Hi, , welcome to HCM.
Sporadic chest pain with left sided radiation suggests unstable angina. Though your old reports are normal.
I will suggest it will be very helpful to do diagnostic coronary angiography. It will definitely diagnose the problem.
If are periodic alcohol consumers then please ask for pancreatitis evaluation like amylase and lipase examination and sonography abdomen.
Hope your query has been answered.
Thanking you.

Hi ,
Welcome to HCM,
not all chest pain is due to heart problem ,
from your history it less likey due to heart problem ,
cervical rib , muscle band , muscle spasm , neuropathy also can cause same type of pain ,
consult your family physician and get evaluated for same ,
