I have another question too. Sometimes I get lil pains in my chest. It never radiates down my arm or anything. I dont get any other symptoms either just the pain. It freaks me out but I really dont think it is a heart attack. Do you know what this could be?

Thanks for your question.
Which part of the chest you feel the pain?
Does the pain radiate to your back or arm?

No I do not feel it in my back or arm just in my left side of my chest

THis can be inflammation of the ribcage cartilage causing chest pain.
Heart related symptoms will worsen with exertion and over time shortness of breath, dizziness will also be associated.
Still a EKG can be done to check your heart.
Ibuprofen will help with ribcage related pain.
Chiropractor therapy also may be helpful.
