Im 18 years old, do no drugs and have been experiencing chest pain for about 3 months now. The pain is often dull ache, sharp pain, squeezing and sometimes feels as is my heart stops for a second or so. I also get pain under my left shoulder(not sure if its related). The pain has me nervous everyday and constanly afraid something is gonna happen. Some days ill be fine nearly all day and then ill get a pain or the "heart stopping" feeling. I have had an EKG, echocardiogram, heart monitor, blood tests and chest X ray. ( All but the monitor were around 3 months ago). I have had no diagnosis except people close to me often say anxiety. I doubt its that because of the strong pain and being uncomfortable. Please help....ive had no diagnosis and its hard dealing with the pain everyday without a diagnosis. Leaning forward or any position im in doesnt ease the pain. I havent had breathing problems except when i get nervous when the pain occurs.
