Sometimes when I get very upset or very stressed I get this squeezing on my heart and I can't breathe easily and if I tried to move I get this pain like my chest is getting ripped in the left side . I'm a female in my early 20's . I have no blood pressure no diabetes or high cholesterol , I'm not overweight I workout 3 - 4 times a week . Is it possible that I'm having some heart disease or heart attack ?
Hi, as you are able to exercise normally its unlikely that the chest pain is due to a cardiac cause. Cardiac pain or chest pain can be felt as a tightness and worsens with activity or exercise.Do you have a family history of cardiac disease? And in addition you do not have any risk factors. The sensation could be due to anxiety. Try to relax and de stress and see if it helps with your symptoms. Take care. Regards.
