I am a 22 year old who has been having really random chest pains for a while. They are located in the left side mainly. Sometimes located more towards my armpt area and above my breast. They are quick and then go away. sometimes I'll have a few then it just goes away. I went to a dotor she did an EKG and ran blood tests but everything came back normal. I don't smoke I don't have high blood pressure. I don't know what to do and it makes me nervous.

This also happens to me, I'm 21 yo f and get these random severe chest pains, crushing pain that becomes tearing pain with each breath. I try not to breath much and it dissolves within minutes. I'm reluctant to see a doctor as blood tests would most likely come back normal for me also. I've had chest pain before, but not this consistent and not this severe.

Hi Anon

I do encourage you to see a doctor - blood tests are probably less important than testing your heart and getting xrays (even of the lungs) as well as a stress test and other tests to see what may be going on.

Crushing pain like yours needs to be evaluated.

Hi Taylor,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Chest pains at this young of age is pretty uncommon please keep following up with your physician. Are you under stress? Is this anxiety?


Please keep us posted.
