My name is Hayden, I am a Fifteen year old Male. I have recently been getting many symptoms around my chest area (and by recently i mean the past month) I am overweight, I weigh 104 Kg/229.28 lbs and am around the 180 cm mark. Also i dont exersice very much, i was planning to do a fitness program my P.E teahcer gave me to inprove my fitness for my sport (NRL Australian sport) but now i am too scared to exersice as i believe something will happen.
I have been to the doctor which told me to get a blood test and if the symptoms persist, i would be scheduled for an stress test and some other tests. I also went to the hospital once and was told reflux. On my last doctor visit I was too young to have a heart attack (Which I know is a load of rubbish) and told me it was a migrain attack since most of the symptoms were on my left sides.
These symptoms are divided into last night and long term (1 Month Max:

Cheers for the tips, i will try that frozen berry idea or at least a semi-bearable tasting fruit and hopefully develop a liking for the taste of fruit. On the drinking question, sadly i dont drink much juice, but a month ago when the pains began i completely stopped drinking soft-drink and only drinking water. And would Orange Juice suffice? or are there better options avaliable?
Also, if i can remember correctly my cholesterol number was between 2.5-3.0, which my doctor said was slightly high and that i should go on a low fat diet. That tip with the meat will go well thanks, i usually ate around 3 pieces the size of my complete hand, and if it was pork i would eat until full.
Onto that wholegrain bread, Would vegimite be okay as the spread?, because i love it (Supposedly rich in Vitamin B1 B2 B3 And Folate). Also what serving would you recommend with a meal, 1 Slice?
That notepad idea would seem a bit out of the way for me as i dont tend to keep habits sadly. Thanks for informing me about what i can do to better my health, its nice to see people who look out for others because they don't want them in the same position they were in. I also hope your good health will continue and that you will not have any problems in the future.View Thread
All the symptoms started around the 27th of November. No symptoms seem to progress or become more frequent, but they pick up at night-time usually after a hot shower. Most symptoms started around the 27th of November while the arm pains, choking feeling and various pins and needles started around the 27th of December
My typical week of food comprises of meat such as steak, pork and occasionly lamb. Other foods i could eat are Pastas. I eat absolutely no fruit, i have been cursed with the ability to hate the taste of everything i eat, On video games id say i spend 8-12 A day playing. I watch tv about 1 hour before going to sleep which i go to sleep around 3-5am and wake up at around 2-4pm.
My blood test results came back good besides i slightly high Cholesterol, a low total of what he called good Cholesterol. The opinion still stands about Reflux and that it has been coupled with stress, but i feel like this opinion is wrong (no offence to my doctor). I can be completely calm when these symptoms hit which doesn't make sense to me.View Thread
