  • Just go on in to the emergency room and tell them you have chest pain with dizziness. Any mention of chest pain is a full cardiac work up. Of course they will have to call your parents to get approval to treat you, but there is no way your parents can blow you off in front of hospital staff. With symptoms like dizziness, chest pain & short of breath the risk is too high of heart problems, the hospital will STRONGLY advise your folks to let them evaluate them. Its the law.p.s., I'm sorry your parents are discounting your ability to know when something is wrong with your body, that they are menimizing your pain. Takecare.:(
