I'll be sure to try that, thanks!

Well, my family has a history of things like congestive hesrt failure, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. My pain varies, typically it feels like my heart is working too hard and blood isn't getting through, because my arms start to go numb near my armpits in my neck, which happens to my dad whenever he needs to get a stint in his heart for a clogged artery. Any tests the doctors see shows that it's normal, though they only take my blood pressure and listen to my heart. They've only done a few ECGs on me but they always seem normal. Even the cardiologist i went to saw nothing and things I'm exaggerating. They all think it's because of stress or things i eat, but the pain happens all the time, no matter what I'm doing. I honestly wish they could find something out, because the pain I've felt has only gotten worse this year.

Thank you so much for responding! I have asked my doctor, and they don't seem to believe me either. I want to go to a cardiologist or someone more experienced in heart problems to see if they can find anything wrong.

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.
