Hi Judith. I am sorry to read about your issues with chest pain and difficulty breathing. This is unfortunately quite common in teens with asthma, which is what sounds like is going on with you. I would continue to follow-up with your pediatrician to work on getting your asthma under better control. Sometimes that involves trying different medications and different doses until they find something that works. You also mentioned that anxiety sometimes makes your chest hurt. This is also quite common and can get better once we understand how to better deal with stress and anxiety. I would encourage you to talk to your parents and pediatrician to see if there are some strategies they can have you try to help with this. Thank you again for your question and I hope you feel better soon!
For patients diagnosed with anovulatory bleeding or general heavy menstrual bleeding, doctors recommend daily hormone therapy, often progesterone with or without estrogen. These hormones come in many different forms:
Drs. Borzutzky and Jaffray recently reviewed research on heavy menstruation, and published their findings in JAMA Pediatrics. They found that these methods were all safe and effective ways to treat menstrual problems in most patients.
The L.L.Bean Super Deluxe Book Pack is a 40-liter backpack designed for teens, with a padded laptop sleeve (for a 15-inch laptop), a padded back, and plenty of organizational pockets. Like the Original Book Pack, this pack is sturdy and well made, with heavy-duty 420-denier ripstop nylon. But when this bag is filled, its three cascading pockets expand outward, making it feel bulky and unbalanced. There is also no chest clip or hip belt to help distribute the weight.
If you have asthma, a respiratory condition that causes breathing difficulties, you might experience chest pain. This symptom is common right before or during an asthma attack. The discomfort may feel like a dull ache or a sharp, stabbing pain. Some describe it as if they have a heavy brick sitting on their chest.

Chest pain in teens is uncommon, and it can be due to cardiac or non-cardiac diseases (1). Fortunately, chest pain in teens usually occurs due to non-cardiac conditions. In most cases, it can be due to conditions such as asthma or chest wall pain from muscle or bone injuries or inflammation. However, chest pain is a concerning symptom at any age, and health care providers should evaluate it to diagnose the underlying cause.
Around 2 to 11% cases of chest pain can be of pulmonary origin. Bronchial asthma is one of the major causes of airway-related chest pain in teens. Pulmonary embolism (blockage of arteries in the lungs) can be associated with intense chest pain and shortness of breath.
Rarely, teenagers can have chest pain due to heart problems. It accounts for less than 6% of chest pain cases among teens. Conditions affecting the oxygen supply of the cardiac muscle can cause chest pain due to lactic acidosis. This type of chest pain is called angina.
It is recommended to restrict physical activities until the cardiac evaluation is completed. Some teens have to use a Holter monitor or transtelephonic monitor for two days or up to the suggested time to find the sudden onset of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia).
Most teens with chest pain require prescription medication for pain relief or to treat the underlying conditions. You may ask your teen to follow the following home care measures, along with the treatment (9).
The underlying symptoms of chest pain in teens could be cardiac or non-cardiac, possibly due to a respiratory issue or a muscle strain. Either way, you should not ignore chest pains in any age group. If your teen has been complaining about discomfort in the chest or if you notice constant sweating, rapid heartbeat, or shortness of breath, it is safe to consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis. The treatment depends on the underlying factor and its severity. In addition, a balanced diet and regular exercises help reduce stress in teens.
Back acne can range from mildly annoying to very painful. These back zits can take time to treat, especially if you play a sport that requires you to wear heavy equipment or padding on your back. To prevent back acne, always clean your skin after you sweat and change into a clean, dry shirt after a workout. Also, try to limit the friction and pressure on your back by avoiding equipment that rubs against your skin. If back pimples are painful or they keep returning, see your healthcare provider.
A teen gets a dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine last month at Holtz Children's Hospital in Miami. Nearly 7 million U.S. teens and preteens (ages 12 through 17) have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine so far, the CDC says. Eva Marie Uzcategui/Bloomberg via Getty Images hide caption
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that everyone 12 and older get vaccinated against COVID-19, and the rollout is well underway: According to the CDC last week, around 7 million U.S. teens and preteens (ages 12 through 17) had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine so far.
Still, soon after the Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of Pfizer's vaccine in young people, federal agencies began receiving reports of mild chest pain or other signs of possible heart inflammation (known as myocarditis) in a small percentage of teens and young adults soon after vaccination.
According to the CDC, after a meeting of expert advisors discussed the data Wednesday, more than 300 cases of heart inflammation have been documented after the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The cases have been seen mostly in teens and young adults between 12 and 39 years old, the agency says. Symptoms can include chest pain or pressure and a temporarily abnormal ECG and blood test results.
Pediatric cardiologist Stuart Berger of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics, says vaccine-related myocarditis in teens is not all that worrisome. "Although they appear with some symptoms of chest pain, and maybe some findings on EKGs, all of the cases we've seen have been on the mild end of the spectrum," he says.
Chest congestion can be extremely discomforting. If not treated in time, it can lead to severe infections in the respiratory tract. A person suffering from congested chest may most commonly experience pain in chest or throat, build-up of phlegm, making the chest feel really heavy. Extreme cases can even make swallowing of food difficult.
Abnormally heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding can have many causes. Possible causes of menorrhagia fall into three categories: uterine-related problems, hormone-related problems, and other illnesses or disorders.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, can treat dysmenorrhea or painful menstrual cramps. However, some NSAIDs, such as aspirin, can increase the risk of bleeding and may not be suitable for people with heavy periods.
Treatments to reduce abnormally heavy bleeding depend on the underlying cause, but they can include hormonal birth control, hormonal therapy, and drugs that reduce the amount of bleeding. Sometimes, a doctor may recommend a surgical procedure to reduce or stop bleeding if other treatments do not prove effective.
Having a heavy dresser tip and fall on top of you can be very dangerous. If you have children in your home, they might try to climb the drawers while playing or trying reach something stored on top of the dresser. The best way to prevent a dresser from tipping is to anchor it to the wall.
Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. But the bigger your twins are, they can cause continuous tension on the shoulder, neck, and back muscles, leading to nagging pain. Large or heavy breasts pull your body forward all the time and literally get in the way of things we love doing. Not to forget, the bra strap marks at the end of the day, boob sweat, and even running is a pain! Heavy-breasted ladies crave leading a healthy lifestyle or being passionate about sports. Hence, many women consider breast reduction surgery to get rid of extra fat tissue from their twins. However, these simple exercises can help you reduce breast size at home!
Often breast size is determined by a mix of genetic and hormonal factors. One of the reasons is hormonal changes that can be the reason for the growth of breasts in the human body. The estrogen and progesterone levels in a body affect breasts to grow in size and it becomes heavy. Other than hormonal factors, an unhealthy and unfit lifestyle leads to weight gain which also affects breast size. Other factors that cause breasts to grow large are:
Women with heavy breasts should include stretching and mobility work in their regular workout regime for strengthening their shoulder and back muscles. This will also help eliminate the back pain and prevent the risk of any muscle injury while working out.
For a lower arm or wrist fracture (left), carefully place a folded newspaper, magazine, or heavy piece of clothing under the arm. Tie it in place with pieces of cloth. A lower leg or ankle fracture (right) can be splinted similarly, with a bulky garment or blanket wrapped and secured around the limb. 59ce067264
