Hi,

Chronic chest pain cannot be totally ruled out by a resting ECG and X-rays. In fact, persons with coronary artery disease may have a normal resting ECG. And a better work-up to rule out a cardiac source of chest pain is to undergo stress testing - either stress Echo or just a plain treadmill ECG stress test, whichever is available. Considering that you have another risk factor for atherosclerosis which is your elevated cholesterol levels, it is noteworthy to check a cardiac cause rather than the lesser serious causes like gastrointestinal causes.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Daryl Derick B. Dizon, General & Family Physician
