Is it okay to feel chest pain after exercising to suddenly without warm up?

So if I right now suddenly started doing 10 push ups. I'll get a weird feeling in my chest, I feel blood flowing really hard, I also feel pounding. It only lasts 3 seconds or so then it goes away and after that, no matter what workout I do. I don't get the feeling again until I take a long break or rest

Edit: I'm 18 Yo, I had ecg / eck and an echo scan for my heart.

Is It OK To?

  • It's called working out. Your heart didn't get a warm up so if you go from 70bpm to 150bpm its going to be uncomfortable.

    • No it's not! A heart attack would last MUCH longer than 3 seconds and wouldn't then go away.

      OP is just being silly doing strenuous exercise without warming up slowly.

        • Oh well, I guess you've never had a heart attack or you'd know the difference and with any luck you won't find out. If you think 3 seconds of pain means a heart attack you're very ignorant

            • I've had a heart attack and I can assure you the pain lasted a lot longer than 3 seconds, it was more like hours until I got to hospital by ambulance and had surgery to have a stent inserted into a blocked artery.

              Even angina, which I still have and which indicates a heart problem, lasts a lot longer than 3 seconds.

              I don't "know it all" but what I do know, I know well, especially when it's something from my personal experience. Happy now?

    • Only if he was at risk of having a heart attack, since he is young and only mildly overweight his heart should be in mostly good working order. That being said suddenly working out the heart will be uncomfortable as suddenly straining any other muscle.

    • I should've added more info, my bad, I'm 18 yo and I had ecg / eck and an echo scan for my heart. I'm overweight, but I'm dropping a lot of weight recently. So I don't think it's something as severe as a heart attack

      • Don't push it...a heart attack can strike at any time and age.

      • If its not a heart issue, it is likley muscular exaustion or some kind of spasm, I am a PT but please don't get diagnosed online. Talk to your doctor! Yell him you want to start exercising and describe how you feel and ask him what he thinks.

        • Problem is, I have no doctor and nobody to ask. Going to the hospital or talking to a doctor is really expensive for me, so I checked myself once and for all to see if I have a heart disease.
          To be specific though, my problem starts if I lift heavy. So I can do 200 jumping jacks in a row without a problem, but if I do a pull up, I'll feel so much discomfort in my chest area for couple of seconds, but it only happens when i'm lifting heavy. So if I'm running or jumping around, I don't feel anything.

          • So you don't have a doctor? Like...at all? That is a problem! I cannot diagnose you online! I am a second year exercise science student, I don't know shit about this! Nit seeing a dictor when you have chest pain, is pretty fucking stupid, and that is just common sense.
