i have been getting what seem to be randomly occuring chest pains, i am 15 and it seems whenever i am inactive, for example, lying down in bed, i get these chest pains. I have yet to see a doctor but the pain on the left side of my chest lasts for a considerable amount of time. I do lots of sport and live healthily, any ideas?

  • I can't say what is causing this, but here are some things to think about. There are many different things which may cause chest pain. It may not be one of these.How is your blood pressure?You say you live healthily. Are you one of these people who believes in avoiding salt as much as possible? If you don't have enough salt, you can have very low blood pressure, and that may be causing problems. Note: unless you are person who intentionally avoids salt, you should get enough salt in your diet.Do you live in an area where the water is fluoridated? Have you been drinking fluoridated water all of your life? Do you drink a lot of water (you say you do lots of sport, so you may drink a lot)? People who drink a lot of fluoridated water may suffer fluoride poisoning. Note: Fluoride from water accumulates slowly in the body. You need to drink a lot of fluoridated water for many years to get symptoms.The best way to avoid fluoride is to drink rain water or to distill water. Most water filters do not remove fluoride.I repeat: There are many different things which may cause chest pain. It may not be one of these.

  • you may be having panic attacks, some people have them at the end of the day or at night when they are going to bed or when they are trying to relax. when you go to the doctor you may want to ask them about it.

  • Are you having difficulty breathing? My friend recently had chest pains and difficulty breathing. When she told the doctor about the chest pains, they rushed her to the hospital. Turns out she had a blood clot in her lungs. But chest pains on the left side need to be checked out asap. That's usually associated with the heart having problems.
