I have been having chest pain for the past few weeks. What could this be ?

I've been having chest pain for the past few weeks. What could this be?
I am a premed graduate so I know the protocols for checking my health. I have a family history of diabetes and heart problem, so I make sure to check my blood pressure, respiratory and pulse rate. And it is always normal. My blood sugar and cholesterol level is also normal. Last year 2005 I got to check my ECG and it is also normal. What could be the reason for my chest pain?

I'm not a medical person, but I would say a few things - there is an excellent discussion of the many causes at Plus, you need to go to a good doctor, you know that, right? And by that I mean see an internist, not a cardiologist who will jump to the conclusion that it's heart related. I had a friend who was on heart meds and scared to death for years before a better doctor found it was inflammation of the esophagus and fixed it with two weeks of antibiotics. So, stop putting this off because you're worried. At your age, it is unlikely to be anything serious, I would think. Get it fixed and out of the way. And then when your future patients act like chickens, you'll have some empathy :-)
