Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic For your query,
Have gone through your details.
Most likely your symptom is because of Gastritis,heart burn and other gastric issuues.

However to rule out coronary artery disease i would recommend you some baseline tests of cardiology like-
Stress test-Stress test-Any ischemia to cardiac muscles will be reflected in stress test.
2D echo to see the cardiac functions and wall motility.
Combine together with echo they have a sensitivity rate of more then 85% to rule out coronary artery disease.

If these tests are normal,The pain is either gastric or muscular or due to increased anxiety levels.
Advice
Follow up with reports.
Thanks.

Hi, I have been suffering from erosive gastritis for 2 years now. My attacks sometime lasts for hours and I get my attack almost everyday. Antacids don t seem to take effect most of the times. I sweat alot and cannot speak when I get my attack. I have done a number of test from endoscopy, blood test to heterophile antibody test, which all came back negative. They just say that I have a few ersoions in my stomache. I have taken all sorts of medications from esomoprezole for almost a year, to ranitidine , pylokit. I am taking vitcofol injection (10 shots), sanofide, emanzen, rabeprazole , zenpride, ofloxacin at the moment but It doesn t seem to help. My right breast (rib cage) hurts first and the pain spread around back. I asked the doctors why right breast hurts but they say it is not related to my erosive gastritis, but whenever I get the attack, my right breast hurts the most. I had my gal bladder removed a few years ago.
