Lately, I have been noticing that mostly when I am anxious, or stressed I feel some pains in the chest. Also when I work out (and also during sex) I immediately get flushing and all red in the chest area. What could that be? I should also mention that I am quite young for any heart diseases, I am 20 years old. Thank you.
You might want to get your cortisol level checked. A
lso, flushing is something that happens to a lot of people who have anxiety. Have you taken your heart rate when the flushing is happening to see if it is fast?
Have you gotten your heart checked, even though you are young? Some people can have congenital abnormalities of the heart and even young ladies can have problems in their heart, so best to get that checked on.
I also wonder have you ever gotten mast cell activation disorder ruled out?
