What is the outlook for people with precordial catch syndrome?

ANSWER

Children may get precordial catch syndrome when they’re as young as 6 years old. The pain may happen only once in a lifetime, or it may come back several times during the same day or over a period of years.

This type of pain tends to disappear by the time people are in their 20s.
