I am 25 years old. And I have had chest pain for the last, well about a year now. It started very sharp and really unbearable, I couln't sleep, I couldn't go to the gym, I couldn't do any of my normal activties without just wanting to cry because it hurt so bad... Well I finally made it to the doctor after dealing with it for a month or so. The doctor asked me about my families history, took blood samples, and told me that he believed I am healthy and that it was just some inflammation in my chest cavity and it would go away by itself in a couple weeks to a couple months. I thought well I don't want to live with it at all anymore and kind of felt still unsure. But as time went on it continued. Until I had been dealing with it for 6 months, I went back to the doctor, this time he could tell that I was frustrated, he did a chest x-ray and a EKG, and still said that everything is fine. Everything looks good, its just inflammation in my chest cavity and he didn't know why it still persisted. I am so frustrated, I am still dealing with it today, and lately I have noticed that I get short of breath doing certain little things that I never use to. And I am so worried that it is something serious, and I am going to die young.
