I keep having chest pains and what could these pains be as ive had an ECG and it showed up clear ?

Every so often I get sharp chest pains, it feels like there directly underneath my left breast. It happens mostly when i get distressed or even laugh to much i.e when im exerting myself the pain just appears from nowhere and i cant breath in to much or out to much, if i do its like someone is stabbing me with a sharp pin in the chest! The pain generally lasts for about 1 minute, but sometimes it can go on for 5 mins or more, then i start to panic and think im goin to die. What could these pains be as ive had an ECG and it showed up clear.

Hi I have chest pain that like and my Professor (heart specialist) has said its muscular pains in the chest area. I have had seven heart ops and still get chest pains and they are just muscula pains and all you can do is stop and have some water, this helps me. If you smoke you need to cut down or stop (hey i smoke at times). Try and relax when this happens but if the pains get worse then go back to your GP and get them to refer you to a heart specialist who do much more test than just an ECG. It could even be heart burn due to eat fast or something like that. Good luck

Hello Doctor, My name is Careyanne Johnson I am a 21 year old female. I am growing concerned with my well being because I have been experiencing some foreign symptoms. Starting with today the right side of my mouth has been partially numb for going on several hours now & I am having throbbing headache that comes and goes behind the back of my lower head & temples. Just a couple days ago my toes (on the right side again) were numb as well. I have also been having sharp, deep chest pains for a few months now. At first I thought it could maybe be heart burn but realized it is a much different ache. I think its safe to say the chest pains have grown more frequent because I m counting them every day now instead of once or twice a week. The only other symptoms I can think of is my ears will ring every now and then but still more so then I would think is normal. & I feel like I have poor circulation to my legs cause sometimes they feel stiff, however I also have a job where I stand without sitting for up to 8 hours a day. I have had Health issues in the past where I would become very light headed, my vision would go black, and I sometimes would faint. the fainting spells never lasted more then 5 mins. I was only unconscious for 30 seconds to 1 min. I have seen a neurologist and he conducted many tests, an MRI or brain scan being one of them. My results were all negative. The dr. did refer me to a cardiologist that I never went to. My fear is I may have a stroke or heart attack please help!

43 year old female, normal weight in good health. .Total hysterectomy done Dec. 2010, benign ovarian mass; 2 weeks after episode of PSVT, then next week chest pain and spasms. 1 episode of tachycardia of 140's bpm sustained for 1 hour. Preop ekg normal and new ekgs show slight t wave changes. Checked for PE, CT clear and lower ultrasound clear. ECHO 67% EF, normal nuclear and treadmill stress test, normal cardiac cath, carotid us. TSH was 5.4 at the beginning of Jan. but returned to 2.3 2 wks later. Taking Cartia 120 mg once daily and Metoprol 12.5 bid. Sent to cardio EP, who states that condition is due to low sodium levels and advised to up sodium. Sodium levels taken 3xs over this period have been between 133 -135. Intermittent slight chest pain continues, returning to work next week. Primary care does not believe it is due to low sodium levels, doing 24 hr osmality and sodium tests. Is there anything else we should look for?
