Hello I am an 18 year old male with severe chest pain on the left side that radiates to my left upper back and pain in my left side of neck, arm and jaw. With any type of physical activity the pain gets worst then I start to experience shortness of breath and light-headedness. also I have extreme heart palpitations 24/7. about a year ago I took these pills for about a month an a half and then I smoked a joint with my friend. I was rushed into the hospital and they told me i was fine. ever since that incident this pain started from doing vigorous activity then slowly got worse and here i am a year later. I also believe i got heart disease because i took these pills called Vimovo and they gave me extreme amount of chest pain and I read online do not take these pills if you have heart disease. I also got many ECGs done, ECHO and a holter moniter and they say everything is normal. I am also going in for a stress test in 2 days and the test is gonna probably come back negative saying im all good. my pain also worsens with smoking, specially marijuanna.
They tryed to label me with anxiety but I have been on 2 different type of antidepressents and an anti anxiety medication and im truly a calm person who is not that anxious.also had alot of therapy and they said im a pretty straight kid.
i need help! first i want ur opinon then i need your help on how i can convince my doctor to get me an angiogram because i am positive i have an underline heart condition that is not being picked up. and if the angiogram is negative then ill know these doctors are right and if it is positive they can handle it from there and i can tell everyone im not crazy.

also i had a blood test while i was experience those extreme chest pains from vimovo, i do not know what the blood test was about but they said i had a high amount of white blood cells. but they did not seem concerened about my heart. please help me out here.

What type of stress test are you going in for? Basic Treadmill or a Nuclear Treadmill? Don't dismiss anxiety though. I like you thought I was a real laid back guy but anxiety has hit me like a freight train. Plus you seem to young to be having a heart issue but keep following up with your doc's.
