Every couple of weeks I get a pain in my jaw that runs up to my ear. Then I get a chest pain which leaves me short of breath. I literally have to stop whatever I am doing. Within 5 minutes all pain subsides but it leaves me feeling weak. I have even gotten this in my sleep. Would any one out there know what this pain is? I have had my heart checked including an ekg and a stress test and the doctor could not find anything wrong.

According to the ECG and stress test the chest pain is probably not originating from the heart. You can consult some dentist for that jaw pain. If there is nothing wrong again, it could be anxiety causing your pains.

So I am 15, and last year in my freshmen French class, I started having jaw pain, but it wasn't lockjaw. Then, for some reason, I got a migraine, which wasn't too uncommon, but I never have jaw pain. Then, chest pain started to occur, and it felt like a hammer was pounding on my chest. I thought I could have been having a heart attack, so I laid down during the class movie, and took shallow breaths while on my back. After about five or ten minutes, all the pain disappeared at once. Could this have been signs of a heart attack or stroke?
