Chest pain is very subjective, it can be caused by a number of factors but most people connect it to Cardiac reasons which causes Cardiac Anxiety. I have been sufferin with very similar chest pains to those that you have mentioned for a year or so. I`m a 21 year old male, in good shape, although i do have a very anxious personality. Chest pains can also be phantom, only in your mind and do not actually have any Biological cause. If the pains do worry you then see a Doctor but take into consideration your age and health Etc.
