Chest Pain, But Not Sure From What ...

I am 16, male, and alight smoker (3-6 a day) for about 7 months. Recently I have been having chest pain on my left side, it almost feels as if it is muscle pain, and it kind of moves from my back to over my heart. The pain began after I took a fall on my skateboard, on my left side, the fall wasn't serious, but the next morning, my chest hurt on the left side from taking deep breaths and moving my back or left arm. Two days after the pain began it still hurts on and off, but no where near as painful. I do not what is causing this pain smoking or the fall. If anyone could ell me whats going on it would be very helpful as i am nervous about this pain.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is muscular pain and is due to fall.
Take pain killer like advil to combat this 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.
