I am sorry to hear about your symptoms. It sounds as if you already have a complex cardiac history that may play a role in your current symptoms. In order to provide an accurate answer, a doctor
would need to have access to your prior medical records and also review your entire medical history. You would also need to undergo a physical exam. I encourage you to schedule an appointment with a cardiologist
to further evaluate your symptoms. After collecting this information, the doctor can make recommendations on the most appropriate steps moving forward.
Chest pressure and shortness of breath have many potential causes. Pulmonary issues, such as asthma
, can cause airway constriction, which limits the ability of oxygen to pass through your lungs into your bloodstream. Cardiac issues can also cause your symptoms. It sounds as if you had an arrhythmia in the past. A recurrence of the arrhythmia can cause chest pressure and shortness of breath if your heart beats too fast to pump blood to your other organs. Although rare at your age, abnormalities or blockages of the coronary arteries can cause similar symptoms. Congestive heart failure can cause these symptoms if the heart muscle is unable to keep up with the demand placed upon it. Ultimately, you will need to see a cardiologist to discuss these symptoms.
