Hi everyone,

I have been experiencing a tight feeling in my chest right by my sternum periodically since Saturday afternoon. I am 25 years old, exercise for 30-45 minutes per day, and eat fairly well. I take one-a-day vitamins and limit my caffeine intake. I'm a teacher and am in grad school, so I have a mild to moderate stress level.

The only thing out of the ordinary that I have done is get the Gardasil vaccine. I got the first vaccination at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Is the chest tightness related to the vaccine?
