Unhappy Possible Angina at young age?

The last two weeks I have been experiencing tightness, gasy-ness, strange awkward feeling in the middle of my chest, and strange pressure right below the breast. I have been researching online and it matches the symptoms of Angina. I am a 25 yr old female, 5'1 and 155lbs. I am not considered obese and I eat little meat, lots of veggies and fruit. I am kinda scared since it could be a heart problem. I went to the hospital the other night and all they did was blood work and tested my urine, I was pretty upset with they said nothing was wrong with me but they barely did anything. It gets painful at times, its hard to sleep. I was told that I just was gassy and need to take something to use the bathroom more, but I go pretty regular. Any suggestions? Maybe I should go to a cardiologist? Thanks!

Re: Possible Angina at young age?

It could be reflux- particularly if it happens to you at night when lying down. It would be unlikely to be Angina at your age, but of course you need to KNOW really in order to dismiss it & have peace of mind!

Have you noticed that it is worse with exertion or exercise? This tends to be the case with Angina. I suffer quite badly from reflux & find it can be bad when I'm lying flat- very unpleasant! It helps to lie on the left side I've found & take an antacid like Gaviscon or Mylanta- or just sip room temperature water!

You need to find the cause of the pain though- both Angina & Reflux (GERD) are conditions that need both diagnosis & treatment! Good luck & let us know how you go!
