i have high gas problem. sometimes chest pain. my ecg has been nomal and treadmill test is normal too. i am taking Amlopres 5 and 2.5 mg, dytor 5 mg, nebicard 5mg and rosuvas 20mg per day as prescribed ny the dosctor for controlling blood pressure. my blood pressure remains normal now bt still there is sometimes chest pain. what exactly is it due to ??

I went to the ER on 6/1/17 with chest pain mostly in the center between my breasts. They ruled out heart disease by doing CT scan with contrast, EKG s, Chest Xray, Treadmill test, ultrasound of heart, blood tests every 6 hours to check enzymes. I was kept over night for observation, but I did notice that the pain nearly went away when I had the IV steroids. I was sent home on 10 mg tablets of prednisone for 3 days only.....4 10 mg; 2 mg; 1 mg. When I finished with the steroids my family doctor prescribed longer use of steroids (10 mg taken 4,4,3,3,2,2,1,1. He felt it would take care of the problem. The chest pains came back once the steroids were out of my system. We decided to try a gastroenterologist,my appt. is 2:30 pm tomorrow, but I am almost 100 percent certain that the inflammation is in the trachea and runs downward which makes a sharp pain when I inhale. I no longer go to a Pulmonary Specialist as I gave up my Cpap machine after using it for 5 years. I could not get a decent night s sleep. What should I do now since I told the Pulmonary Specialist I would not be coming any more. Would I have to get a new Pulmonary Specialist. I don t think the gastro doctor can take care of this. Would I need antibiotics. My oxygen level is 97 or 98 and I have no congestion or phlegm at all and no fever. But I am in terrible pain that goes right through to my back. What do you suggest?

At times it will be beating regularly then all of a sudden for no apparent reason start beating very fast and usually will last between 20 seconds and a minute or two usually leaving me with like a hot flash feeling in my face when it subsides . any ideas what this could be I've had halter monitors and 48 hr monitors ekg's . no specific diagnosis
