Doctor :   Hi. Noted your age to be 14 and having chest pains along with pains in the arms, armpits and other places as explained by you. The most probably cause at your age can be spasms of the neck muscles with referred pains to the other area. This is possible to know only by a clinical evaluation, examination by a Doctor. Till then I would like you to take tablets for anti-inflammatory properties such as Ibuprofen and apply rubefacient liniments. In spite of your age, it is imperative to undergo one cardiac check-up and ECG immediately. Till you are diagnosed and treated, do not do any physical activity that can increase your problems.
