So some background: I'm a 20 year old male, live in the US, 5'9" and 120lbs.
I know I'm not exactly at the greatest risk for heart issues but I've had some alarming symptoms that just keep getting worse. I've had heart palpitations for years, but never developed anything else until now. For the past year, particularly very recently, I've been having shortness of breath, sometimes pretty bad, a pounding heartbeat with it, and some pressure in my chest/a congested feeling. This happens a lot when I sit down or bend over, like to wash my face in the sink. I've had an EKG that was fine, but I plan to see a doc for more tests next week. It's saturday so I don't have any choice but to wait right now. I'm pretty worried because the shortness of breath when bending over thing is listed everywhere as a sure heart failure symptom. I figured I would ask here how much my symptoms really sound like a heart problem. Answers are appreciated. Thanks.
