    10 minutes ago i felt fine then all of a sudden there was this sharp pain in my chest. I started to panic which made my heart beat faster making it much worse. It felt like every time i took a breath my ribs were about to cave in. Luckily i know how to calm myself through breathing techniques from the panic attacks i get so im alright now the middle of my chest still feels like someones just punched me hard.

    Ive had sudden rushes of heartbeat and becomeing very light headed out of nowhere but it hasnt been this bad before. Surely there cant be anything wrong i mean im too young for heart problems.

    Anyone else had this before?

    I haven't, but I'd research it through books or online.

    Hope that helps. Keep us updated.

    ive had similar i think, but then i was born with a heart defect

    could there be a chance it was a panic attack but one more severe than you have had before? it could be a good idea to talk to a doctor what ever you think it might be
