Why am i getting chest pains? All my life I've

Patient : Why am i getting chest pains? All my life I've struggled with chest pains the doctors said it was due to my asd (atrial septal defect) which basically means you have a hole in your heart. After some years they said it closed up but i kept having bad chest pains at 14 when i couldn't tolerate them anymore and i was on a trip back to my home in Cuba i went to the doctor there and he said i have 2 holes ones a 2 the other a 4. Thena a few months later when i was back in the US i went to doctor and they said i had nothing then when i was 16 i had the worst pain I've ever felt in my life i honestly felt like this was a heart attack it it was something no one could bear or ignore so i had to go to the hospital and all they told me was that i had low blood pressure and they looked over the surface of things and said everything was fine keep in mind this pain was nothing near fine i genuinely believed my life was in danger the pain was so much and well I've still been dealing with it I'm 17 now and im just scared that it's something they're overseeing and when they finally find it one day it'll be too late. Thank you so much for your help.
