Patient :I get chest pain directly where my heart is when I run for short periods. I'm not a very active guy, and I'm not over weight, but lately I have decided to try and get in better shape. When I run very short distances I get that sharp pain in my chest where it fells like it's right where my heart is, but when I stop running the pain stops immediately. Could it be just because I'm a little out of shape? Should I be worried?
