Patient :Hello, for years I've experienced sharp pains in my chest that usually last up to a minute and then taper off. Sitting helps and laying down makes it worse. I've had testing and a heart monitor that detected an irregular heart beat. I wasn't taken very seriously by the professional I saw and was told it was anxiety. I've also been experiencing pain in my arms recently.They ache and feel heavy. I am 17. Any insight is appreciated.
