I have had chronic chest and back pain, what could be causing this ?

I am a 53 yr old female. 5"1 and 108 lbs. For the last 8 months I have had chronic chest and back pain. I have had a battery of test ran including a chest x-ray, CT Angiogram, Cardiolite stress test, echocardiogram(mitral valve prolapse with trivial regurgitation detected), 5 ekg's, calcium score and blood work. All but an invasive angiogram. ALL my tests have been negative. what could be causing this chest and back pain discomfort? My doctor says I may have GERD and have just started some acid reducing medication. I have also been told that I may have costachronditis, musclo-skeletal pain, muscle strains...etc.. I just need some answers! HELP!

Ok as doctor has said that you have GERD frequent use of pain killers will also cause more acidity and ulcer. you can go for physiotherapy

If could tell us the consequences following starting treatment of acid reducing agents, it would have led us better in reaching a conclusion.

Even long standing mitral valve prolapse can cause these complaints.
