When I got home from working out, after taking a shower (during that entire time I felt perfectly fine),I laid down on my bed, and almost immediately felt a strong throbbing in the middle of my chest. It was not painful, but I did feel pressure and weakness. This lasted for a few seconds, I took a deep breath and it was mostly gone, but I took in a few more deep breaths and I felt ok once again. The problem is, I'm scared. I'm 18 years old and live a reasonably healthy lifestyle. Do I have reason to be worried? Also, what could've caused this feeling? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Such discomforts in chest after working out is fine and likely due to muscle spasm , just take some tylenol and rest and dont strain your body too much. It shall be alright.

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.
