Hi @isah88, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am sorry to hear about your child having head and shoulder pressure, chest pains and dizziness. It can be scary not knowing what it going on with your child. You will see that I moved your discussion to About Kids and Teens and changed your title to better align with your question. This will allow for members to see your topic before even clicking on the discussion.

Perhaps with a little more information from you, I can find other members who may have experienced a similar problem. Mayo Clinic Connect is a patient-to-patient community – the most important ingredient of Connect is its members, like you. It is not designed to be a community for medical experts to give advice, but is a place to learn from all your shared experiences, insights, suggestions, and tips.

Some questions to answer that might help:
Have you called her pediatrician to discuss this?
How long have the symptoms been going on?
Does she have any other existing medical conditions?
Did all of the symptoms come on at once?
Is there anything that you have found that eases the symptoms?

I look forward to hearing from you.
