It only lasts for 1 min if that, sometime even 30 seconds. I read about angina, but I'm not sure if this is it. I can only hope to god it isn't.
I've been to ER twice, had two ECG's, two blood tests and an a x ray. It all came back fine apparently. In general I am an anxious person, and have suffered panic attacks in the past. But this differs from a panic attacks, and I fear is more serious. I'm only 17 years old (18 in 2 weeks), and I am not exactly physically fit. I used to play a lot of sports but injured my lower back and couldn't for a year and haven't got back into it. I smoke very occasionally, and don't drink that much. I used to smoke that herbal incense, k2 stuff, but not that much (I know very stupid of me but I didn't think at the time).
I know your all probably sick of hearing from anxious teenagers, but I've got no real information from my doctors. They all told me I'm fine, they didn't even diagnose me with anxiety. All I want is someone to put my mind to rest and tell me what the hell is wrong with me, if anything is. All this uncertainty is killing me.
I have the exact same thing, have it for yrs. ?? I was told I had PAC. I just wanted to ask you, are you smoking Spice?? That stuff that looks like pot? If so, please stop, that can cause heart issues, etc. I am not some old person that is going to harp on you, I was a teen once too and smoked pot, a lot I may add, but to be honest, the real stuff would be better than that crap! Dont do it anymore!!! Get your doc to order you a holter monitor and see what comes back. Also, if you anxious you dont want to smoke pot either, it can cause panic attacks.
