Thank you for the query.

If your chest pain is similar to that from 4 years (radiating to the left arm or jaw) it can be a heart pain. In such situation, coronarography should be repeated. If this pain is more like burning, it can be caused by acid reflux or peptic ulcer. In such case, upper GI endoscopy should be done as well with Helicobacter Pylori test.

Hope this will help.
