Heart Pain in young people
Hi, so I'm a 15 year old that has had severe chest pain for a year now. It's gotten progressively worse, and I've been in the hospital numerous times, but the doctors brush it off everytime I tell them I'm in pain. My dad thinks I'm a hypochondriac, and my mom has stopped worrying, but i know this is something. We have a history of heart issues in my family (congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol) but no one seems to take the fact that I'm in pain seriously. I get dizzy, get numb in my arms and neck, i feel under-oxygenated, and it feels like my heart is pumping too hard and too fast, almost like it's working too hard. It makes it difficult to breathe and lift anything as well. The pain feels tight, and heavy, and it's constant, but then there are sudden added sharp pains that overlap the constant pains that start to burn. The pain happens when i exercise, or when I'm relaxing. I don't know what's wrong, but i want someone to take note of this and actually find out why these pains are so prominent and constant.
