Hi, im an 18 year old female I weigh about 160, my mother & sister has high blood pressure, other than that no family heart issues/attacks. For the past 4 days my left arm (upper) and my left coller bone has been aching, I wouldn't say pain.. its more like pulling a muscle feeling and also my left side of my neck, it can really feel it if I lean forward. And also ive been burping alot, and really bad indegestion last night that made me feel sick, but I always have indegestion, it runs in the family. Normal pulse in the 70s. No bad chest pains, just weird feelings.. I literally worry myself sick! I have bad anxiety & I have googled all my symptoms and they all say heart attack!!! I am so worried! can anybody help?!
At your age with no family history of congenital heart disease odds are that you are not having a heart attack. It is likely you may have slept funny or just pulled a muscle somehow and are hyper focused on the discomfort. However, if you ever suspect you are having a heart attack it is better you go to the er as opposed to asking for advice on the internet. Time is critical for such situations. But to rest your mind, if you do not have any underlying heart disease then chances of a heart attack at your age are very slim. Heart attacks are usually caused by clogged arteries and yours have not had a lot of time to really clog up. That said, there are other reasons for having a heart attack but odds are at your age your heart can tolerate what you throw at it. But considering you have been in pain for a number of days it may be prudent to go and see a doctor to get checked out. Take care.
