I have son, almost 16 yrs old, who just decided to mention that he has chest pain that located in the upper middle area of his chest along with shortness of breath only at the point of exertion when he plays sports or trains. Has had this pain for almost a year now. He is a varsity basketball player and plays travels basketball so he pretty much plays all year long. He says he has to bend over to catch his breath when the pain starts and it stops shortly after the activity stops. He had an abnormal EKG 2 days ago. Also he did have asthma growing up but has out grown it for the most part. Also wanted to mention that he has had lower jaw pain that sometimes lock for almost 1 year as well. Would like to know what is a possible diagnosis?
I would strongly recommend that, instead of posting to a forum like this, you take your son to a pediatric cardiologist for evaluation. He has an abnormal ECG and has exercise-associated chest pain. These two things are quite concerning. There are many diagnoses that this could be, but without evaluating him, the list is too long to review here.
