  1. Hi, I have been struggling with my nineteen year old daughter for months with severe chest pain, and fatigue. she gets winded when walking up and down stairs, and can’t catch her breath after a mile run. She has seen a cardiologist, and a pulmonologist, both of whom have said her heart and lungs are healthy, and no asthma, yet the pain and breathing difficulties persist. Now, she is complaining of tenderness in the area of her spleen. She has had recent blood work, and all is normal. To my knowledge she abstains from drugs and alcohol, and does not smoke. She is not a complainer, and has run 25 miles on a broken ankle, only complaining of some pain….. I am at my wits end. I don’t know were else to turn. Last night she called crying begging me to help make the pain stop. Any suggestions??

  2. My ten year old daughter for last 2 years has complained of chest hurting. This acquires at no given notice just occurs out of the blue. Her father had WPW and a great grandma with Huntington Disease. She was born early due to heart rate very low and under stress, so had an emergency C-section. I am wondering if she may have something wrong or if this is something not to worry about.
