Question Pain in back, chest and neck - September 18th 2013, 07:01 PM

Hey, I'm a young teenage girl, and at school today, at around 2pm, I got a bit of backache. I thought nothing of it as it wasn't extreme, and carried on until I got home at 4pm. I then started to get small chest pains, and thought nothing of that, too, as I assumed it was some sort of growing pains. After my tea at 5pm, I did some running on my treadmill as I haven't been doing much exercise recently, and afterwards I realised my chest pains had got worse. I laid down on the sofa and breathed deeply, finding the pain worsened when I did so. I then started to freak out and searched online for possible causes. I found lots of links about heart attacks and all kinds of things relating to lung conditions and problems in the arteries. The pain spread to the back of my neck as well and I really started to worry. I had another rest but couldn't seem to make the pain go away. I had a 5 minute panic attack - which I'm prone to - and began to question whether or not my symptoms are related to anxiety or a heart problem. It's about 8pm now and I still have back, chest and neck pains. I'm not sure what these could be related to and I'm extremely worried. If anyone has any advice, I'll be grateful to hear it. I didn't think things like heart attacks could last for hours, so that's why I'm debating whether or not I am having one of those. Thank you.

The best and most important thing to do is never self-diagnose otherwise you'll end up giving yourself so many possible problems which are untrue. Usually, chestpains that can go through towards the back can be a sign of indigestion or heartburn through eating food too quickly. The best thing you can do if your problem persists is to speak to your GP and get yourself diagnosed properly as they're professionals who are trained to help find out what exactly is wrong.

Life is for living, not for losing.
