I am an 18 year old male with occasional chest pains around my heart and some minor trouble breathing when this happens. It has been happening for the last few years.

The chest pain will happen at random times, it does not seem to matter if i am exercising or just sitting around at my house. It can happen anywhere from twice a week to once every 2 months. The pain will usually last about 1 to 2 minutes but can last longer or shorter. The pain feels like its coming from my heart and not the lung or the muscle around it.

I can breath when this is happening but if i take a deep breath it will increase the pain. I have to relax and wait for it to end to breath completely normally. Thank you in advance to anyone who answers this, any help is greatly appreciated. I do not know if this is a major problem or if its just nothing, so im hoping i can get an answer here
