i am sixteen and have been experiencing chest pains for over a year now. it's in the center of my chest and it feels like someone is squeezing my heart as tight as they can when it happens my heart races really fast and i have a hard time breathing and it makes me be in so much pain i lean over and just grip the thing is though it's not a thing that happens when im exercising i am simply sitting there completely relaxed not anything energetic. the pains are not a daily thing they happen every so often through out the month i dont know what to do about them i never get any results when i go to a local doctor they just assume it's an exercising thing and i must of been using alot of energy but im not.

  • I had the exact same thing happen to me when I was 14, it mostly happened to me when i was just laying on the couch watching tv or in school during class. The one day right before I was suppose to leave for school I couldnt really move and my heart was beating so fast I made my mom take me to the doctor (which I try to avoid as much as possible) when he checked to see what my heart rate was, he was really shocked that I was even still awake, it ended up being 175 bps...which actually was not too bad cause it slowed down while waiting to get into the office, after that I went to lots of doctors even had a heart monitor and nothing ever showed up. It eventually just went away, one doctor did tell me that it was my ribs just rubbing together which was cause the pain, be he also told me that the doctors who diagnosed me with celiac disease where complete idiots and were wrong (which he is actually the wrong one) so I just did not believe him and went on with life, but yeah sorry I could not be of any help just letting you know my story of the same thing. Hope you find out what it is!
