How u know when you are having a heart attack. I m 28 and worried. Had the holter blood work EKG echo was fine but had a lot of sharp pain mid chest?

I wouldn't worry.: You have had a pretty thorough cardiac work up for someone your age. Heart attacks, although possible are not typically seen at your age unless there are some genetic or other medical issues present. Heart attacks also typically aren't sharp pains, they are classically described as crushing with an inability to catch ones breath. Time to look for other things, reflux, anxiety, etc. ...Read more

I get occasional palpitations. I haven't had them in weeks, but having them now after drinking hot chocolate. I feel breathless. I usually only have them after being active. My heart beats normal and have normal blood pressure.What should I do?

Chocolate: Cocoa/chocolate can cause palpitations. Your symptoms suggest a rapid heart rhythm disorder (tachyarrhythmia). Ask your doctor for a 24 hour recorder (holter) or, if it happens less frequently, a 30 day event monitor to document what your heart is actually doing. Treatment hinges on this documentation. Get your thyroid and electrolytes checked. Avoid caffeine (coffee, cola, and chocolate). ...Read more

Can a teenager get angina? I been having chest pains since i was 16 and drs say its costochondritis. Normal xrays and ekgs but im still nervous. Im 18

Unlikely: At your age, costochondritis or heartburn are the leading cause of chest pain. Heartburn is from irritation at the stomach entrance and lower swallowing tube. This is located just behind the heart. It is aggravated by anxiety, caffeine, chocolate, acidic drinks, reclining after meals, etc. Costochondritis gradually heals. ...Read more

Hello. This is about my chest pains. Please answer quickly. Im scared. I just came back from getting allergy shots. I've never had any problem with them before. Today, though, they really  hurt going in and now im having chest pains, shortness of breath,

Since : Since you posted this 4 days ago, i assume that you are better now. It appears that you may have had a reaction to your allergy shots. Your doctor needs to be made aware of this and adjust the dosage downward. Do you carry an epi-pen? You should. Discuss this with him as well and when you should use it. ...Read more
