Hi, I am 22 year old female. I have been having chest pains for the last 6-8 months. I am almost positive they are from my old job since I was using a cleaning chemical there and they didn't have any breathing mask for it. At first the chest pain was just happening when I was working hard or walking fast. Then I started having chest pain even when I was sitting down and not doing anything. When I would wake up in the morning the pain would be worst on my left side, and I also have some stomach pains. I had 2 chest x-rays and a cat scan. Both did not show anything. So my doctor gave me an inhaler to see if that helped. Azmacort. It has helped a lot. Also I have quit my old job and currently have a new one. Since then the pain hasn't been that bad but I am still having the chest pains, especially when I first wake up in the morning, walk a long distance or really fast, and am working hard.
