I am 18 years old and pretty fit. I run 4 miles a day but the other day I started getting chest pain in the upper left side of my chest when I run. I stop running and it immediately goes away. Vitals are all normal but I’m concerned because it consistently happens about 4 minutes in to my run. I also would like to note that I have observed that although it usually equate with heart rate rising, I was cycling and got my heart rate to 180 and there was no discomfort. I also am not dizzy, nauseous or having trouble breathing. Is this most likely chest wall?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Keeping in view your age and pattern of onset and abolishing of symptoms signify it to be spasm of chest wall muscles.
I would suggest you to have ECG and ETT to rule out sinister problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Onset of pain and its relieving upon rest is consistent with chest muscular wall spasm.
However,I would suggest you to have ECG and ETT to be on safe side.
