    Hi, I'm an 18-year-old girl and I get occassional chest pains. They can be quick and sharp and then go away, but tonight I got pains SO severe and sharp non-stop for 50 minutes with shortness of breath and a pain in my stomach. Should I worry? I've gotten the occasional chest pains when I breathe really deeply sometimes, and other times it just comes like shooting pains really quick, but tonight wasn't the first time for severe chest pain. I asked my doctor but he really just brushed it off like it was nothing. What would you recommend?
