I'm looking for a potential cause for my chest pain, or just reassurance that I am completely fine to ease my nerves.
- Chest pains are under the left breast plate; no noticeable transfer of pain. Other random body pains occur (neck or jaw on right side) but not during the episodes of chest pain.
- Pain can last a few seconds or several minutes, not constant but more like contractions or waves.
- I have not noticed any correlation with physical activity; usually happens when at rest, getting ready for bed, or just sitting around, hence the "Random" title.
- Today was a little bit different, occurring when exposed to heat (ie: immediately upon entering the shower, walking outside, exiting the cool car,) but not easing my thoughts of previous experiences. I am left uneasy simply in wondering if I am due in for a heart attack.
24, female, thin, not a smoker, decently healthy diet, low but 'normal' blood pressure, no diabetes, no family history of heart disease, BUT not very active. Could inactivity really be my only problem?
