Chest Pain

Hi, i'm 19 years old. I notice that i had chest pain on my right side since i was 15 years old. Until now, it happens every few weeks to months. It's like a sharp pain for a few seconds and after that it goes off. and it gets worse when i breathe. The most recent pain happens when i was laughing. And the worse pain i had was when i was lying on bed trying to sleep. I couldnt sleep with lying on the left or right of my body. So what i did was lie straight facing the ceiling. Then until 15 mins or 30 mins only the pain went off. May i know what could be happening to my health ? Could it be any heart disease problem ?

Well looking at your case, it does not seem to be a heart disease as you are young and the pain is situated on the right side of the chest. Did you ever try to do some test like ECG or any other respiratory test? Well, do you have gastric problems at times? Are you eating well? meaning proper time and good meal? How do you feel when u exercise? It pains when u have a deep breath in or just pains randomly? Do tell me all these

Chest pains are common and because this area is connected with nerves throughout the whole body, it might not even be the chest that is the real cause of the pain.
Here is a list of reasons for chest pain that will help you figure out what's causing you discomfort:

I did not do any test before as i thought that it might be expensive for me to bear at the moment. Cuz i've read alot cases saying that after all the scanning, the problem is still there and the solution is no where to find. Gastric problem? Nope. Good meal, probably, sometimes fast food for lunch. But my eating habit is a little messed up with the time, which means sometimes i skip breakfast cuz i sleep till afternoon, and my lunch can be at anytime around 3pm, then dinner time will be just like normal. Exercise is just like normal, i used to play basketball everyday when i was in secondary, and now it's like every once a week. The pain normally comes when i have a deep breath, and at anytime, maybe at home while doing homework or outside fooling around with friends. And it's not always thou, sometimes when i breath deeply, yes, sometimes normal. I thought that it might be due to my liver or gall bladder or gallstone. What do you think ?

Hi.
I've did some research regarding the right side chest pain too. I have also went through the link u sent, so thanks anyway :) But there are so many type of possibilities of illness that i might get, but i can't afford to get every organ in my body checked. So i thought of hopping here and check if there is anyone with the same problem with me or can narrow down my possibilities, thought so i would get a solution.

Thank you very much =)

Well, i do not personally think that liver, gall bladder or gallstone will make you feel a chest pain. Your case, the chest pain can be muscular and you say only when u breath in then it pains. But to rule out anything, without a test it will be difficult.
