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