What causes chest pains and cold sweats?

I am suffering chest pain. The pain can sometimes be extreme.I aslo suffer from cold sweats. I also have chronic hypertension. I take blood pressure medicine, but I have yet to find the right dosage to bring it under control. I have a stent, which I got in 2008. I recently had a cardiac cath and nothing was found. The pain responds to nitro.I have seen multiple doctors and the best answer I got was a pinched nerve. Something was also said about some swelling around my ribs.
