Patient :Hi, I am an 18 year old, overweight (260lbs) male and have been feeling a sharb stabbing in the left side of my chest, along with a burning sensation in my stomach. I am prone to panic attacks, but am so scared I'm having a heart attack. The pain comes every once in a while and is on the left side of my chest. This all happened after eating a big meal.
