I have has chest pain for the last 6 months, kindly help me

Hello, I have has chest pain for the last 6 months. I am a male, 26 and over weight (but working on that) I have been to the ER at least 6 times with ekg ,s blood work and chest x-rays all of witch are ok. I have had a nuclear stress test and it was ok. I keep getting BAD pain in my chest that ranges from pressure to sharp to something like some one has there hand in there squeezing my insides. It moves into my shoulder with sharp pain sometimes and right now my upper abdomen is hurting along with my chest and has been since 11 pm last night. P.S I went back to the er last night and checked out ok.

As per your symptoms you should be having what is known as acid reflux.where in the contents of stomach as well as acid comes back in food pipe due to poor functioning of a valve between stomach and food pipe.there are many reasons like over weight,smoking,bad food habits,taking junk food etc.As long as your cardiac workup is normal this seems to be the most likely.Avoid all the things in food mentioned above.Avoid sleeping upto 2 hours after meal.Reduce weight,do regular exercise and as and when pain occurs take antacids.Take regular periodically something to eat rather then having two large meals.
