I just thought I should post that my girlfriend took me to the emergency room last night and they did blood tests and another EKG and everything was find, in fact I feel better now. Although they do have me on a 24 hour heart monitor and I have to have a stress test next week. The doctor at the hospital didn't know what caused it they said sometimes things like that happen to people.
: I am 25 and have had several blood pressure checks by the doctor because it has been high. I had an EKG and blood tests and everything was normal but ever since I got up this morning I have had this sharp pain in the center of my chest and I have felt like I have been breathing harder than normal. Is it possible for someone my age to have a heart attack due to high blood pressure? I go to the doctor Tuesday to see if he's going to put me on medicine for my blood pressure, and I was wondering if I should go to the doctor before that to see why I have been having this chest pain. It's not all the time, but when it does come it hurts a lot. I'm scared. I don't know what's happening to me.
