A member asked:

Could a poor diet(a lot of sweets and chocolate) lead to blocked arteries at 22? i have sharp, gas like pains in my upper left chest/left side.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Unlikely: Coronary artery disease would be extremely unlikely at your age. Chest discomfort due to coronary blockage is brought on by exertion and relieved by rest. I would look at other causes such as muscular pain, pinched nerve in rib cage, etc. Train yourself to eat a healthy diet and never smoke.
