I am a 24 year old female who has always been relativity healthy minus a few issues. For the last 6 days I have had bad chest pains in the left side of my chest and sometimes in the middle as well. My heart will start pounding so hard i can actually see my chest moving with every beat, As well as every pulse point on my body is pounding too. I start to find it very hard to breathe which is cause of the pain. Every once and a while I get really shaky too. I checked my beats per minute and they were 110 each time I checked.
I know its not a panic attack as I have had them in the past and this is very different. I also recently found out that heart problems run in my family. Mainly high blood pressure. Although my grandfather did have a massive heart attack and had to get bypass surgery a few years back.
I went to the doctor yesterday and all he did was give me an ativan and told me to come back the following day (today) the ativan did nothing, didn't think it would.
I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what their outcome was?
Any help would be great
