Why am I having heart/chest pains ?

I ve been having stabbing chest pains above and to the right of my heart for about a year now. I went to the doctor recently, and he told me that I may have Pre-Cordial Catch Syndrome, which he said is thought to be a pinched nerve in my chest cavity. He said it s nothing serious, I dont think hes right though; it hurts very much and very often. He wont give me any medicine for it. What else could it be? Has anyone had the same problem?

YES---the best thing to do is take bayer( dissolves best) aspirin on a semi-full stomach----this will aleviate the pain by clearing the partial blockage for better blood flow.....the same thing was said to me by a doctor about pinched nerve bullshit....i had a heart attack at 30 yrs. of age.....then the cardiologist said take aspirin it will prevent many people from having a second heart attack....ive had some close calls---at one time i was taking 6 aspirin a day to relieve the pain now since being in florida( which thins your blood naturally) for 10 yrs. i take 1-2 per day works ....i am now 65 yrs. of age & told by a doctor yrs. ago i would never see 40....aspirin is a miracle drug without the normal stumbling block of a prescription by a doctor that does not really care...........remember 1 thing doctors practice medicine---if while practising you die, well they say ooops --better try something else next are just a name & a number.....learn to protect yourself read any vitamin & MINERAL BOOKS , your heart needs magnesium desperately to function properly....start with 100 mg. magnesium to relieve this pain also......along with 1 aspirin per day-----if you bruise more easily cut back on aspirin--- 1 every other day or two---by the way if your heart is having problems sometimes you will have referred pain ---where the heart will not emit pain but refer pain to other parts of the chest---have you ever felt a sharp pain from your right nipple----this usually means angina pectoris ----the pectoris is your chest muscles--- angina means referred heart pain--to the chest muscles---angina pectoris usually happens when you exert yourself physically---lifting or going up stairs.....shortness of breath sometimes also......
