Heart worries
« on: December 28, 2013, 03:16:16 PM »
I know as an 18 year old I shouldn't worry about a heart attack but that's what it keeps feeling like!  Constant pressure in the center of my chest. Like my sternum, I constantly prod it feeling for my heartbeat so maybe that's why there's discomfort but I'd still like reassurance.

Most likely the muscles in your chest and not your heart. Possibly posture related

The sternum is very sensitive and you touching it is probably making it worse!  My boyfriend did the same a few weeks ago and once he stopped, so did the pain! I'm guilty of prodding my head and feeling lumps and bumps! If you had a heart attack I think you'd have a very heavy crushing pain that was unbearable with possible pain down left arm, radiating to back and jaw. I am a secretary to a cardiologist and I am sure you would know if you were having a heart attack! Sounds musculoskeletal. Try and relax and stop touching!
