I have chest pain and constantly feel hungry the last couple days. No matter what I eat the pain and hunger won't go away.

No fool chest pain: On the surface this appears not to be life threatening. All things equal, likely is esophageal reflux, heartburn, muscular, costochondritis, chest wall pain, perhaps an ulcer or anxiety. However, initially chest pain lasting more than 1-2 seconds always requires being seen by a doctor until it is determined not a serious, albeit bothersome, problem. This practice saves lives. ...Read more

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

If there are prolonged, fast palpitations (>120/min or so) we'd use a monitor to see if your heart had flipped into an abnormal rhythm. Such rhythm problems can often be treated by an electrophysiologist, especially in a young patient like yourself. ...Read more
