Not angina: Chest pain that lasts over 30 minutes and is not a heart attack: is NOT coming from the heart. The operative word is "stressed" and that is where you at age 25, should concentrate. Be sure this is not anxiety reaction or panic attack that can be as life changing and serious as a heart attack. Get help. Good luck.
