Can teenagers get an aortic dissection? For the last few months i've been having pains all over my chest, ranging from a small stinging to a tearing/clenching pain, normally in the center of my chest. Just recently i heard about aortic dissections, and

Can teenagers get an aortic dissection? For the last few months i've been having pains all over my chest, ranging from a small stinging to a  tearing/clenching pain, normally in the center of my chest.  Just recently i heard about aortic dissections, and

It : It would be extremely unlikely for a teenager to have an aortic dissection in the absence of trauma or a connective tissue disorder like Marfan or ehlers-danlos syndrome. I think a far more likely explanation for your symptoms is gastroesophageal reflux (gerd): acid in the stomach leaking into the esophagus and burning it. Gerd is more common when you're lying down and after eating certain foods. If you've noticed your symptoms changing with position and/or diet, that's probably what's going on.

I would suggest that you try one of the over-the-counter medicines for acid reflux. ...Read more
