Pulmonologist 's  Response
If all tests related to various organs involved in causing chest pain have been done and are normal, i feel it could be a musculoskeletal pain. Does he do some heavy physical activity or did he injure himself in the past? You may try giving him a pain killer and a muscle relaxant for some time along with some local heat or diathermy treatment. If symptoms persist. consult a rheumatologist and orthopedician.
