Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your situation and problem.
Left sided chest pain is commonly seen in heart diseases.
So better to first get done ecg and 2d echo.
If both are normal, than no need to worry for cardiac diseases.
Sometimes, stress and tension related GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) can also cause left sided and central chest pain.
So better to consult psychiatrist and get done counseling sessions. Try to identify stressor in your life and start working on its solution.
You may need anxiolytic and proton pump inhibitor drugs too.
So avoid stress and tension. Be relax and calm.
Don't worry, you will be alright.
But first rule out cardiac diseases.
Hope I have solved your query. Wish you good health. Thanks.
