Hey guys

I am a 22 year old female I have been on Ritalin for 1 year but have stop in December as I was getting horrible side effects. However ever since I have stopped the Ritalin i have been getting dull left sided chest pains, sometimes in the center of the chest too. Also along with the chest pain my left arm feels sore and achy. Sometimes the chest pain goes really near my left armpit (almost a half circle?) and feels strange.

These pains have been progressively getting worse for the last 7 months and just this week I have noticed when i start to brisk walk or run/stress it activates it. And generally when i am doing simple things like walking or doing an activity that requires movement I get out of breath so quickly and my left chest gets sore and have to sit down to 'get over it'. I am not overweight and not active.

Any ideas? Like is it Angina?

Thanx guys =)

I cannot tell you if your pain is angina.  I would kindly suggest after seven months of discomfort you seek out a medical screening exam from your physician.
I wish you  well,
