I Have Chest Pain On The Left Side, It Hurts To Also Touch That Area? Should I Be Concerned.

I have had chest pain for sometime. It is on the left side, and it hurts to press on the area around my heart. I have also been extremely exhausted, I also have a Thyroid condition. I am 33 years old. Should I be concerned?

Hi Marie,

I would contact a physician as soon as possible; chest pain is not something to wait on as it can be a number of serious things. To evaluate your symptoms before seeing the doctor, take a look at our chest pain symptom checker. Please check back and let us know how you're doing!
