Anyone know what pains that are similar to a heart attack ?

Anyone know what pains that are similar to a heart attack might also be related to (chest, back, jaw pain)? I have been having these pains for quite some time now (at least 6 months). The pain starts in my chest and shoots to my spine then up through my jaw and ear. I am 24 and a heart attack seems slim. They did an EKG and an Echocardiogram and they both came back normal. If anyone knows what else it could possibly be, please let me know. I am at a loss.
