I have been having intermentent chest pain since around June. I have went to my doctor and the ER mulitiple times. I have had 3 EKG's, blood work twice, and a Treadmill stress test all have came back normal. i have pre-hypertension, My blood pressure changes from time to time. 135ish to 145ish over a mid 80 depending on what i'm doing sittin still 125/80 65 heart rate. The pain is in the center of my chest, goes to my side, to my bicep, my back at times and my right bicep. My chest area feels really tender at times and when i'm sitting or laying down i feel like my heart is going to beat out of my chest. I use my Reli-on blood pressure test and my BP is normal and my heart rate never over 85bpm.

I keep thinking i'm going to die, i have a horrible case of insomnia because i don't want to die while i'm sleeping. Iam currently taking Zoloft which i cannot tell to be working. My Tri's,platlets and cholesterol are good.
The chest pain seems to come and go, i walk all day at work it comes and goes, shoveling snow, having intimate time, i have no pain. Its really intermitnet and starts and stops on its own. sitting laying, doesn't matter.

I do not know what route to take anyone have any ideas?

  • Our symptoms sound alot alike.I am almost $36000.00 into this and still don't have a diagnosis.I too have high blood pressure and am taking meds for it and it keeps it pretty much like yours.I have had a ton of EKG's, MRI, Stess tests, x-rays, ultrasounds, bloodwork and still no answer.They thought it was my gall bladder so they removed it, still have the same problem. It has gotten worse as of late, I have a appointment scheduled for Wed. to see a gastroenterologist to see if he will look at my stomach.I feel the same way you do. Sometimes when I lay down I feel like my heart is going to beat out of my chest. I'm tired of worrying about death.This has been going on for far too long.If its not my heart.........it sure feels like it.Please let me know if you discover anything.Will say a prayer for you.Steve.
