Re: Chest/Heart Pain

Smoking causes your arteries to contract. It may be causing some sort of spasming in the arteries of your heart. I would talk to your doctor about ways to quit the smoking. Anxiety and smoking together is very taxing on your heart. Maybe some relaxation methods would be helpful too.
Be sure to let your parents know how you are feeling. They know you best and should be able to determine whether you need to seek medical attention.
