there's a chance it's just anxiety since it goes away with deep breathing exercise and the pain is never too severe (it's very sporadic and random, sometimes seems to be jabbing pain coinciding with each heartbeat), but will get it checked nonetheless. the pain is ALWAYS in the same spot - left-center of chest, about 1/2 inch to the right of my left nipple. i do have a tendency to get worked up easily, and being a college student in times like these is never easy on the mind.
blood pressure is OK at 128/82 currently. seems even when my BP is fine there is something else wrong! if it's not BP, it's chest pains and/or slow pulse
I had 170/100 on Saturday after a 7 hour plane ride and about 12-13 hours of travel overall (had to deal with customs and stuff), but I guess I can attribute that to stress as well since it's come down significantly each day. the chest pains were significantly worse then too. I don't even want to imagine what my BP was in the air (I have a fear of heights)
i mean, come on! i'm a 21 year old who doesn't smoke, drinks only on the weekends, and isn't overweight! thought i wouldn't have to deal with this nonsense til my late 20s at least. i can deal with slightly high blood pressure... but the chest pains, those get me anxious!
