How to treat chest pain?

Just returned from 2nd emergency visit for severe chest pain, which radiates down my arm, extrem shortness of breath. Ekg, chest x ray and blood work all normal. Right now my chest still feels very tight with a pinching sensation now and then, and still very short of breath!! I tried to insist on further testing, i really wanted an angeogram. My mother has had two strokes, first on at age 49, my died at 47, angina, both grandfathers had heart disease. \i am 41, and smoke. How do I make them test me further? \i just know something is wrong. As well, this visit today i am very unsatisfied with, i feel they only did what they minimally had to to keep me happy, i feel they should have atleast tried ruling out my gallbladder, but not even a mention of it

hello there

I will try to shed some of your concerns

Reading your history it seems you've been having a panic attack given the family history of heart illness. Since your tests seem normal the hospital too realises your mental state and is not keen to work you up further.

So here is what you have to do.. Cut back on your smoking.. try chi running.. talk your anxiety evoking issues within your family .. and get along with life

Hope I have been of some help to you

Keep healthy and live happy
