My relative, a 16 year old boy has chest pain which is slightly towards the left side of the chest, although there isn't any complaint of any referred pain around the left shoulders etc. Sometimes, the pain is slightly towards the right side though. He has described it as very sharp pain, which sometimes grow in intensity when he breathes. They occur at least once a day, and has started since he was 14, turning 15. I am very worried. Some things that had happened through these 2 years, is an increase from low blood pressure (around 70, 98) to a rather moderate level (103, 122). However, to have such raise in these 2 years would be considered pretty high...? Also, physically he is not fat (170, 65kg) but just don't really bother doing physical activities, having a considerably low stamina. He has not been brought to the doctors, since there isn't much free time these days... Being just an ordinary person, I have totally no idea if this is something which require emergency attention or not D: please help me :(
