Hi. I am 27 year old and recently face this problem in two days (17-JUN-09). I usually carry a laptop bag which weights around 3Kgs in my shoulder bag and travel to office by bike. Recently i face a problem of chest pain in the middle of the heart that is left side., and feel indigestion the main thing is when walk for 10 minutes or climb a stairs., i feel like have shortness of breath and i start to breath via my mouth., i didnt had this problem in the past and can you suggest me what would be the cause for it.

Anon, there are different things that can cause shortness of breath, but since it is combined with chest pain (which you link directly to your heart), I really, really want you to see a doctor about this very soon.

Is that possible?

And are you saying that these problems just started two days ago, and you never felt them before?

The other questions I would ask you (have you called that doctor yet?) are whether you have done anything extra-strenuous, whether you have eaten anything very different from your normal diet, whether you have strained a muscle in other ways or whether you have started any new medicines or routines in the last few days that might be responsible for the pain and shortness of breath you're feeling. And I'd wonder if you had allergies, or had had a cold recently.

Do you have a doctor or can we help you find one? Where do you live?
