    Daughter In Law had bad chest pains today while at work..she is only 23. She went to the doctor and they said it was inflamation around the heart.....anybody know what this means? Gave her motrin and told her to come back in 2 weeks. What bothers us is her Father died at 40 from a heart related illness and her 19 year old sister has had a heart attack and 2 strokes.

    Well, make sure that when she goes back, she informs the doctor of these family history issues. Also, if she has any problems breathing, or an overly heavy feeling on her chest, get her to the E.R. ASAP. Make sure the GP refers you to a cardiologist, so some basic tests can be run, to take a good look at her heart.
