Why did you go to your doctor in thr first place, do you know which tests he was running?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
i was having chest pains.He told me it was just blood test.
Expert:  Pauline replied 8 years ago.

At your age it is unlikely that he was running blood tests for heart attack, but it is possible that this was a standard full blood count and you may be borderline anemic. This could cause chest pains in some cases, and would need a follow up blood test to check that levels had not dipped any further.

Keep a diary of occasions of when the pain occurs and how long it lasts. Do ensure that you eat a balanced healthy diet.
