7 yr old son had left chest pain when running. It stops whrn he stops.  More aaffected when running longer distances.  What could it be?

Fast heart rate: Palpitation from fast heart rate can cause chest pain. But, this may also be from chest wall related cause or a congenital heart anomaly. A 7 yr old should not have this symptom. Please see a pediatric cardiologist for diagnosis and treatment. It is always a relief to know that nothing is serious enough to be concerned. ...Read more

Please explain why people have chest pain while eating food and when running?

See your doctor: Could be a problem with skin, nerves, muscle, shoulder, lung, heart, or stomach. See your doctor for a more thorough history, physical exam and further evaluation. If you sleep on your stomach you could have a neck strain that radiates pain to the chest or arm. Get checked out just to make sure. ...Read more

For some reason I only get stark but very brief center of chest pain when running. Not at rest. Not in other exercises (bike rides, etc). Any ideas?

For some reason I only get stark but very brief center of chest pain when running.  Not at rest.  Not in other exercises (bike rides, etc). Any ideas?

?: I don't understand your question. "I only get stark...." Huh? Pain confined to the center of your chest only with running and not other exercises is likely muscular and not cardiac but, because of your age and if you have other risk factors, a stress test might be indicated. ...Read more

Chest pain while running for about 4 minutes last night. got EKG 2 months ago and all looked fine. it was mild and stopped after i finished running.

Chest pain while running for about 4 minutes last night.  got EKG 2 months ago and all looked fine. it was mild and stopped after i finished running.

Info: Key to chest pain
1) Did it hurt because it was cold outside? Did you breathing hurt?
2) Oppressive chest pain? Radiation? did it get better when you stop exercising? Has this happened before? Do you have history of Heart disease?

If you are 26, and this has not happened again it is unlikely that it is cardiac in nature. A rest EKG doesnt mean much illiciting ischemia though.

Continue eval: Who is ordering the tests? ER or pediatrician? In either case, call the pediatrician to give this update. S/he may want to see him today given the new symptoms, or may have advice based on the ongoing workup, additional symptoms/exam findings and suspected diagnoses.

I am trying to train for a 5k.Recently while running (just started)i get chest pains and palpitations (but I have p.O.T.S) my cardio gave me the ok train but I am so frustrated w/these symptoms, advice?

Not sure: You are too young to have any blockage in the arteries of heart causing chest pain. The only thing it could be is tachyarrhythmia which means your heart is abnormally running very fast. But since this doesn't happen at rest and only happens with exercise, it could be sinus tachycardia (normal phenomenon). Next time check your pulse how fast is it and whether regular or irregular. ...Read more

What can I do if my breast hurt when running, jumping, or pressed; is it normal?

What can I do if my breast hurt when running, jumping, or pressed; is it normal?

Maybe: If your breasts are somewhat pendulous, then this type of activity can hurt. Also depending on where you're at in your cycle may hurt as well. Make sure you have a supportive bra as that can definitely help. Some women even wear 2 bras if breasts are heavy, when they work out. If pain is localized in one spot, be sure to see a doctor. Sometimes caffeine can cause as well. ...Read more
