Suffering from chest pain, couldn't find the reason after so many test

I am 21, 5.4 feet and weigh 120. I play soccer for a team. I train regularly, work and also attend classes. For the past month I have been experiencing chest pains on the left side above the breast. The pain is there continuously. I have been to ER twice and have also seen two other doctors. I did a number of tests including xray, ECG , blood works and ultra sound. They ruled out heart. The doctors claim they are not seeing anything based on all those test results. I do not have shortness of breath , tiredness or any other symptom. Just this constant pain and neither did I have any other previous medical condition . Please give me some advice. I will like to know what do you think could be the cause of this pain. I do not drink alcohol or smoke.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Apart from chest Pains, what other symptoms do you have? Does the Pain increase on touch? Since all your Reports are Negative for any heart ailment, it could be Costochondritis or Tietze Syndrome. It is the Inflammation of a rib or the cartilage connecting a rib. It is a common cause of chest pain. Kindly get yourself examined by a Orthopedist as you need a thorough evaluation to confirm it. Don't worry it is not a serious issue though. The cause could be, Injury or Physical strain, referred Pain, Infection or Upper Respiratory Illness. You will require analgesics or antibiotics if you have a Infection, Anti depressants or Muscle relaxants.
Get adequate rest, avoid activities that aggravate your Pain. Do gentle exercises like swimming and brisk walking, Don't overdo it, and stop if exercise increases your pain.
Apply a heat pad to the painful area several times a day.
Once your pain is gone, take it easy. Slowly work your way back to your normal activities.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
