sharp chest pains

hi not sure if im on the right board for this or not but i keep getting these sharp pains in my chest, ...well actually....its mostly in my chest but i get it on my side every now n then and under my left 1st i thought that it might just be growing pains, as im 18....but usually growing pains r just really sharp pains...arent they?....i get sharp pains but they last a couple of seconds then turn into, theres somethign there and its being squeezed and tightens up.....i get it after ive eaten or when im walking or sitting...or just lying down

...its very unpredictable n i dont kno when its gunna went away for a couple of weeks but then came bck and im not really sure whats wrong if anything, r these just growing pains? ....i keep meaning to go see the doc but keep forgettin, because the pain has gone so i dont think about it and when it comes its too late to i never get round to it so just thought id ask if anyone ere knew what it might be??

thnx in advance

Re: sharp chest pains

i think you should call the doc anyway and make an appt. it may be nothing, it may be a gastric problem. the only way to find out is see the doc, tell him/her what is going on. they will probably do an ekg on you and may send you for a stress test.
this happened to me as well. i felt like someone had me in a bear hug, twice in one day. i called the doc, they took me in right away and did the ekg which was normal. then set me up for a stress test which was normal as well.
at least i know that there is nothing wrong with my heart.
go see the doc, it can't hurt and better to get checked out.
good luck

Could just be trapped air. I get that once in awhile too and I'm your age.
