Re: Chest pain! Heart or something else?

I am only 20 years old. My cardiologist doesnt think I have any problem with my heart. I just had a stress echo done a couple of weeks ago. I have an event monitor and I was able to turn it on and record during this chest pain. I sent the recording in to a call center but they didnt tell me if they saw anything wrong.

I have been under some stress lately. I can go out and run and exercise just fine. This pain is really starting to get to me. I havent had any for weeks and now it's started up again.

What do I need done to rule out a heart problem??
