I'm 25 YO male, with chest pains for over 1 week now. Since it started, I'm having trouble sleeping. This never happened to me before...Can someone tell me if they ever experienced insomnia when their heart started to fail?

Thank you!

Hello Solid8, at the age of 25 is unlikely that you have a heart disease, unless you were born with one. Your chest pains are probably not related to any heart problem and your young heart is not likely to fail. Your insomnia seems to be related to your worry about having a heart problem. Chest pains and insomnia are common symptoms of anxiety, make an appointment with your family doctor anyway.

I will put my two cents in on this one.  I never thought I would have heart issues at a young age but I do.  I wasn't born with heart issues my genetic hypertension finally showed its ugly face.
But it is true it could be anxiety, stress, plurisy (fluid) and even a gas bubble.  Had them they can hurt like heck.  Insomnia can occur for many many different reasons.  The food we eat, stress, bp and so many other things.
Making an appointment is your best option let a doctor listen to your heart or run a mild EKG on you to be safe.
Hope you make progress
