Hi everyone,
I'm a very scared 22 year old female. For over a year I have been experiencing chest related pain. The pain seems to be more on the surface then deep down in my chest and is deeply exacerbated when I push on certain pressure points on my chest. I am overweight but work out three times a week and never have shortness of breath or chest pain when I work out I also have normal bloodpressure and heart sounds. I also have no history of early heart disease in my familty. Please help.

Lilli welcome to the HW. Go to the Doctor. All that pain could be from working out. Your body is telling you something is wrong, check it out. I'ts always better to be safe now than sorry later. Good luck and i'll keep you in my prayers. DELTA

Hi lillibet, Welcome to Healing Well forum.  I agree with Delta here, you probably need to get checked out by a physician.  Did you notify your doctor of your exercise plan before starting?

Hi lillibet :)
See your doctor, but until you do, here is some information you might take a look at. Also I know that heart related chest pain is not brought on by pressing on the chest area. (I am not a physician, so I don't KNOW anything but I think :) )
Background: Chest pain is a common reason for parents to seek medical attention for their children. Annually, physicians evaluate approximately 650,000 cases of chest pain in patients aged 10-21 years, a number that may reflect overwhelming concern about chest pain as a manifestation of cardiac disease and cancer in older patients.
Costochondritis is a common cause of chest pain in children and adolescents. The condition is characterized as an inflammatory process of 1 or more of the costochondral cartilages that causes localized tenderness and pain of the anterior chest wall. Most cases of costochondritis are idiopathic. The remaining cases may result from costochondral irritation due to direct trauma, aggressive exercise that caused a strain, or a prior upper respiratory tract infection with cough that caused repeated stretching and strain at the costochondral junction.
Costochondritis is a relatively benign and usually self-limited condition. Patients are often evaluated initially in the ED or, with acute conditions, in their primary care physician's office.
