Hi,Vimal thanks for query.Just remove fear.The needed diagnostic test for heart problem has been done then why to worry ? Do your routine chores,take adequate sleep and stop worrying.This could be external muscular pain or anxiety.You can try deep breathing exercise and meditation for your anxiety.bye.

Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
hello,

your cardiac status is normal. there are several possibilities. One is that the pain could be coming from the muscles between the ribs known as the intercostals. If this is the case you could be suffering from intercostals myalgia.Another cause of left side chest pain could be pain in the pectoral muscle. you have to rule it out by consulting a orthopedician.it may be simple gastritis also.dont worry, if you are having a heart attack you will probably experience rather different symptoms. Not only is the pain in a different place (the centre of the chest), but it also feels like a more squeezing, heavy feeling rather than a sharp pain. if all these ruled out it can be anxiety ,for that u have to consult psychiatrist.take care

As your EKG findings are normal but you still have anxiety and fear of Heart Disease, you can be well treated with Homoeopathic Psychology Medicine. Do consult Homoeopathic Internist nearby to et rid of this Fear & Anxiety.

I am from Bangladesh. I am in a private service in Dhaka. I felt chest pain for last six months and so i we went a cardiologist in SQUARE Hospital in Dhaka. He gave me some test like ECG,ECHO, blood tests and ETT. All other tests except ETT was found normal. I was for 9 and half minutes in excercise tolerance test. I didn t feel bad. But the cardiologist told me that he found some significant changes in third stage of test. So, he stopped the test and he advised me to do an angiography for better result. He suspected that there may be block. Then I went to another cardiologist in National Heart foundation of Bangladesh and he advised me not to do angiography right now. He prescribed me some medicines like Anclog plus, Anzitor, Ecospirin and advised me to walk an hour every day. By this time I talked to my sister in USA. She consulted with a doctor there and the doctor said if ETT test is positive it will be better to do an angiography. Then I went to another cardiologist for third opinion. I went to Prof. Dr. Afzalur Rahman, MD (Card), Phd (card), FACC (USA), FRCP (Edin), FRCP (Glasgow), Fellow in Intervention cardiology (France & USA), awarded CRT2009. He also checked my tests and advised me to do an angiography as soon as possible to be risk free and to know the actual result. So I did Coronary angiography under him at Square hospital. My CAG report was normal. There was no blockage in heart as per result from CAG. He advised me to feel free and stopped all medicines. He told me that the cause of the pain might be from muscle strain or Gas. Still I feel chest pain and it seemed at middle of chest and sometimes from middle to left or right. I feel tired sometimes. I have my CAG report and CD with me. I need your suggestions and advice
