I am a 26 year old female and I started having upper chest pain on my left side and in my collarbone area 5 days ago well 2 days I started having bad pain in my breast bone/middle of my chest so I went to the ER. They did blood work, chest x ray, ekg, my heart rate was elevated at one point it was 116, it did go down by the time I left the ER. The doctor said my heart was fine I wasn't having a heart attack and diagnosed me as having costochondritis, but could it be my heart? I just don't have a lot of faith in doctors and I just wanna be sure.
