Time to see a doctor: Chest pressure, chest pain, or trouble breathing are signs that she should talk with her doctor right away or go to the E.R. In adults, chest pain can be a heart attack. He should not drive himself (safer by ambulance). If it turns out not to be myocarditis, heart attack symptoms, or anxiety attack symptoms, the E.R. will also have checked for problems such as a collapsed lung or a pneumonia.
