Of course, any doctor would need to know more but, a lot of other possibilities aside for now, at your age it could be related to your heart.

Uncertain: You are a 30 year old female - don't know if you have any risk factors for a heart attack. However, if you have never had a medical workup and had medical causes ruled out than having it assessed is prudent. It may be a panic attack but we can't diagnose it. ...Read more
