  4. Thank you so much for the information. My son had chest pain over the weekend, and it was very frightening. He had been sick recently, and the doctor said the pain was caused by all the coughing he did. That being said, I wonder, what other kind of things should I be aware of to look for that might indicate heart disease?

  7. my 15 year old niece is complaining of chest pain, it was so bad that she said it feels like her heart is being crushed she took a bath and it sort of helped but the pain hasn’t completely gone away. I checked her pulse and its 64. Her pulse is slow and it skips beats a lot. Should I take her into the hospital?

  8. i am 18yr old and have chest pain at random places at random times and quite sharp and stabbing .my fear took me to the cardiologist who laughed it off saying it was muscle pull but can a muscle pull continue this loong ? i have been suffering since 3-4 months now and all the doctors take it lightly saying there is no medicine for it… how long can unexplained chest pain continue? and is it harmful ? and why does this happen ? will yoga help ?

  12. I’m typing on my phone so let me clear up some of what I said. The pain is not extremely bad, I can bare it, but is extremely uncomfortable. And because of asthma and mitral valve prolapse is what I believe it’s called, I wanted to ask. And I forgot to mention I get tired even when I haven’t done anything.
