I have symptoms like heart attack

What could these symptoms be? I seem to be ok with my heart according to emergency room doctors? I don t want to sound stupid, but I ve been in the emergency room 5 times within the last month for symptoms similar to heart attack . The first few times the doctors didn t even want to look at me and told me that I was having panic attacks. Just the other day I was deeply in pain again and went and they did ekg x rays and all that. They said I was fine. I don t understand. The pain has to be coming from somewhere. I don t have a regular doctor because I don t have insurance and can t get none for at least four weeks. The pain is getting worse even though I m trying to eat right... I m 29 years old and watched my 22 year old cousin die of a heart attack so I know it can happen to me. The doctors aren t doing a thorough search I believe... What should I say the next time I go in if there is a next time?

I had chest pain that went undiagnosed for 2 years. Then they discovered a herniated disc in my thoracic spine that was causing the symptoms. Anemia and gallbladder can also cause chest pain. You need to schedule an appt. with your Dr. to start investigating the cause. ER Dr.s will only treat your presenting symptoms, and if it's not your heart they really won't investigate further because it's not life threatening. So you really need to see your family doc to get started on this. Good luck to you!
