Hey guys, i am a 16 year old male who is very active and i usually eat health all the time. I have run cross country for the past 2 years and have never had a problem. I am one of the top runners on varsity and i usually finish very well in the races. This all changed during a meet yesterday. During the second lap of our 3 mile race, i got a sort of pain under mu left armpit. It wasnt so bad, so i kept going but the pain soon moved to the rest of my chest including directly over my heart. It soon became very uncomftorable, so i slowed down to a walk. After walking for about 30 seconds, the pain was gone so i started running again, but the pain over my heart came back. So, i slowed down to a jog and the pain lessened, but i could still feel it a little bit. Today during practice, we ran very slowly, but i still got the sorness over my heart and chest area for the whole run. Again, as soon as i start walking, the pain goes away and i am fine. What is happening? Anybody had this happen before? Is it possible to get a cramp on or over your heart area? What are the odds of this happening twice over the period of a day?Should i be worried? I dont know what to do, becuase i enjoy running cross country. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
(PS: I realize that this probably should have been posted in the heart forums, but for the past 2 days the forum has reached the maximum amount of questions, so i posted here)
