If you have large breasts and do not wear a good supportive bra to support them, this may cause chest pain as well. However your description to nonspecific to venture a good guess. If you were much older, the list of potential causes gets much longer. ...Read more

Yes: Palpitations are often nothing but teen years are when we see a spike in the diagnosis of svt. Her asthma medicines will speed her heart rate anyway which might explain all, but they could help trigger svt. A 24 holter monitor would really help if she is having palpitations on a daily basis. Yes see a pediatric cardiologist. ...Read more
