I have a pain in my chest that feels really tight and where I can't take a deep breath, which then goes away after a minute or two, what should I do?

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about this

Since how long you have this problem?

Any other symptom?

Do you have stress and anxiety?

Hi, thank you for your response

I just notice it when it happens, I am not sure how long it has been. I have a stressful job, but nothing out of the ordinary

Thanks for the details

Most likely it is due to stress and nothing concerning

I would suggest that you do get an ECG to be more assured

But at your age and the type of pain you mentioned it does not look concerning at all

Please do let me know if you have any other question
