chest pain in child

after exercise. So dd and I always walk to school but today we skipped and galloped and jogged the whole way there. After she started complaining of chest pain (when she was going in school). I sent her in but I came home and just called the peds. office. The nurse said that they see that a lot and it's usually heart burn or an upper respiratory infection. pulled muscle or some sort. 

So, has your child had chest pain? And what was the cause?

It just worried me because as an adult you would probably go to the ER with chest pain so I didn't know if it's any different with a child. But I still told the nurse to make an appointment to just have some check up and see how everything is.

Could be asthma. Was it cold outside? My chest always burns something fierce if I do any sort of cardiovascular exercise in the cold.

Yeah, it was a chilly morning. In the 30's.

As the nurse said it could be several things..but if it was my child I would have her looked at ,you never know because heart problems in children aren't always detected in regular check ups..there have been a few cases here where the child past away due to heart failure because parents didn't know they had heart problems..not trying to scare you in any way.,good luck..

Make sure they consider asthma then as well. Exercise induced asthma is no fun when it's undiagnosed, especially once they start hitting PE classes. Cold weather can aggravate it as well. Hope they can figure out what's wrong with her.

Thank you and I will definitely mention asthma since I heard it runs in families and there are many people in my family with asthma.
