Yes, of course. I did have an ecg last week and GP not worried. I shall probably have to go back. She didn't think it necessary to refer me to a cardiologist. I am fed up with feeling unwell.

Brief Answer:
Musculoskeletal system needs to be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome again,
Thats good that your cardiac investigations are within normal limits.
The second possibility for chest pain is musculoskeletal pain.
Muscle pain usually occurs due to muscle fatigue caused by muscle overwork.
Muscle fatigue can occur in trauma to chest, excessive coughing, inflammation of the pleura, etc.
Keeping in view these possibilities, X-ray chest and CT chest is suggested.

Consult your physician for further work up.
An exact diagnosis can be made after complete clinical assessment.

Thanks and take care
