In brief: Chest pain

See your doctor immediately.
If continues go to emergency room. Exertionsl chest pain can reflect underlying coronary disease or possibly asthma with exertion. Either way should be evaluated asap.

I didn't see Dr. Saunders' answer before I submitted my answer, but I agree with him completely.

In brief: Potentially serious

Exertional chest discomfort is potentially a red flag.
If you're >40 or diabetic at any age, or smoke or have other risk factors, your symptom could be due to heart disease. A normal ECG last year was helpful information last year but has no bearing on the present. You should refrain from further strenuous exertion until you've been examined by your doctor.

At 28, the likelihood of blockage in your coronary arteries is very low unless you have diabetes or use cocaine (not suggesting that you do). Blue veins in the wrist area is absolutely normal! Look around at friends and you see it in many. It's more prominent when the arm is held lower than heart level (allowing veins to fill). Pain is likely musculoskeletal.

Sepsis is a medical emergency marked by bacteria in the blood with high fever, chills, generalized aches, and often shock. I doubt you have it. Good luck with your visit today
