; hand tingling might consider thoracic outlet syndrome. The addition of low back pain to this symptom constellation arouses concern for primary pelvic girdle disorder ; functional scoliosis. An osteopath is needed for diagnostic evaluations. Any sufferer of these symptoms would be well served to consider a fibromyalgia cause.
