I am a 21-year-old, overweight male, who has been experiencing chest pain for several months. I first went to the emergency room in October, and after an EKG and chest X-rays, I was sent home because everything was normal and the doctor said it was chest wall pain. Last month I went to my campus health center because the pain was a little more heavy (best way i could describe it) and after a lipid panel, the doctor said it was probably just probably acid reflux. Well now, I have the same heavy, sometimes stinging (when I stretch or sneeze), pain in my chest but also some pain in my shoulders and headaches (and strange stiffnesses in my head and neck that come and go). There are also pains in my throat that are somewhat sharp. None of the pain is continuous but they are persistent. Also, I had an odd occurrence this morning. When I woke up from a nightmare, my body completely froze and it felt as if my heart stopped beating and I lost my breath (I guess it was just a panic attack from the realism of the dream).
My blood pressure has never been extremely high (120-85 the last two times I have been to the doctor). Still I am afraid something could be seriously wrong with my heart. Anybody got any idea what could be going on?
