Hi, lately I have been experiencing the following symptoms: chest pain (a stabbing pain in my left chest that spreads up the left side of my neck into my ear a little and a lot down my left shoulder and arm). This has happened twice. Once after excersise and today while driving and I had barely eaten all day so seems to be brought on by excersise and stress/hunger? The pain is very severe and it hurt to breathe and couldn't walk but didn't hurt to press on the spot it was radiating pain from. Lasted about 45 mins then the pain died off slowly. A dull pain from upper left chest to shoulder is still there hours after though. The one driving lasted only about a minute and way less severe. The chest pain happened a few weeks apart. I've also been feeling really short of breath and get dizzy spells every time I bend over. Also yesterday I looked down at my feet and they were blue.. Maybe an oxygen problem? I'm a 16 year old slim female who is very athletic if that helps rule out anything. Also when I run a have sort of a wheezing thing, sounds like asthma but inhalers didn't help. Also I don't think it's related but I have a herniated disk in my low back. I know it's probably not a heart attack or anything but I looked up symptoms and it said maybe angina or something? Any ideas?
