Extreme chest pain.

So there are times when I get this pain in my chest that is so bad I just had to hold still until it stops, because the pain makes it awful to move. Its just random and I don't get it.

My Mom is a doctor and she told me that sometimes you get air bubbles around your heart which can cause this. Had anyone else experienced this? It hasn't happened for awhile and Mom says I should just wait and see since theres not much I can do about it.

It could also be angina or a huge number of coronary disorders. You need to go the a doctor for and EKG or MRI right away. You might need a stress test, too.

Please don't play around with this. You need to have this diagnosed ASAP.

This, and shame on your mom for not doing more about it, especially with being a doctor.

Yeah, you should totally listen to people in the internet instead of your mom, who is a doctor

There are so many things out could be..

I was a paramedic for eight years. I have shoved drugs into the veins of and defibrillated many people who had symptoms just like the ones described. But go ahead, Kivi, encourage no action.

Which is why she should go to the doctor.....were not trying to give advice. Were just saying, if its worrying you, go get it checked out.

When I was a teen I had the very same thing. Felt like a knife in my ribs. Hurt to breathe for a minute or so, then it went away. I was told exactly what your mom said , only my dad, a general doctor MD, called it "growing pains". He said it's common and not dangerous.

If it happened very much, and you had lightheadedness or other symptoms, I would ask to be checked out. Does your mom know how often it happens?

My dad never took us to see a doctor (him being one) . He always said, "leave it alone, you'll get better on your own." We'd have to be nearly on the floor unable to stand up to be sick enough to see a doctor. Yet, he cared for other people's kids day in and day out.

That's actually an underdeveloped muscle, do more cardio and it goes away.

Tinylily - My Mom is the same way. She's always taken care of us from home. I talked to some of my classmates today and they had mentioned feeling the same thing every now and then. I tell my Mom everytime it happens.

I believe it has to do with growing up because I have never once had this happen since reaching my full adult body. I remember it used to catch me by surprise and scare me with the sharpness of it.

My older daughter has symptom similar to yours, but she just turned 30. However, for her, those sudden sharp pains don't go away for a very long time - though they do hurt less after a while. The doctor told her she has chronic/recurrent pleurisy - an inflamation of the lining of the lungs. It tends to go along with her lupus and is a pretty good indicator that it's time to adjust her meds.
