Some causes of chest pain: Heart failure Heart Disease Anxiety Heartburn Panic Attacks Myocardial Infarction Pancreatic malfunction Disfunctional stomach cardiac sphincter Trauma to chest Nerve disfunction/damage Symptoms can point to almost all of these. WHAT I WOULD DO: go see your family doc and ask him his opinion. Tell him you want a 12 line EKG (to test the function of your heart) Tell him you want a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) like nexium to check the stomach route. Tell him you want a referral to a psychologist (to count out the anxiety stuff). You don't have to do it all, but those are the three root causes of MOST possibilities of chest pain. I wish you the best of luck.
