I'm 17 & have chest pains, shortness of breath, rapid heart beat from simple tasks, extreme dizziness and fatigue. EKG was normal. Is this normal?

Multiple symptoms: Of course not. How could all these symptoms in a 17 year old be "normal"? You need a complete physical exam including serology and hormone levels as well as pregnancy test and mental health eval for anxiety and depression. If you take drugs (MJ) or smoke, drink alcohol or are obese or inactive, you will be negatively effected and may develop symptoms as you've described. ...Read more
