I'm 16 years old and I had a large grass fed steak with fat and also took my father's steak's fat because he hates it but can't get enough of the taste of fat :3. But afterwards for the first time i felt funny in the chest, like a uncomfortable feeling but no pain.
Today we visited my uncle's and I love chicken skin so I ate that and all the fatty drippings off the chicken. I feel the same as I did yesterday but slightly worse and it's worrying me.
I'm too young to have a heart attack or similar right ...? :(
Thanks in advance :)

Simplest answer, you overate. Overeating on a heavy fat meal can cause this sensation. When it digests, you'll feel better.
Don't hesitate to see a doctor if this is worrying you.
To me, it sounds like indigestion. You can feel pressure in the chest, maybe a slight burning (maybe not), maybe a little bit short of breath... If you eat a ton of food this is more likely.
could be gall bladder issues after a fatty meal. im no doc so why dont you read up on this and see if it is in the differential diagnosis.
You need to seek a Dr. regarding this.
You are most likely 99.9999999% too young to have an MI (blockage), but, somethings wrong if your having chest pain at 16. It could be a number of things.
Go to the Dr.
Wow I didn't know there were other 16 year olds on this site. Furthermore, I have got those chest pains when I feel I have overate. Previously I was raw vegan. What was you diet like previous to Paleo? Do you live in Canada?
Psychological? You're eating "bad" (in a conventional sense) fat and maybe you're imagining chest pain as you make the "fat = heart attack" connection.
Ask your dad if he salted the steaks or what spices he placed on them... Too much salt or some spice could be the culprit.
Sounds like overeating and maybe a little low-grade heartburn. Take it easy for a couple days. eat slightly smaller meals. if the feeling persists or gets worse, or if you feel short of breath or have pain radiating to your back, jaw or down one arm, see a doctor.
A seemingly-healthy, non-morbidly-obese teenage girl who is not abusing drugs has a near-zero chance of having a heart attack, but that doesn't mean nothing is wrong.
Hey, relax. At age 16, and on a Paleo diet, no less, you don't have to worry about SAD problems like heart attacks. Can you describe the feeling further? Where does it hurt? Does this happen every time you eat animal fat (two times a causation doth not make)? Love your name, by the way.
